Introducing the Widescreen Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan Monitor

Covert Contact - Live Streaming Social Media Intelligence - Jodan Widescreen Monitor

Jordan has some serious challenges ahead. It is struggling with growing internal unrest, dangerous radical elements, and conflict on its borders. All of this makes it worthy of a comprehensive widescreen monitor.

This monitor is tracking mentions of Jordan and Amman, discussions about the government and royal family, the Jordanian military and security forces, Jordanian intelligence, radical elements inside the country, issues related to Syria (both the government and rebels) and Iran, and incidents of violence and protest.

Subscriptions to Covert Contact’s array of hundreds of global security live streams are available for only $10 per month.

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.

Monitoring the Israeli-Iranian Conflict – First Strikes, Iranian Missiles, and War

Covert Contact - Live Streaming Social Media Intelligence - Iranian-Israeli Conflict

Media reports and Israeli government officials have been leaking, hinting, warning, and sometimes screaming about an “imminent” strike on Iran for as long as we can remember but the talk has grown a bit more serious in recent days:

Israeli leaders, who have long issued veiled threats against Iran, now appear to be preparing the country for war. New gas mask distribution centers have opened, a nationwide missile alert system has been tested and an official this week warned of hundreds of casualties if Israel unilaterally strikes Iran.

The heightened rhetoric has fueled jitters that the zero hour is near. But there are also growing signs of discontent with the government’s approach, with critics accusing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his defense minister, Ehud Barak, of recklessly plunging Israel into an unprecedented missile war.

With this in mind we’ve rolled out an Iranian-Israeli Conflict Monitor on subscriber’s “Topics” menu. This monitor looks at the Iranian missile threat from the Israeli perspective, talk of an Israeli first strike, and general discussion about war between the two countries.

Monitoring Saudi Intelligence Chief Prince Bandar bin Sultan

Depending on who you read Prince Bandar has either been assassinated in some joint Syrian-Iranian operation or he’s personally orchestrating the war in Syria from an underground bunker – with Kim Kardashian at his side.

Rumors about the Prince are flying and facts are pretty scarce so take what you see on this monitor with a grain of salt. Accurate information may be difficult to come by but speculation is plentiful and often pretty interesting.

This monitor tracks mentions of Prince Bandar, discussions about Saudi Intelligence, and discussions about Syria-Saudi connections. Subscribers will find the Prince Bandar Monitor on their “People” menu. Enjoy!

The Mother of All Syria Monitors – Updated

Covert Contact - Live Streaming Social Media Intelligence - Syria Wide Monitor

There are two seven column monitors available to Covert Contact subscribers. There is one for Syria (pictured above) and another for Iran. While they might get a bit cramped or busy on smaller monitors these two are really designed for large widescreen (24″ or bigger) displays. Think wall mounted displays in a newsroom or command center.

The 7 Column Widescreen Monitor for Syria has just been updated and currently streams discussions about: The opposition, President Bashar al-Assad, key cities (Allepo, Homs, Damascus), Russia’s involvement, UN involvement, video and photos from war zone, and Syrian weapons of mass destruction (chemical weapons, biological weapons, and missiles). If something is happening in Syria this monitor will likely find it and find it quickly.
