The Air Force has touted the ARGUS-IS as the next generation for sensor technology. This sensor so advanced it has Air Force leaders worried that their intelligence analysts don’t have the tools to consume and utilize all the data it consumes.
Air Force officials have reached out to sports broadcast companies and reality television producers to figure out how to work with so many data feeds.

The ARGUS-IS can stream up to a million terabytes of data and record 5,000 hours of HD footage per day. It can do this by the 1.8 gigapixel camera and 368 different sensors all housed in the ARGUS-IS.
Air Force intelligence aircraft, drones and manned planes, carry the sensor up to 20,000 feet up and can spot specific features of individuals down to the color of their clothes.
