China tests swarm of ‘suicide drones’ launched from a truck and helicopters

Everyday the novel Ghost Fleet written in 2015 by PW Singer is becoming a daily reality.

SCARY.

Insider says the small fixed-wing unmanned aircraft was commissioned under Beijing’s military-civilian fusion strategy

He doesn’t give details of the aircraft, but they appear to be similar to the country’s first tactical attack drone, according to video footage

China has developed a new low-cost “suicide drone” that is despatched in a swarm to attack a target, according to mainland media reports.It was commissioned as part of the government’s military-civilian fusion strategy, a People’s Liberation Army insider who requested anonymity told the South China Morning Post. The policy seeks to boost military development with civilian and private sector support.

A swarm of the fixed-wing unmanned aerial vehicles was tested last month by the developer, a research institute under state-owned China Electronics Technology Group Corporation, according to a video released by the company.

The Surveillance State: DIVA Software

From the Archives, 2016.

When Martial Law begins steam-rolling in these larger cities across the CONUS, this is just one of the tools Uncle Sam will unleash to either arrest or plant “protesters” (ie Domestic Terrorist).

Considering how technology like this grows and sharpens itself exponentially, it would behoove the martial citizen to consider how something like this can be abused and in turn, circumvented when the time comes.

DIVA

The program is called Deep Intermodal Video Analytics—or DIVA—and it seeks to locate shooters and terrorists before they strike.

The intelligence community is working on amping up people-recognition power to spot, in live videos, shooters and potential terrorists before they have a chance to attack.

Part of the problem with current video surveillance techniques is the difficulty of recognizing objects and people, simultaneously, in real-time.

But Deep Intermodal Video Analytics, or DIVA, a research project out of the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, will attempt to automatically detect suspicious activities, with the help of live video pouring in through multiple camera feeds.

ODNI’s Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Agency is gathering academics and private sector experts for a July 12 “Proposers’ Day,” in anticipation of releasing a work solicitation.

“The DIVA program will produce a common framework and software prototype for activity detection, person/object detection and recognition across a multicamera network,”IARPA officials said in a synopsis of the project published June 3. “The impact will be the development of tools for forensic analysis, as well as real-time alerting for user-defined threat scenarios.”

In other words, the tech would scour incoming video surveillance and body-camera imagery from areas of interest for people and objects who could present a threat, or individuals and items that might have been involved in a past crime.

This is the type of video-recognition system that might have been used for identifying would-be suicide bombers before the Paris and Brussels attacks, some video analytics experts say.

Privacy laws in the United States and Europe differ, so it is unclear whether such activity-recognition software would have been legal to use on video around the time of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings. Nextgov has contacted ODNI for comment.

China updates its ‘Art of (Hybrid) War’

China updates its ‘Art of (Hybrid) War’

 

I have emphasized the importance of understanding 4GW, aka “Hybrid” or “Asymmetrical” Warfare for some time on this blog.

Understanding how War can be waged in every strata of society without a bullet ever being fired is mind blowing to some but none the less a painful reality in the 21st Century.

Pandemic Drones?

Connecticut police to test ‘pandemic drone’ that monitors health of residents

I have never been much of a conspiracy Nut, but it has become obvious that Government (both Local, State and Federal) are taking FULL advantage of the Corona pandemic (and the FEAR that goes with it) to “up the ante” on civilian surveillance around the globe.

They did the same thing after 9/11 with the Patriot Act, remember?

Understand, the key ingredient in both of these scenarios is FEAR.

When People are scared and uncertain they are more likely to trade their RIGHTS and their FREEDOMS for so-called “Security Measures.”

You gotta ask yourself what’s next?

Implanted ID Chips so you can be located and monitored 24/7?

Yeah, it’s already under way.
