Militants in Idlib accuse Russia of selling cameras with GPS devices to them

92
A strange accusation against Russia was made by militants who occupy positions in the Syrian province of Idlib. Representatives of the terrorist groups accused Russia of allegedly placing representatives of our country in GPS cameras that could be used to determine the coordinates of an object.

Militants in Idlib accuse Russia of selling cameras with GPS devices to them




Material with claims made by militants against Russia has been posted on the Lebanese Al-Masdar information resource:

Militants from Idlib province have accused Russia of deploying GPS tracking devices to determine their coordinates. The militants say that one of their videographers was cleaning the camera and found a microchip in it.

And supposedly it was planned by Russia.

The AMN material noted that the militants purchased these cameras "on the black market in Turkey." It is alleged that it was the Russians who sold the cameras to them. By what signs they determined this, is not said. It is unlikely that sellers in the Turkish market showed buyers their passports.

From the publication:
They later stated that their troops suffered heavy losses as a result of the operation of these GPS trackers because the Russian military was able to see their whereabouts.

In this regard, the question arises: what exactly was the operator supposed to shoot in the positions of the militants? Is it not another production video on behalf of White Helmets?

          It goes without saying - to encourage and reward. Indeed, judging by the claims of the "buyers" - their troops suffered heavy losses as a result of the operation of these GPS trackers, because the Russian military was able to see their location.

          thermal imaging sight working on the basis of a matrix with a resolution of 640x480 pixels and having a lens with a diameter of 75 mm. The device sees a thermal target the size of a person at a distance of up to 2 km.

              FORTUNA is a Russian manufacturer of thermal imaging equipment for power and security units, customs and rescue structures, hunters and specialists in sports shooting. The company began its development in 2010 on the basis of a group of specialists in the field of optical devices, and after 6 years it became one of the leading manufacturers of thermal imaging devices for various purposes (sights, monoculars, glasses, pre-objective lenses, mobile thermal imaging systems) in the domestic market.
              FORTUNA devices are built on the basis of 384x280 / 640x480 high-resolution thermal imaging arrays and 13/19/25/40/52/75 / 100mm high-aperture lenses that make it possible to detect a thermal object 1.75 / 0.5 in size at a distance of up to 2500 meters.

              Very similar to the Fortuna ONE 6L thermal imaging scope (3.2x, 75mm, 640x480px, 30Hz)

In order not to solder anything and to be able, for example, to connect to such a device through arduino and sort out other sensors, a gas sensor, a motion sensor, a temperature sensor. In fact, there is such a gps and other sensors, plus the platform listed is popular but not even the smallest for the home, it is for a smart home where the dimensions of the sensors are not so important. And if with soldering, then there the size is four times smaller than the key on which we click. I wish the pulsar set such a gps fly fly sensor in the termon) So desa guys.

      Something absurd. The Russians allegedly illegally sold to the militants, with whom the Russians are fighting cameras with bugs. The militants bought them on their own initiative.

          Have you heard about the "Internet of Things"?
          And any of these items can be easily cracked by a hacker.
          So the problem is not only for the Idlib militants, but for everyone.

              At the Terminator - not in the know. But in the near future, man,
              who bought a budgetary Chinese or Korean washing machine,
              or another production, will not even know that in this simple
              an electro-mechanical device built-in chip with a GPS receiver and more
              the most diverse functions.
              What for? Well, for example, you decide to run the washer remotely
              from your smartphone two hours before you get home. Conveniently.
              But the hacker will also be able to launch it from his smartphone.
              And to make a mode: drying at maximum speed 5 times in a row.
              The wash will break. You will come home, and the washing machine has broken, it is not known why sad

                I know a nation that can cope with this misfortune. Well, if the F-35 brought to mind, then the Terminator rests on the sidelines. I know something about electronics, and therefore I trust mechanics more. The hacker will not hack into my washer, my toad will strangle such loot for the bullshit to spread. Well, I have such a nature. request

      The picture is not a video camera, but an expensive thermal imaging sight from 300000 rubles. Here they put a tracker in it and sold it to a cheaper one.
