DARPA, the R&D division of the United States Department of Defense, is looking to develop a new kind of 3D surveillance system.

DARPA, the R&D division of the United States Department of Defense, is looking to develop a new kind of 3D surveillance system. Existing 3D spy technology is said to be bulky and limited, and DARPA wants to push the technological limits for this next generation of manned and unmanned 3D footage capturing devices.

Wired reports:

The agency wants proposals that start from scratch, using a fundamentally new model for obtaining video footage. The 3-D surveillance should be able to monitor moving targets with high resolution, from different ranges, and without the need for users to do much legwork, like scanning or refocusing on a target. Darpa anticipates that 3-D surveillance would boost field of vision and depth of vision “by over 100X” compared to existing systems.
