Tactical Platforms popping up across America



Apparently, federal money purchased this, and many other mobile tactical platform and surveillance towers (named, “sky watch”) to watch American citizens, exemplified in this photo at a Walmart parking lot in Hickory, North Carolina. Evidently they have been popping up all over America during 2010.

The sky watch platforms are built by a company named “ICx Technologies” with headquarters in Arlington, Virginia, who themselves build products for the federal government, Homeland Security, Military, and other organizations. “ICx Tactical Platforms” apparently are located in Alpharetta, Georgia, where they specifically build the platform systems.

Business must be good… a quick web search results in what appears to be numerous job openings.

The sky watch tactical platform certainly presents an intimidating presence, one that is jarring to the notion of a free America. They have been spotted at public gatherings, concerts, parks, parking lots, shopping centers, places where Americans normally go about their daily lives, be it entertainment, relaxation, travel, or shopping.

Why are these surveillance platforms being purchased and deployed around America?

It’s anyone’s guess… but obviously it is for surveillance. But one might ask, for whom? Are “they” looking for criminals? thieves? (no doubt that it is effective in this area), terrorists? perhaps to de-sensitize the American public to the presence of public monitoring? (or is that tin-foil hat conspiracy?) It certainly is a different America now.

Here are a few photos of the tactical platform product, followed by a YouTube video of someone interacting with a platform at Walmart.
