    Here is a video showing some rangers using FLIR to detect poachers in pitch black. Go to 6:17 in the video. I know thats not in our budget, but you get an idea of what they have used already.

      Catching up here... great video that all team members should see. I am looking to create a FLIR for us inexpensively. We'll see.

    That was a MAV mission but the last picture gives an impression of the ground cover (they claim to have flown @ around 250ft)

    I don't know iff there is any way to spot `camo-people' unless you're almost on top of them:-(

      I am catching up... thanks Marco for sharing this article. Maybe we should skip the challenge and just build our UAV to catch poachers ourselves. = )
