Can the “Seidarm” Surveillance Technology be a Virtual Border Wall?

When Trump imagines his border wall between the United States and Mexico, I’m pretty sure his mental image doesn’t match Glenn Spencer’s. That’s because Spencer, president of Border Technology Inc., has a mental image of a virtual wall comprised of buried sensors and drones. Spencer call’s his virtual wall technology “seidarm.”

Spencer is the president of Border Technology Inc. He also heads the non-profit American Border Patrol.

He believes Trump’s $20 billion border wall isn’t a practical solution to keep out illegal immigrants.

That’s where the “seidarm” surveillance technology comes into play. It involves sensors buried in the ground and drones.

“You could be sitting in a border patrol office and when the alarm goes off, you could sit there and the drone will show you a picture of who it is who’s crossing the border. This is doable today.”
