Tethered Aerostat Radar System (TARS)

TARS is a balloon-borne radar. It’s primary mission is to provide radar data in support of federal agencies involved in the nation’s drug interdiction program. The TARS seen here is operated by U.S Customs and Border Protection, Office of Air and Marine, to assist in alleviating drug trafficking on the Southwest Border.
