When the RQ-170 went down over Iran, concerns were raised about sensitive technology being compromised. This is the same drone that was reported to have provided the live video feed of the SEALs mission that took down Bin Laden.
However much more advanced surveillance capabilities have been fielded,or are under development that have pushed the envelope well beyond what fell into Iranian hands.
GORGON STARE, deployed last year and undergoing further development, upped the ante by using 9 cameras to,provide 24hour coverage of an entire town or city.
Now check out ARGUS-IS which provides up to 65 separate video feeds for even greater scrutiny over wide areas from the air. It's reached the point that computers are being taught how to analyze and interpret the video images as human analysts would be swamped by the sheer volume of data.
Big Brother just got bigger..
