Just had a weird dream while taking an afternoon nap.
I dreamt that in addition to recording huge swaths of information for later analysis, the “Gorgon Stare” program was streamed live on an XBoX or similar platform, and the at-home audience would nominate targets for engagement. A simple algorithm would alert the actual operators of the drone that multiple members of the audience were nominating a certain sector for targeting. A quick review, and the operator could enable the engagement. Viola, instant real-time analysis of streaming imagery.
- Data still recorded for later analysis
- Still provides the troops on the ground a “birds-eye” view of the battlefield
- Many sets of eyes watching to “average out” errors in analysis
What do you think?
