Anduril surveillance towers line up along US-Mexico border


Notorious military tech company Anduril is pushing its technology to the border surveillance market. Along the US-Mexico border, its surveillance towers "use an artificial intelligence system called Lattice to autonomously identify, detect and track “objects of interest”, such as humans or vehicles. The cameras pan 360 degrees and can detect a human from 2.8km away." But border surveillance technology has been shown to lead people to lengthier and more dangerous routes as they seek to avoid detection. And yet public investment keeps flowing into a wider Anduril-sponsored technological apparatus that extends far beyond the border.
