The U.S. government’s plan to lay sensors across the Mexico-U.S. border have been stopped yet again due to technical flaws.

First reported by Wired, the Customs and Border Protection, Office of Technology Innovation and Acquisition (OTIA) original filing in 2011 for the intent to install unattended ground and image sensors (UGSs) has now been updated with a cancellation notice.

The business solicitation, submitted by the Department of Homeland Security and Customs and Border Protection Office, documents the use of UGS to help blanket the boarder in order to “track, identify, and classify illegal incursions,” therefore saving harassed border agents time and energy when trying to keep the border clear of those trying to jump the fence and enter the United States illegally.
