During the war on terrorism in Afghanistan, Predator unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), flying lengthy missions at heights of some 25,000 feet, have been providing multihour surveillance of designated geography, installations, and activity.
Tasking to the Predator, as well as electro-optical video and infrared images collected by its cameras, move near-instantaneously to and from the theater commanders and officials in Washington.
Such communications flow through a secure network of ground stations and satellites, with part of the product traveling through a classified Internet counterpart.
