"Vantage point is everything when it comes to surveillance"

Recently I have noted various technologies proposed which will make it easier for the State to watch us on the road: herehere, here, and here.  In America, if the TSA's mission creep is not arrested -- see here,  here, here and here --, the nation's highways and streets may soon resemble automotive GULags, aided and abetted by these police state marvels.

Thanks to David Kramer's post at, here is yet another example: ICx Technologies SkyWatch "Manned Mobile Surveillance System".  (The manufacturer even assures us that it "is rugged enough to handle even the most primitive off-road conditions" too.  So don't try anything seditious in your Ford Raptor, Toyota Land Cruiser, or Range Rover!)
