1.8 gigapixel ARGUS-IS. World's highest resolution video surveillance platform by DARPA

1 million terabytes a day saved forever. The ARGUS array is made up of several cameras and other types of imaging systems. The output of the imaging system is used to create extremely large, 1.8GP high-resolution mosaic images and video. The U.S. Army, along with Boeing, has developed and is preparing to deploy a new unmanned aircraft called the "Hummingbird." It's is a VTOL-UAS (vertical take-off and landing unmanned aerial system). Three of them are being deployed to Afghanistan for a full year to survey and spy on Afghanistan from an altitude of 20,000 feet with the ability to scan 25 square miles of ground surface. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Surveillance From Rise of the Drones Meet a new breed of flying robots, from tiny swarming vehicles to giant unmanned planes.

USA Will Launch Satellite Without "Rocket": ALASA Concept by Darpa
Witout rocket but with powerful US F-15 jet Plane. Airborne Launch Assist Space Access, or DARPA ALASA, a current program of the US defense technology agency DARPA "designed to produce a rocket capable of launching a 100-pound satellite into low Earth orbit for less than $1 million." The program was conceived, then announced in 2011, and funded development work began in 2012. Credit video: Darpa Traditional launch methods of satellites are too costly to put small payloads into orbit without a larger payload accompanying it to make the launch worth the expense. Current launches of sub-100-pound satellites are performed as "piggyback payloads" on launches of much larger spacecraft, usually headed for geostationary orbit, and are released at the altitude of the primary payload. In addition, range costs of operating from ground-based infrastructure have escalated as they have aged, accounting for up to 35 percent of the launch cost. This restricts the number of light satellite launches to 10-12 per year, which could be increased if small payloads could be launched into space affordably and without ground range constraints. Air-launching satellites was first seriously considered during the 1950s and 1960s, but small payloads in the 100-pound class at the time did not have effective capabilities, so the method was overlooked. The first air-launched rocket to put a satellite into orbit was the Orbital Sciences Corporation Pegasus on 13 June 1990, but it was deployed from a heavily modified and expensive Lockheed L-1011 airliner. The ALASA program's objective is to use an unmodified aircraft platform (except for software) that does not have to be dedicated to the mission to place a 100 lb satellite into orbit that requires only 24 hours notice to integrate and launch the payload, with the ability to re-plan the launch in flight and relocate the aircraft to any civilian airport or military airfield in a crisis situation, while using onboard GPS/inertial position reporting rather than ground-based radar tracking. In the first phase, Boeing, Lockheed Martin and Virgin Galactic were funded to explore different Alasa system concepts while Northrop Grumman, Space Information Laboratories and Ventions were contracted to work on enabling technologies that could be used by any or all of the system teams. In December 2012, DARPA announced that the ALASA program would provide the launch vehicle Booster for another DARPA program that is intending to release a "constellation of 24 micro-satellites (~20 kilograms (44 lb) range) each with 1-meter imaging resolution." In May 2013, DARPA requested US$40 million for a second year of ALASA program funding in spring 2013.

Air Force Bugbot Nano Drone Technology
Air Force Bugbots Nano Drone video gives a peak inside what nano-drone technology the Federal Government is currently implementing within the united states more than a scary thought or sci-fi movie, they have arrived. The deadly, insect-sized drones of the future - Unobtrusive, Invasive, and Lethal are here as depicted in this old video The Air Force is reportedly developing winged drones that can sneak up on a suspected enemy as stealthily as a mosquito This is the video missing from this article: http://theweek.com/article/index/240285/watch-the-deadly-insect-sized-drone s-of-the-future# A law signed by President Barack Obama in February 2012 directs the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to throw American airspace wide open to drones by September 30, 2015. Nano sized Drones Combined With DNA Hacking Could Create A Very Scary Future for the United States in light of a law president Obama signed last year implementing a fleet of at least 30,000 spy drones to spy on small town USA no later than 2015 to spy on Americans. Unfortunately this is a true story and as long as we continue to let politicians like President Barack Obama and other democrats pick apart and fundamentally change our constitution instead of protecting it, we move closer to an extreme communist state in our country. In case you didn't know it - and you probably didn't - Congress, with little fanfare, passed an FAA re-authorization bill that President Obama signed into law that will put 30,000 flying drones spying on Americans across U.S. cities by government. People are already nervous about the prospect of being watched by law enforcement (and possibly the military or DHS), but our leaders employ these tools nevertheless and "we the people" are letting them. Even the liberal news huffington post has a video news story about this although they try to legitimize the reasons for needing this to save lives. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/09/19/drones-unmanned-aircrafts-us-airsp ace_n_1896839.html The president has ordered 30,000 spy drones to be used within the United States to spy on Americans to be implemented by 2015 We are already seeing evidence of spy drones being used within the United States and NOT for border patrol Government Spy Drone Crashes in Maryland but what about preserving our constitutional rights and freedoms? http://baltimore.cbslocal.com/2012/06/12/recent-crash-raises-questions-abou t-drone-safety/ MORE SOURCES AND RELATED STORIES: The Future of Drone Surveillance: Swarms of Cyborg Insect Drones - http://www.networkworld.com/community/blog/future-drone-surveillance-swarms -cyborg-insect-drones Tiny robot mosquito drones being researched by the US government - http://2tfu.com/2012/06/16/tiny-robot-mosquito-drones-being-researched-by-t he-us-government/ National Geographic Story: http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/2013/03/unmanned-flight/horgan-text Government Working On Mosquito-Sized Drones - http://www.ijreview.com/2012/06/8545-bio-inspired-drones-swarms-of-eyes/ Micro-Drones Combined With DNA Hacking Could Create A Very Scary Future - Business Insider - http://www.businessinsider.com/government-collected-dna-and-future-micro-dr ones-are-downright-scary-2012-10 USA Today Story: http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/news/washington/story/2012-06-19/drone-backl ash/55682654/1 Studying butterfly flight to help build bug-size flying robots - http://phys.org/news/2012-02-butterfly-flight-bug-size-robots.html US military developing insect surveillance drones - http://www.presstv.ir/detail/2012/07/28/253223/us-developing-robot-mosquito -spy-drones/ Video of squadron of nano quad rotor aerial drones - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YQIMGV5vtd4 http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/02/02/flying-robots-nano-quadrotor-drone s-swarm_n_1249442.html http://www.theblaze.com/stories/2012/02/01/nano-drone-swarm-shows-off-sligh tly-creepy-formation-skills/ British Army Using Tiny Drones: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d5TdbMu8xc4 Drones In U.S.: More Unmanned Aircraft Will Be Flying In Domestic Airspace By 2015 (VIDEO) - http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/09/19/drones-unmanned-aircrafts-us-airsp ace_n_1896839.html Washington Times Story over Domesticly Used Drones: http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2012/feb/7/coming-to-a-sky-near-you/?pa ge=all Snopes reports nano drones true but then brushes it off - http://www.snopes.com/photos/technology/insectdrone.asp
