The Pillar of Defense Monitor has morphed into a widescreen Israel Monitor now that a ceasefire has taken hold – for now. This monitor tracks discussions about the Israeli government, defense forces, air power (including drones), missile defense systems, intelligence community, Hezbollah, and of course the Palestinians. It is guaranteed to never lack for content.

Mali Monitors Updated

 
Intervention is almost inevitable and the two Mali-focused monitors have been update to reflect this. The three column Mali Monitor is tracking the Malian government, Islamists, and discussions about foreign intervention.

The seven column widescreen monitor is tracking any mention of Mali, ECOWAS, AFRICOM, Islamists, the involvement of specific European countries, drone activity, and discussions about intervention. Of course, these could change over time but they’re tracking the story well right now.

Experimental: Drone Observation Streams

A new “Experimental” section has been added for subscribers. Monitors added to this new section are (as described) experimental and may not have an ideal signal to noise ratio. The first experimental monitor is looking for firsthand accounts of drone activity. There is a significant amount of noise in these streams but the occasional gem will surface. Hopefully, as searches are refined or activity gets better organized, the ability to track these reports will improve.

Iranian Weapons and Drones Monitor

Iranian weapons continue to find their way into the hands terrorists and other rogue states whether it’s alleged an missile factory in Sudan or drones in the hands of Hezbollah. The sheer numbers of weapons involved and their increasing killing power is turning this into a very serious problem. Today’s low intensity conflict could develop into something extremely intense if (ok, when) a larger war breaks out in the region.

With this is mind we’ve rolled out a new Iranian Weapons Monitor that tracks Iranian missiles and conventional weapons, Iranian drones, Iranian-made Hezbollah drones, and discussions about new Iranian weapon announcements. Subscribers will find it in their Topics menu.

Covert Contact - Live Streaming Social Media Intelligence - Drones

Drones are a hotly debated topic and the Covert Contact Drone Monitor captures a lot of that debate. This monitor tracks general discussions about drones, issues related to drone surveillance, and discussions about drone strikes. The “Drone Strikes” live stream is one of our favorites – it’s always surfacing something interesting.
