Can we set up private sensor grids to detect/record the presence of UFOs?  There are already a variety of sensors available, sports radar, sports lidar, but these are expensive.  Could we use a grid of motion capture game cameras?  Does someone know what the maximum altitude by which a game camera can capture an aircraft?  I suppose it could be tested by using a game camera pointed upwards along the standard flight path of aircraft landing patterns.  It would be nice to know whether someone has already tested different models for this capability and which would be the best model to set up a vertical detection grid.  Then areas with frequent UFO sightings could have grids set up in a tripwire fashion to capture images along suspected flight paths of UFOs.

If there were such areas I'm certain that it'd have been done already by now.
