It can cover areas of up to 15 square miles at a glance while still spotting objects as small as six inches around from heights of 17,500 feet. ARGUS not only streams the footage to the ground live, but keeps a stash of video on board as well, a staggeringly massive stash of up to 1 million terabytes (one exabyte) per day.

We are all on the drone's camera's!

Well...I guess with that capability...crime should go down.

Just what exactly do you think these drone's are really for?

Nothing is hidden anymore. And while some might think this is a great way to prevent many bad things that might happen... History shows us that prosecutions become entirely political. It's not about stopping every crime, it's about just going after certain ones, and letting certain people slip by freely.

So...with the way these drones can spy on humanity...well...let's say a person is in their apartment or house; doing whatever; and the blinds and/or curtains are open...can the drones look into peoples homes too...and snap their images? Do you think they may be used for this purpose by TPTB?

Anyone have any info on that "Solar Eagle" they mentioned in the video? Did some searches on Google but didn't come up with much

Found a link here relating to the SolarEagle. Looks like a high endurance high altitude UAV.

"SolarEagle is a uniquely configured, large unmanned aircraft designed to eventually remain on station at stratospheric altitudes for at least five years,"
On topic: This sensor, according to wiki, uses four lenses and *368* 5MP cell phone cameras.
