So it seems the use of the spy drone is moving from military to civilian surveillance now and in the coming years...
What next armed drones ready to take out vehicles during car chases? Thermal and IR vision?
Here's what Stark Aerospace offers for their drones:
Stark Aerospace’s Electro-Optics team produces and repairs electro-optic sensors that are used on airborne, ground and maritime vehicles, as
well as for perimeter observation. Stark’s variety of sensor systems have capabilities to support day or night/thermal observation, surveillance,
tracking, ranging and targeting. With the additional capability for laser ranging and target designation, Stark’s EO/IR systems provide the
operator with the flexibility to support any operational need. The gyro-stabilized Plug-In Optronic (POP) EO/IR sensors include the POP300 and the
POP300D equipped with a laser tracking and designation system.

They can see you through the roof of your car or house. High res imagining coupled with facial recognition software could potentially be used to even
pick people out of crowds. Since nearly everyone has a cell phone that task is even easier.
One thing is for sure - every technology law enforcement gets their hands on is eventually abused and used against innocent people. This trend is
going in to high gear and I suspect they will be deploying these as fast as they can build them.
This bothers me to no end. I fear for the fate of America when they will now be capable of finding anyone and pointing a weapon at their head at any
time. We're all hostages now.
