(2/6) Question: In an evolving battlefield with cheap, ubiquitous #Drones, camera systems and real-time satellite imagery, does the traditional UK doctrine of '#Recce by #stealth' still have value?

Weitere Eindrücke zur industriellen #Fleisch-Produktion im Kontext eines Hauptseminars: Ein Thread zu e. "Visitor's Guide" d. Firma #Swift im Chicago d. frühen 20. Jhd.s & zu Fleisch, Advertising & Gender. - Um 1900, als dt. Besucher (u. a. Max Weber) nach #Chicago strömen /1 Image
ist der Vieh- & Schlachthof (#UnionStockyard) eine gewaltige Attraktion: Ca. 500.000 Besucher kommen jährlich, schreibt Dominic A. #Pacyga i. #Slaughterhouse. Hier konnte man die "basic themes of modern industrialization" (ebd.) sehen. Die großen #Meatpacking-Firmen /2

Die sprachlich starken & scharfsichtigen, heute tls. aber toxisch wirkenden Reportagen v. #HeinrichHauser (1901-1955) sind wie ein Strudel: Man wird i. d. 1920/30er Jahren eingesaugt & endet in d. Gegenwart. Längerer Thread zu Hauser, #Fleisch & den #Schlachthöfen v. #Chicago. /1
Wie andere Autoren d. #Avantgarde feiert Hauser die Möglichkeiten d. fossilen Zeitalters noch vor d. "great acceleration" nach 1945 (Steffen/Crutzen/McNeill 2007). Es geht nicht bloß um Großstädte, Automobile o. Flugzeuge: 1931 besucht er d. Schlachthöfe v. #Armour & Company /2
in #Chicago. Aus seiner Sicht ist es ein Routinetermin, dessen Notwendigkeit wohl auf Upton #Sinclairs #TheJungle (1906) zurückgeht. Interessant ist, wie bei Hauser d. Zusammenhang v. Industrialisierung, Mechanisierung, steigendem Wohlstand, Fleischkonsum & Rassismus sichtbar /3

Israel is looking at unmanned armoured vehicles through its Carmel program. Developments are likely to feed into other AFVs already in service and provide a marker for other nations to gauge progress. #armour #tank #AI
The key will be ensuring responsiveness. Russia has reportedly trialled UGVs in urban situations alongside conventional forces. The operators struggled to fully appraise the battlefield and respond to situations in time. Not quite as easy as call of duty it seems
Another consideration will be cyber security - while likely to be controlled via a secure network these vehicles will need main mission computers that could be accessed during routine maintenance or through USB-style attacks. Ie the attack carried out on Iran #cybersecurity
