FLYEYE

As I recall, the Flyeye guys were making some pretty impressive performance claims when this was first announced. It will be interesting to see if they achieve them.

Oddly, I recall the whole system being described as automatic rather than human assisted, but I could easily be wrong. Human intervention would certainly make high sensitivity performance more attainable.
