Intelligence: The Bird Was Lost Then Found

 

A Philippines citizen was arrested in the U.S. last February, as he sought to complete the sale of a U.S. Army RQ-11 Raven UAV. The seller, Henson Chua, had offered the Raven on eBay nearly a year ago, and U.S. officials noted it. Chua was seeking $13,000 for the Raven. It was not revealed where Chua got the Raven, or if it included the controller. The Raven is low-tech, but having one, and being able to examine the way it is put together, could be useful in designing a similar aircraft. Chua violated the Arms Export Control Act, and faces up to 20 years in jail if convicted.
