GENERAL
1. Work on this project has, to date, demonstrated
the following:
A. Birds are capable of being trained to
perform an operational useful task
carrying an adequate payload.
B. Training can insert a specified "detour"
leg into the birds' usual homing behavior.
C. The ability to translate the above behavior
from a training location to a distant
operational target area seems likely.
