62 mile diameter, so the rest of the planet goes unwatched?

This is DARPA looking to spend money.

That’s over 3000 square miles. And it moves...

There has to be something more to it. We had satellites 30+ years ago that could read the logo on a bottle cap. I’ve always thought they would come up with a way to bend light waves via color bands? and radio signals?, so a satellite could beam down to ground and at eye level, look at objects horizontally not just vertically.
Does seem like an awful fragile array though... one speck of space debris and ..poof!? How I wish I were back as a fly on the wall in the Intel community...Having been there at one time, I know there are some mind blowing things going.
