27 Jun China to Use “Fake Birds” for Increased Surveillance
China is reportedly developing drones which look like birds in an effort to increase the government’s public surveillance powers.
The South China Morning Post reported that the government’s program, codenamed “Dove”, will be using small drones that are designed to fly like birds. The drones, which will be able to fly as fast as 40 km/h, will be fitted with wings measuring 50 cm long, HD camera, GPS, flight control system, and satellite communications systems.
However, it is said that China is not the first to come up with such a project as companies in US and Europe were the first ones to sell similar technology to the militaries of their countries.
