New technology to aid military surveillance | |

New technology to aid military surveillance | | "The military is about to launch a new technology that it says will dramatically improve the way troops in Afghanistan use massive stores of video surveillance footage collected around the clock in combat zones.
Dubbed 'Valiant Angel,' the new capability employs several advances already in use in the civilian world by TV broadcasters and Google. It's made up of a system of computer servers that will allow the military to store far more photographs and video footage than before, as well as software that will give intelligence analysts and troops in the field far greater access to the footage."
