You can never get enough ISR in today’s battlespace. Large portions of military budgets are expended to improve ISR. The commercial space has not gone unnoticed by hardware and software developers and as a result consumers can develop their own Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities that as far back as 5 years would have turn the law enforcement community green with envy.
Later this month, I’ll introduce you to building your own capabilities using a smart device and S4 Gear’s ZOOM SVS Smartphone Digiscoping Mount. The mount isn’t perfect and there are areas where improvements are needed but overall it will get the ball rolling for you.
Capabilities are further enhanced when combined with time lapsed georeferenced imaging, and I’ll tell you about a couple of excellent apps that will do just that. Combining all of the individual attributes in a 3G environment and you have the makings of a rather formidable system.
