    A sinister airborne surveillance camera gives the U.S. military the ability to track movements in an entire city like a real-time Google Street View. The ARGUS-IS array can be mounted on unmanned drones to capture an area of 15 sq/miles in an incredible 1,800MP - that's 225 times more sensitive than an iPhone camera. From 17,500ft the remarkable surveillance system can capture objects as small as 6in on the ground and allows commanders to track movements across an entire battlefield in real time.

    The Autonomous Real-time Ground Ubiquitous Surveillance-Imaging System (ARGUS-IS) program is developing a real-time, high-resolution, wide-area video surveillance system that provides the warfighter a minimum of 65 VGA video windows across the field of view. Each video window is electronically steerable independent of the others, and can either provide continuous imagery of a fixed area on the ground or be designated to automatically keep a specified target (dismount or vehicle) in the window.

    Argus One airship, U.S. military drone Drones and satellites dominate the U.S. military's surveillance arsenal, but fleets of unmanned airships could soon join in keeping an eye on battlefields. One robotic airship contender, the modular Argus One, has upcoming flight demonstrations scheduled at a U.S. Department of Energy Nevada Test Site that hosted nuclear bomb tests during the Cold War. The Argus One's design resembles a segmented sky worm made of connecting modules, and has the flexibility to quickly change its flight path as it slinks through the sky. It can also carry 30 pounds of surveillance sensors or...

    WASHINGTON (Talon News) -- After two weeks of stonewalling, Randell Beck, Executive Editor of South Dakota's largest newspaper, the Argus Leader, finally acknowledged the relationship of its political reporter to Sen.

Kranz and the Argus Leader have been at the center of a controversy that began when potential Senate candidate Neal Tapio revealed the ties in a press release. Tapio implied that the newspaper's reporting has been excessively favorable...

    WASHINGTON (Talon News) -- The ethical saga surrounding South Dakota's largest newspaper took another turn away from resolution as spokespersons for Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle (D-SD) ignored calls to clarify the relationship between their boss and the political reporter of the homestate newspaper, the Argus Leader. Calls from Talon News to Steve Hildebrand, manager for Daschle's re-election campaign and Steve Erpenbach, Daschle's State Director were not returned yesterday. A Sioux Falls businessman touched off the controversy last week when he called for the Argus Leader to disclose the relationship between its political reporter David Kranz and Sen. Daschle that...

    <p>Nobody would eat half-baked bread, but that's just what the media served up when they ran stories about advertisements calling Sen. Tom Daschle to account for his voting record.</p> <p>Not one ad had aired. Not one produced. Not one funded. Nor had it been decided how best to expose Daschle's liberalism. But that didn't stop the media from reporting erroneous stories based on stolen working documents for possible future advertising campaigns.</p>
