Eyes in the Sky: The Secret Rise of Gorgon Stare and How It Will Watch Us All is an authoritative account of a surveillance system built by the Pentagon that can track 1,000 moving targets simultaneously. Using a technology called WAMI (Wide Area Motion imagery) and powerful Big Data analytics, Gorgon Stare has been used in combat zones and, secretly, over some American cities.
Drawing on sources within the Pentagon and companies that developed WAMI, the author narrates how this Orwellian-scale surveillance system was created and what businesses and police forces that have seen it in action are rushing to get their hands on it. Your elected officials don’t even know anything about it. It’s a must read.
Eyes in the Sky will be published on June 18, 2019, and as an attendee, you’ll receive a free copy during registration on June 27 or June 28. You might even be able to chat with the author in person and get your copy signed.
