Espionage in the free World

Tuesday, September 26th, 2000

Switzerland tries its take on a surveillance-system which could be used to
monitor all satellite-based communication, inlcuding mobil phones, some
internet traffic and more. Such a system already exists, operated by the
USA, Canada, New Zealand, Australia and Great Britain, called Echelon (see
the Statewatch Report from 1997 on Echelon). The Satos 3 project was slipped
half-covertly into the budget as “renovations for military buildings” and
is now built in the town of Zimmerwald and Heimenschwand. The following
are resources, mainly press coverage, on the subject of Satos 3.
