In 2005, graduate students at the Air Force Institute of Technology in Ohio and scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratories developed Angel Fire for "persistent, city-sized surveillance," according to the institute's website. "By providing real-time imaging capabilities, IED and other threats … can be detected, prevented and/or negated. Angel Fire is particularly well-suited to provide enhanced situational awareness to forces operating in an urban environment, convoy operations or other ground operations."Thanks and congratulations to Gary Stradling and the Angel Fire team!
