Eyes and Ears in the Sky The Stingray is a sophisticated cellphone dragnet device that mimics a cell tower, scanning all cellphone signals in a given area and monitoring communications on them. It can be deployed on the ground or by air. At least 57 agencies in 22 states and the District of Columbia have Stingrays.
