So, you ask, what’s in the box Jay’s holding in the aisle? Hell if I know. “SELEX Galileo, a Finmeccanica company, is today leading a demonstration of IMSK (Integrated Mobile Security Kit),” an published presser reveals (in its own special way), “a European Union project that enables security teams at highprofile events such as economic summits to deliver improved security through the provision of improved situational awareness.” Hope that helps. Rest assured, there is gun stuff here. “At the event new and novel technologies include a sniper detection system that spots threats before shots are fired by scanning for the reflection from a sniper scope (and which can also detect any other scope, such as high power camera lenses).” Who knew that Kate Middleton and this guy had so much in common?

  1. Right. ‘Cause we all know there isn’t a scope in the world that’s been treated with an anti-reflective coating on the business end.

  2. Just get an extended tube off your objective lens and you won’t be seen. And, as pointed out, a good set of peep sights renders the entire idea non-operational.

    This is yet another example of a company preying on the ignorance of political hacks and bureaucrats.

  3. Maybe someone will invent some kind of.. I dunno.. covering? One could drape over a scope to hide it? Some kind of… veil.. maybe?

    Prime example of things being built by people who don’t understand what they’re building.

  4. If Battlefield 3 has taught me anything, it’s that you can see a scope aimed at you from .25 light years away.

    Also, I’d be so friggin dead in combat.

  5. “provision of improved situational awareness” is the finest example of beauracratic gibbirsh I’ve run across since the last time I got my hands on some internal Houston Independent School District memos.
