New Government Spy Satellite Can Watch 40-Percent of the World at One Time

Subscribe to KLAQ El Paso on

The Department of Defense has designed the epitome of Big Brother technology: a super invasive spy telescope capable of watching 40-percent of the Earth simultaneously.

The satellite that is being called the Membrane Optical Imager for Real-Time Exploitation (MOIRE) was designed by DARPA, the Pentagon agency commissioned to create the next level of kill mode military weaponry.

According to reports, the MOIRE telescope is the most advanced spy satellite to ever be sent into space, and its technology could serve as a benchmark for increasing the power and accuracy of space telescopes from this point forward.

The latest technological advancements of MOIRE operate using expandable membranes as thick as household kitchen wrap that will diffract light instead of reflecting it.

“Membrane optics could enable us to fit much larger, higher-resolution telescopes in smaller and lighter packages,” said program manager Lieutenant Colonel Larry Gunn. “In that respect, we’re “breaking the glass ceiling” that traditional materials impose on optics design.”

DARPA has confirmed that a ground –based prototype has already been tested, and now the satellite is said to be in the final stages of completion.
