    Can Global Surveillance Be Crowd-Sourced?

    A test this summer in the Baltic Sea east of Stockholm will begin to define the future for the exponentially growing, crowd-sourced, global surveillance network that goes by the name of Flightradar24.

    the test will look at the performance of ADS-B receivers attached to buoys, a relatively low-cost solution the company could fund on its own. If successful, the test could lead to fleets of buoys in captive locations throughout the oceans or left to slowly free-float on the currents between continents. Other technologies under consideration include balloons and space-based receivers.

    company has a “very, very long road map” for new features for both the apps and the web pages, as well as “quite a big update” for the Web in April; there will be four different premium levels.
