31 Jul Tech Company Palantir Employs Advanced Sweeping Special-Ops Surveillance
Earlier this week, CIA-supported defense startup Palantir discussed how its state-of-the-art surveillance system uses pre-crime operations to lock down on suspects even before an offense is committed.
Sources say the elusive defense operation does not have an office, but is running covertly in a sensitive compartmentalized information facility (SCIF) located in Palo Alto, California.
Palantir is reported to have secured intelligence capabilities that watches and accurately predicts a target’s next move for authorities to intercept. Since 2013, its list of clients includes the FBI, NSA, CIA, Marine Corps, and the Air Force.
However, a vast trove of intelligence data only fortifies existing prejudices. Critics say it’s calculations are based on biases targeting individuals for crimes they haven’t committed, which are unproven acts that a person could actually not do.
To date, Palantir runs stealth monitoring operations and is considered just as wide-reaching as tech giants Google, Apple, and Microsoft.
