Tracked through mobile phone masts – Big Brother Watch
A startling investigation by The Observer has revealed our government is behind a new project which could enable them to track us using our mobile phones.
As they reported yesterday:
The technology ‘sees’ the shapes made when radio waves emitted by mobile phone masts meet an obstruction. Signals bounced back by immobile objects, such as walls or trees, are filtered out by the receiver. This allows anything moving, such as cars or people, to be tracked. Previously, radar needed massive fixed equipment to work and transmissions from mobile phone masts were thought too weak to be useful.
