The article presents the information that soon it will be possible to counter terror piracy from the air. The author states that piracy can no longer be dismissed as just the stuff of movies. Its growing impact on the world economy and the likelihood that terrorists will use piracy to achieve their objectives demand a forceful response. The Aerial Common Sensor, being developed by the U.S. Army and now also the U.S. Navy, could be part of the answer with its capability to find, fix, track and target pirates wherever they hide and in so doing, strike a crucial blow in the war on terror.
