    Hackers must be excited. Soon all the needed access be granted so peoples identity can be wiped clean - just like in the movie

    If any of these guys did some research (although I suspect a few may actually know this), they'd know that the 'Dirty Bomb' is a total myth. You just can't spread nuclear matter effectively that way.

    I wish advances in monitoring or military equipment would stop using terrorism as an excuse.

    I was a lead programmer on a similar project back in the days, working for a gov't subcontractor, and its production name would roughly translate into English as "Danger Assessment System" or "DAS" for short (Just like this one LOL). A system like that would be, in layman's terms, "read-only" with data entry points distributed over intranet just like before deployment. In other words, it shouldn't increase risks of being hacked if designed properly as the network and all its parts remain much the same. What it roughly does is provides indexing and analytical (reporting) tools on "live" spatial data layers and their accompanying meta-data using various cross-section type queries, event tracking, and similar. It's, in its very essence, resource and computationally intense data reporting tool (at an impressive scale).
