ARGUS-IS
"The mission of the Autonomous Real-time Ground Ubiquitous Surveillance - Imaging System (ARGUS-IS) program is to provide military users a flexible and responsive capability to find, track and monitor events and activities of interest on a continuous basis in areas of interest. The overall objective is to increase situational awareness and understanding enabling an ability to find and fix critical events in a large area in enough time to influence events. ARGUS - IS provides military users an "eyes-on" persistent wide area surveillance capability to support tactical users in a dynamic battlespace or urban environment."

If this was on PBS, you can bet the latest 'classified' stuff is much more advanced :shock:

Funny how the sample image was of Virginia....they'll never use this technology to spy on 'us' :roll:

some scary stuff... im sure someday the entire country will be covered 24/7 by these and the data stored forever to enable retrieval at any time. (example: look back at who a bank robber was, who raped that girl in the park, who caused that car accident, etc.etc.etc.) We are on the doorstep of the future and it scary as hell :shock:

I had lunch with a friend from Lynchburg today. That's as country as rural VA gets. She is on the architectural committee of her homeowners association and was curious as to just what you can see on an internet satellite picture so she pulled up her house. Poof - there was her husband standing in the front yard watering the plants. He was clearly recognizable. She could see a lot of detail - the water run off gully, the bee hive, raised flower beds, etc... Scary, huh?
