After Afghanistan: Exelis Adapts Surveillance System For Use In Domestic Law Enforcement, Border Security - Forbes

Law and Order: Keeney Road resident accused of grand larceny | The Batavian

(Photo credit: Wikipedia) Exelis is the federal contracting component of ITT Industries that was spun off in late 2011; once it completes its own spinoff of a technical services business this year, the company will have 10,000 employees and about $3 billion in revenues. Senior management is reorienting the companys extensive technology franchises to address a wider array of markets, and CorvusEye 1500 is one example of how it hopes to proceed. Like another airborne sensor the geospatial systems unit recently tested that can remotely detect explosives and dangerous chemicals, CorvusEye 1500 seeks to use advanced military technology in addressing civil and commercial markets by making it more affordable. So whereas a single Gorgon Stare system might weigh 400 pounds, CorvusEye 1500 weighs only 83, and therein a corresponding reduction in cost. Exelis executives liken the compression of technologies necessary to fashion a more compact sensor to packing an SUV-size cargo into a compact car such as a Mini. The end system has to take up much less space, and yet it retains many of the original requirements for stability, resolution, versatility and reliability. You cant compromise much on items like stabilization, because a minor jitter problem in the air translates into major discrepancies in what can be viewed at ground level. Exelis executives presumably chose the name CorvusEye not just because of the birds-eye view the system provides, but also because crows are highly intelligent (their brain-to-body ratio is similar to that of apes). In that regard, CorvusEye should not be thought of as just a highly versatile sensor, but as the front-end of a surveillance architecture that includes a network and ground stations that process, analyze and disseminate imagery.

Citations, Left Lane Driving & The Law In Texas « CBS Dallas / Fort Worth

Amber Colichia, an officer with the Hurst Police Department, told CBS 11 News that in all of her four years as a traffic cop she has never ticketed anyone for driving slow in left lane. Its rare, she said. What happens is that people are going at speed limit, whatever is posted and most people around them are going a lot faster than them. That may be true.
