A balloon with a U.S. military contract passed over Indian country, including Oklahoma, Pueblos, Navajo, Hopi, Paiute Shoshone, and Fort Peck, before passing above the U.S. Canadian border. The surveillance balloon floated above Montreal, Canada, and Maine, and then offshore of New Foundland, Canada.
The balloon, owned by Aerostar of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, received a U.S. military contract on July 28 -- bundled in a $900 million Airforce contract for new technology. Aerostar said it carries out surveillance, intelligence and reconnaissance. Documents filed with the FAA state surveillance balloons are searching for "threats to Homeland Security." The ACLU earlier expressed concern over this persistent surveillance.
