Closed Circuit TV and Data Confluence Qinetiq
is bringing their CCTV
confluence technology, codenamed Praetorian
, to the UK. "The system automatically tracks and stitches 3D images with CCTV video, maps and other real-time information. It automatically alerts operators to intruders, unusual behaviour, left objects or anything it is told to spot." And it looks more like a video game than a video feed. This new tech is perhaps not as controversial
as Qinetiq's Millimetre Wave Imaging System
that allows passive scanning through clothing
to detect guns, knives or bombs.
Yes, it is very Big Brother-esque but its also pretty amazing technology too.
Qinetiq previously discussed on MeFi here, here, here and here.

Advanced methods of bomb detection and investigation.
New equipment developed to scan cars and people, such as a parking lot device which quickly bathes the car's trunk in invisible neutrons, a procedure that makes materials inside the trunk emit gamma-rays
that would indicate the presence of explosives.
Also, a bomb disposal robot which take[s] fingerprints before blowing [a] package up
