HT4Sight Plugs Aerial Surveillance Video Into Any Cellphone

Illustration for article titled HT4Sight Plugs Aerial Surveillance Video Into Any Cellphone

HT4Sight seems like something only available to rogue agents who break people's legs and shout out their lungs every time they want to know where a nuclear head is, while nobody—except a hacker with permanent PMS—believes in them.


Except that HT4Sight is real, and available to anyone with deep enough pockets. The system allows anyone to route video signals from UAVs—or any aerial surveillance craft or satellite—to any cellphone around the world, using an encrypted data signal. The signal gets transmitted in real time to a command center. Then, HT4Sight compresses and encrypts the video, sending the stream to any phone in a cellular, Wi-Fi, or satellite network.
