ARGUS-IS: 18 Giga-pixel Spy Camera

BAE Systems and DARPA have developed an insane camera called the Autonomous Real-Time Ground Ubiquitous Surveillance Imaging System (catchy).  It’s basically a huge camera strapped to the bottom of a drone that takes (very) high quality video whilst analysing it for vehicle movement and even individual people.  This is all done in real time whilst the Boeing A160 Hummingbird is hovering at 17500 feet, even birds can been seen flying around!
