Awesome background info. More if you have it.
You know that of course this capability will be heralded as a "must have" information grab for people in metro areas with apps written to use the
civilian accessible portion of the data.
It is frightening to think that this level of control by the government is on the way. Truth be told, though, it's already here if not to the same
degree of accuracy that these aerostats would provide.
As an aside, think of the good uses of these things being able to provide extremely accurate location info for navigation devices. We wouldn't be
using satellite technology and when our maps in our cars, or commercial buses was updated (there was a horrible crash in Boston where nearly 40
students from out of state were driven in to a bridge too short for their bus by the driver. All were hospitalized.)...we would be able to know where
we are within feet or inches.
Technology is a double bladed sword. Always has been, always will be. Decide which way you want it to cut for you.
