What Spy Drones Can See from 17,500 ft (5,300 m)
This is both interesting and disturbing. It’s only 5 minutes long. Well worth a few minutes of your time to view IMHO.
Notes from the sender:
This is cutting edge, and then some, photography. Having worked in aerial reconnaissance, when I was in the Navy, I can tell you that the size of the area being covered, and the high quality of the imagery are, beyond incredible! What a breakthrough!!!! This imagery is being taken from 17,500 feet up. That is roughly equal to 3-1/2 miles. To say the least, I’m extremely impressed, but I think that just about anyone, particularly those with experience in SERIOUS photography, and especially those having a military photographic background, will be.
What do I think? Those images could be you or me. If you are doing nothing wrong, you have nothing to worry about…at least for today. The fact that they are able to apply this technology to our private lives has troubling potential. Too much invasion of our private lives by government either now or in the future? You must determine that. Another troubling aspect, from 17,500 feet the drone can see you from that altitude, but you can’t see the drone.
