Scour Google Earth for Rapid Deploy Drone Bases

Posted    |    Rating: not yet rated

Not related to the Army drone base a short distance away, the CIA and Niger confirm to the New York Times (we’re web-only subscribed through mid-2019) the development of this Niger-located drone base in the Sahara Desert.

Just a passing yellow carnation of techxiety to fuel some thoughts for the day.

You can use the video to train yourself and sift through a handful of sites and articles dedicated to the topic. And, to better prepare yourself for a future of remote executions, espionage and tomfoolery, you could also play more video games, learn to write data to memory chips ( primer ) and how to disable comms in your general vicinity.

The quick setup of such infrastructure and slow updates of satellite data in many portions of Google Earth make this task a big challenge no matter the vigilance. There’s no guarantee of any dystopic outcome but identifying bases and becoming familiar with what’s happening where can only keep you sharp; sharp against whom or what? how should I know? But in this context, sharp is good nonetheless.

It’s not paranoia if it’s tech. We said that. It’s not always true if you find it online but it’s a heck of a mental exercise to imagine the benefits and risks of just what’s possible even if today’s technology is on the clunky side; that only means the proof-of-concepts are still justifying cheaper, smaller mass production.
