It stamps out crop circles, too.
Is it Iranian proof?
“...a “micron-thin diffractive-optics membrane” to form a 65-foot super-thin lens...”
At a glance, it seems kind of fragile both in terms of resisting space junk (as well as anything purposely put in its path) and in holding its shape.
If you watch the ground, you don’t trip as much.
Will a laser aimed at the lens fry the components?
62 mile diameter, so the rest of the planet goes unwatched?
This is DARPA looking to spend money.
There`s a whole bunch of stained-glass windows full of HALOS in our church-
NASA coulda had it for free
Is this a kind of Fresnel lens?
Does it flush water like that stargate thing?
Landing in Iran intact soon ...

Up here in space
I’m looking down on you.
My lasers trace
Everything you do.
You think you’ve private lives
Think nothing of the kind.
There is no true escape
I’m watching all the time.
I’m made of metal
My circuits gleam.
I am perpetual
I keep the country clean.
I’m elected electric spy
I protected electric eye.
Always in focus
You can’t feel my stare.
I zoom into you
You don’t know I’m there.
I take a pride in probing all your secret moves
My tearless retina takes pictures that can prove.
Electric eye, in the sky
Feel my stare, always there
‘s nothing you can do about it.
Develop and expose
I feed upon your every thought
And so my power grows.
Protected. Detective. Electric eye.
And who is it watching? Iran? Israel? NYC? DC? Dolphins?
I wonder how many of these things they plan to watch us with.
The eyes in the sky never blink.
Proper orbit and mission design is the key.
It’s fun to see an old conversation in the hallway finally start to maybe work
It is far more important to have a shoot down capability than an observational capability, but it’s best to have both.
In this case, if a SCUD launch is anticipated, and the launch itself is observed, it should be possible for a high performance aircraft to shoot down the SCUD with a modified air-to-air missile. As importantly, it is a LOT cheaper to do things that way, and there are a LOT of air-to-air missiles, compared to surface to air anti-missiles.
