ARGUS’s view is both wide and precise. It can cover areas of up to 38.8 square kilometres at a glance while still spotting objects as small as 15 centimetres around from heights of 5334 metres. ARGUS not only streams the footage to the ground live, but keeps a stash of video on board as well, a staggeringly massive stash of up to 1 million terabytes (one exabyte) per day.
Whether the ARGUS-IS is currently deployed right now is classified information, and likewise, we aren’t allowed to see exactly what it looks like either. But one thing is for sure: all-seeing eyes in the sky that never forget aren’t science fiction. They’re reality. And for all you know, they could be watching you.
