    why dont they use that camera for something useful like turning it towards space so we can get some hi-def moon shots, etc. Quit harrassing us please -we have so little as it is. leave us poor people alone.

  2. Sab_Normal on December 24, 2020 at 10:10 pm

    And of course the manufacturer is Greek like many great scientists in NASA!!!

  3. Thomasio on December 24, 2020 at 10:13 pm

    Wait so normal people walking around a western city have a chance to be marked by a drone?

  4. Saddoge on December 24, 2020 at 10:13 pm

    0:23 – "23 civilians die, in part because of limitations on the sensors"

    A sniper shoots and kills someone that the sniper wasn’t suppose to.

    "Shit sorry dirt on my scope lens, I was limited"

    haha, i love how the director choose to lit the interviewee from under the chin angel so they look hilariously evil-sh! @1:31

    this is terrifying because this is what they are willing to show, imagine what they are keeping locked away behind closed doors for "safety".

  7. Stroh Berry on December 24, 2020 at 10:16 pm

    1:30 "We’re not allowed to show you"

    4:08 "If you were to 368 of these and make a mosaic, you have Argus"

    WTF? Teach us how to make it, but don’t show us it?

  8. Devin the HIGH-RISH on December 24, 2020 at 10:17 pm

    well this is fuckin scary lol now when im takin a piss outside i know what the extra shake is for YOUR WELCOME ARGUS by the way you owe me money for my dick picks or im tellin the fine bros this was a review

  9. Ganjaseed on December 24, 2020 at 10:21 pm

    This is the most bullshit I have seen this week.

    First off, those civilians weren’t killed because the operator was not sure what they were carrying. Bad intel can’t be blamed for the wrong policy, or are we expected to believe that they prior don’t know whats on the ground and are only phishing with cameras for people with weapons wich they then kill?

    And then we see this ARGUS footage, STILL not sharp enough to see what a person is carrying as we can see by the dude flailing his arms…but now we have unsharp images of a whole area with possibly 1000s of civilians wich might or might not carry a weapon..

    Most shocking, this footage was obviously shot in US territory, mass, unwarranted surveilance of the US population over several days, all recorded and archived!

  10. Aj H on December 24, 2020 at 10:22 pm

    "23 civilians died in part because of limitations of the sensors"

    More like someone said "i dont know, but fuck it, just fire and we’ll find out later"
    The sensors were not even at fault partly. Human intervention and ignorance caused those deaths, nothing more. FUCKING PATHETIC

  11. walkin dude on December 24, 2020 at 10:23 pm

    did he say 1 million terabytes a day?

  12. chase like the bank on December 24, 2020 at 10:25 pm

    This is bullshit. 1984 here we come.

  13. Anonymityisdead1984 on December 24, 2020 at 10:26 pm

    If we don’t do something about the economic parasites that own much of the world, they are going to use technologies like these to make sure we can never escape their economic parasitism. This is a point in history where we either stop them or they become our masters and we are enslaved forever. It looks like we’re getting the latter at this point in time as we acquiesce to surveillance and they consolidate economic and legal power over the masses globally.

  14. BloodTar on December 24, 2020 at 10:27 pm

    The true enemy to our privacy.

  15. Theokondak on December 24, 2020 at 10:28 pm

    Defencenet εννοείς….είδες το άρθρο, έκανες κλικ πάνω στο video και ήρθες…σπουδαίο πράγμα…

  16. blue280485 on December 24, 2020 at 10:28 pm

    Wow amazing tech! What if you take ARGUS and put it on Hubble Space Telescope & point it at an Area-Of-Interest in Space like a Galaxy, imagine what would we be able to see😲🤔

  17. Kay Jay on December 24, 2020 at 10:31 pm

    The thing that won’t help us but then. Will end up harming us wirh the technology Russia has and had since Hitler.

    What a way to form distrust!

    Cell phones, tv’s, glasses, contacts, human chipping isn’t enough we want more more more. This will be the fall of this nation. As it had already began.

  18. Aurinkohirvi on December 24, 2020 at 10:34 pm

    Them bastards! Shoot them down!

  19. Kay Jay on December 24, 2020 at 10:34 pm

    See it’s unconstitutional. This doesn’t help me stay safe.
    I told you it’s like a swap. .. we complain about one thing only for that to be cut down or eliminated and another thing in it’s place. You can change the name of the program 1 million times and the effects would be the sane each time.
    It’s unconstitutional and judges know this. But it’s a huge pay day for the private sector.

  20. opisex on December 24, 2020 at 10:34 pm

    so basically put one of these up over a city and you can track every single person and vehicles movements 24/7..

    Oh yay happy days, you can stalk an entire city at once.

  21. ficktao on December 24, 2020 at 10:36 pm

    So, this is being used, not just in war zones, but everywhere. I know I don’t want that, do you?

  22. 70174A on December 24, 2020 at 10:37 pm

    but can they see why kids love cinnamon toast crunch?

  23. Andrew Chason on December 24, 2020 at 10:38 pm

    This shows a cool new imaging sensor… but it still can’t answer the question at the start of the video. Not high enough resolution or close enough zoom to tell, "is that a gun"? Who cares, just blow em to hell. :/ How much is this going to cost the taxpayer?

  24. Jamie Boy on December 24, 2020 at 10:38 pm

    There is no way to run or hide in any part of the world with these suicide unmaned aircraft with nuc bombs smart bombs worth 2.1 billion ea

  25. Teedy247 on December 24, 2020 at 10:39 pm

    They have really gotten this tracking stuff down to a precise science … did he say they can’t show us ARGUS? … Clearly there’s a sinister plan ahead … I’m sure there is much more they are not showing us…

  26. willy94501 on December 24, 2020 at 10:42 pm

    Awesome! I can’t wait to own my very own drone.

  27. troy wilson on December 24, 2020 at 10:42 pm

    Welcome to the machine!..1984..big brother is watching you

  28. Ron Angel on December 24, 2020 at 10:42 pm

    It all can be stopped by one round from a high powered rifle.will even see the flash that killed it.(grin)

  29. the real deal on December 24, 2020 at 10:42 pm

    the camera is in the camera

  30. CarolineB on December 24, 2020 at 10:43 pm

    Big brother is watching…

  31. georgeF22 on December 24, 2020 at 10:45 pm

    Greek designer !!!! WoW mpravo ston kyrio afou den mporese na kanei to pa9os t pragmatikothta sthn anuparkth ellada kala ekane kai efuge euge !!!

  32. opisex on December 24, 2020 at 10:45 pm

    if they can track every person and vehicle and see objects 6 inches long how do you plan to do that and get away with it?

    It’ll be like every person having their own film crew following them around.

  33. opisex on December 24, 2020 at 10:45 pm

    Im more worried about societies acceptance.. not only will it eventually make its way to the drones the PD’s want to start using but the people will cheer for it, demand it even.

  34. RelatedGiraffe on December 24, 2020 at 10:46 pm

    0:30 The narrator seems so enthusiastic: "Engineers are working to create new sensors that can see more in greater detail than ever before". Oh great. So now we are only going to shoot down civilian aircraft half as often.

    Storing 1,000,000 TB of video a day (3:12). That can’t be right.

  43. Mihaylo Dimo on December 24, 2020 at 10:55 pm

    I’m sorry but those 23 civilians haven’t been killed because lack of tech…. pleople are always making excuses to continue investing into military technology.
