ABSTRACT
The article reports that the Predator unmanned aerial vehicles operated along the nation's northern and southern borders and maritime environment are less expensive, as compared to manned aircrafts. According to the assistant commissioner for the U.S. Custom and Border Protection's Office of Air and Marine, Michael Kostelnik, the cost per hour to operate the Guardian variant of Predator is about half the cost of operating a P-3 manned aircraft.
