I tried to create a new thread but for some reason the page is just blank. I just signed up after reading from a different site that a company I
worked for is involved with Boundless Informant....in fact the company seems to be a major player.
I am sorry if this is off topic...I just posted it in the first NSA thread I could find.
The company name was DRTI(Digital Receiver Technology Incorporated), formerly known as Utica. They made these products called DirtBoxes (DRTBOX) that
sit there and collect phone call data. They are called Dirtboxes because "they collect dirt on people."
I was an intern there and they did something I felt very uncomfortable with. They had something called "product training" where a racist (very hateful
towards Middle East) army guy briefly explained how the product worked (I should have listened closer to this). After this, they had us learn to use
DRTBOX used a program called Alaska which was the interface where you can literally see hundreds of active phone calls in a list(probably anything
from nearest tower). You double click a phone call and can instantly hear one end of a cellular conversation.
The army guy told us to play around with the software.....essentially a group of 40 interns was told to randomly conduct illegal cell surveillance on
live phone calls. I know they were live because we were told they were live and also the people we listened to were talking about a bad storm that was
occurring at that moment.
The company DRTI was sold to Boeing a few years ago and a new company has been formed. If there is interest in information on the new company, I can
tell more via private messaging.
I am kind of amazed that I worked for a company that sold NSA the devices they use to conduct this illegal worldwide surveillance.
In this area alone are at least 2 other companies that now build the exact same equipment. URS and Thales are ones I know of.
People need to be aware of the fact that there are many people and companies out there that are cooperating with and helping the NSA right under your
