The Greek Who Can Spy On Earth

antoniadis-630x420Yiannis Antoniades, a director at BAE Systems, a British multinational defense, security and aerospace company, has designed a system that create an eye-in-the-sky-spy to see almost anything on the planet.

His work produced the ARGUS-IS or the Autonomous Real-Time Ground Ubiquitous Surveillance Imaging System, a Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) project.

According to DARPA, the mission of ARGUS-IS program is to provide military users a flexible and responsive capability to find, track and monitor events and activities of interest on a continuous basis in areas of interest.

The overall objective is to increase situational awareness and understanding enabling an ability to find and fix critical events in a large area in enough time to influence events. ARGUS – IS provides military users an “eyes-on” persistent wide area surveillance capability to support tactical users in a dynamic battle space or urban environment.

This innovative program consits of a big number of high definition cameras which cover almost 50 square kilometers of territory from a height of 17,500 feet.

The image can be divided in at least 65 windows from which the user can observe in real time and in detail the movements of passer-by and vehicles. The Boeing A160 Hummingbird was to eventually be used as a platform for the airborne video sensor and processor.
