“It’s Not Spying if They’re Always Watching.”

September 13, 2016

One Baltimore police sergeant, after viewing the capabilities of this “new” technology, exclaimed, “This is just overwhelming right here! This is amazing!”

Jay Stanley, a senior policy analyst and privacy expert for the ACLU in Washington, after a demonstration of the technology, said, “OK, this is it. This is where the rubber hits the road. The technology has finally arrived, and Big Brother, which everyone has always talked about, is finally here.”

They’re talking about a Dayton, Ohio company called Persistent Surveillance Systems, headed by an Air Force Academy graduate, physicist and aeronautical engineer named Ross McNutt. This MIT-trained engineer presented to the Pentagon, in 2006, his “Angel Fire” surveillance technology designed to discover who was planting road side bombs in Iraq. According to Bloomberg Businessweek of August 2016, Angel Fire is “a wide-area, live-feed surveillance system that could cast an unblinking eye on an entire city.” In it’s war applications, “more than merely identifying an enemy, the technology could identify an enemy network.”

In 2007, Angel Fire was upgraded and eventually led to a more enhanced system called “Blue Devil, which coupled wide-area cameras with narrow focus zoom lenses in the same package,” Bloomberg reports.

Today, McNutt is offering his aerial spy-in-the-sky technology to law enforcement agencies to cities like Baltimore who “need” extra help in solving crimes.
