JC Herz Tactical satalite (effectively Flickr for military satellite images)
Goal is for anyone in the military can access a tactical satellite (which is open) to see whatever they need. They can avoid going through the intelligence community to get information they need to do their job. About two dozen people coming together to build this satellite and system. Ability to zoom into a building and look around a room. Hard to describe the demos I saw aside from they were very impressive. Kind of like Keyhole on steroids.
