Gorgon Stare - New Drone to Deploy to Afghanistan

This winter the Air Force will deploy a new drone to Afghanistan that has some excellent capabilities above and beyond the UAS's that are now there.  The new drone, called the Gorgon Stare, is named after a mythical Greek creature whose eyes could turn people to stone.  The UAS will be able to transmit images from multiple cameras to users at viewing stations on the ground.

"With Air Force's new drone, 'we can see everything'", The Washington Post, January 2, 2011.  Read more news on the Afghanistan War.
