Now, Army developers and engineers are working on wiring on the A160 and performing ground tests with ARGUS. As the ARGUS sensors has never been imputed/implemented in any other, so they are adding some different types of antennas in order to ensure the complete integration. Test flights will begin at Yuma Proving Grounds, Arizona in 2012.

“This is a very usable system that will provide an enormous (intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance) multiplier for the troops,” Leininger (who started the ARGUS-IS program just over three years ago) said. “It gives them a new and better way to see what is around them with a big eye in the sky.” Now we can have a sound sleep with any worries.
