Salutations Again Above Top Secretions!

whats in the box?



ominous sci-fi lookin towers have gone up all over NYC bridges and tunnels all of a sudden and nobody's talking.
each "tower" seems to cost somewhere shy of 6 million dollars with very little explanation of its purpose or capabilites.
Thats always a good sign, no?
right?
Rumors flying around include facial recognition systems, RF/EM jamming, mass data collection, radiation sensors and others.
My bet is zombie mind control or theyre x-raying and slowly cooking everyone passing near them, because why not?


Jose Lugo said the tall metal towers quickly appeared up after the Brooklyn Battery Tunnel tolls booths came down.
“We don’t really know what’s the purpose of this,” he told Carlin.
It’s a $100 million MTA project shrouded in secrecy, with 18 of them for tunnels and bridges.
. “It’s a bit mind-boggling that the MTA is approving $100 million for what appears to us to be big, decorative pylons,” says John Kaehny, the leader of the watchdog group Reinvent Albany. “What we’re asking for is transparency from the MTA.”


I always love it when a govt stooge says "im not at liberty to discuss".
thats code for "you should be worried"


CBS2 demanded answers from MTA Chairman Joe Lhota. Carlin: “Some of your own board members say they don’t know the specifics.” Lhota: “The base of these new pieces that are going up include whatever fiber optics are necessary for those Homeland Security items.” In other words, anti-terror technology. Could that one day include facial recognition? We don’t know and Lhota won’t say. “I’m not at liberty to discuss that,” he told Carlin. So as more of these expensive towers rise, the mystery is tucked away inside them.

Whatever the hell it is, you can be sure it's not good or innocent.

If they say that the towers went up when the toll booths came down, maybe they are something to do with collecting tolls electronically?
Or when the booths came down, are they stopping toll payments?

these towers seem to be unrelated to the EZ-Pass scanners they already set up before they took down the toll booths

Well whats happening here is that they are ridding of toll booths and human attendants. Maybe it has to do with the new system (which includes cameras that take pictures of your license plates and sends you a bill if you don't have the RF electronic tag in your car).

Most likely chemical detectors DHS is putting them in all major cities.

Why would chemical detectors have 20 LED lights surrounding it?

It’s literally just a fancy electronic tollbooth that just takes your plate picture when you drive through it. That’s why it needs cables, to send it to DHS Incase their on the lookout for somebody. Just as already operating tollbooths already do.




While the materials presented to the MTA board clearly describe the towers as "architectural" in nature, the MTA now says that contrary to those documents, the towers “host cameras, traffic monitoring and other equipment related to homeland security that would otherwise have been hosted by the former toll booth structures.





The MTA cashless tolling conversion has been discussed for years,” he said. “New York State was one of the last to make the transition and it requires additional police to reduce scofflaws. It was a long detailed process and the security devices and electronics involved many different agencies coordinating for years. It is a great success that will reduce congestion and emissions, streamline our transportation arteries and save drivers thousands of hours in commuting time.

I had to think of pollution measurement units.
We have them standing around in our cities, but not looking that futuristic.

Those things on top look like IR leds, and the way they are setup does not appear to me like they are scanning for number plates. Each one seems to have a slightly different orientation. This feels more like area surveillance. Could be IR grid scanning technology akin to the new facial scanner found in the iPhone X.

Lower half has fiberoptic connections I hear. So lots of data. Interesting. Could be part of existing nodes getting an upgrade, could be new to handle the large amounts of data that are being collected. Hard to tell

It definitely has nothing to do with taking pictures of the license plates. That is taken care of by cameras and strobes for each lane attached to a truss that goes over the entire road.

It is interesting that the MTA will not respond to even CBS news.

From Discloser TV website;

One man pointed out, “Some of your own board members say they don’t know the specifics.” Lhota responded, “The base of these new pieces that are going up include whatever fibre optics are necessary for those Homeland Security items.” From that comment,

it seems that what New Yorkers may be dealing with is anti-terror technology. Some are concerned that this technology could that one day include facial recognition software. At this time, the public does not know, and Lhota won’t say.

“I’m not at liberty to discuss that, ” he told Carlin. So as more of these expensive towers are constructed, with whatever surveillance technology they may have, their mysteries remain tucked inside READ MORE:

Don't forget radiation detection as well.

If that's the case intrptr surly it would be too late for the commuters already underground. Not unless there's a total shutdown Code Red operation planned 2ND 3RD stage lockdown/containment.

Would be interesting if these systems where situated Nr Military/LE Camps.


"The detectors could sniff for dangerous chemical weapons agents, such as sarin, soman, sulphur mustard, nerve agents, and similar gases. The detectors’ mission also would include finding evidence of toxic industrial chemicals that are still considered dangerous, such as ammonia, chlorine, formaldehyde, hydrogen chloride, sulphur dioxide, and others, reports Government Security News.

Don't you people know anything??? These are the new homeland security immigration gates. They function just like the Sphinx Gates.. They only let true Americans through...All others are instantly incinerated!! Don't let the new metal case fool you.


This technology has been around for years....

Here is it in action!!
