The Future of the Surveillance State

Future Combat Systems: US Army Aside from the high-quality of the advertising (is this propaganda?) film, I find the surveillance capabilities "interesting."

You have to give the video a few minutes to get going and get past the "human interest" section about medical support.

Applied to the battlefield is one thing, but what if this technology comes home? Are you ready for the Panopticon? Or is it less benign than that?
