Russians Over Wichita: Could 'Open Skies' Work in Cyberspace?

Aug. 7, 2017 - If a store manager just outside Wichita, Kansas happened to look to the sky on a clear day a week before the Fourth of July, he may have caught a glimpse of what was once unthinkable: a Russian spy plane cruising straight over the American heartland, cameras snapping away on the ground below.

Two weeks ago a Russian taxi driver in frozen Tiksi, a town on in the far northern Russia in the Arctic Circle, may have been able to do the same, only he would've seen a large surveillance jet on a joint American-Canadian intelligence-gathering mission lumbering through the air.

But the residents of Kansas and northern Russia need not be alarmed by the geopolitical adversaries above; this kind of things happens all the time.
