The Next Generation of Surveillance: “Any Moving Object Is Being Automatically Tracked”

The following video highlights one of the scariest surveillance technologies you’ve ever seen.

 

With Congress having recently authorized 30,000 drones to patrol America’s skies by 2015, this technology will soon become available to law enforcement officials all over the country.

 

It’s creator, Yiannis Antoniades, says that it’s the next generation of surveillance and as you’ll see, it’s capabilities are so advanced that it can actively scan an area encompassing 15 square miles – about the area of a medium sized city – from an altitude of 20,000 feet.

 

Moreover, it tracks every single moving object in its field of view, streaming the high definition video back to monitoring stations on the ground.

 

With 1.8 billion pixels it is the world’s highest resolution camera. ARGUS fits inside the belly of an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle.

 


 

Also known as Wide Area Persistent Stare, Argus is the equivalent of having up to 100 predators look at an area the size of a medium sized city at once.

 


 

Everything that is a moving object is being automatically tracked… You can see individuals crossing the street. You can see individuals walking in parking lots. There’s actually enough resolution to be able to see people waving their arms or what kind of clothes they wear.

 

You can pick the location of where you produce these images anywhere in the entire field of view.

 


 

Antoniades can open up to sixty five windows at once and see objects as small as six inches on the ground.

 


 

ARGUS streams live to the ground and also stores everything. One million terabytes of video per day.

 


 

ARGUS may be mounted on an armed UAV, a long range platform, or a developmental craft called the solar eagle that may some day stay aloft for years at a time.

 


 

We’re moving towards an increasingly electronic society where our movements are going to be tracked.

 


 

If you’re not doing anything wrong, then you have nothing to worry about.

 

But, with hundreds of thousands of laws on the books and definitions for terrorist activity expanding to everything from minting your own silver coin to bringing a toy bubble gun to school, just about everyone is a terrorist or criminal in America today.

 

Now, consider this technology in the context of extra-judicial drone strikes initiated by artificial intelligence assessment parameters that automatically determine if you are a threat or not, and you can see how dangerous drones armed with these imaging systems will become.

 

How long before these military grade assault weapons of mass destruction are used on American citizens right here at home?
