Free Range Themes:
Weaponising Big Data
This site is the home of the ‘Weaponising Big Data’ Project, a Free Range research project on the military and intelligence sites in Britain that are preparing for offensive cyberwarfare and automated state surveillance.
UK Cyberwarfare & Surveillance Sites
This map lists the ‘principal’ sites in the UK related to network-centric cyber operations.
It would be possible to include many more military and intelligence sites; likewise there perhaps a civil or commercial sites which contribute to this network.
What this map represents are the core of the network – where the largest part of the decisions, operations and preparations for cyberwar, and the mass surveillance of society, are carried out.
Sites and site profiles
The purpose of this directory is to encourage the public to ‘witness’ the development of these new networks for surveillance and conflict; to allow us as individuals to see what is being done by the state in our names, but more importantly, to allow the state to see that we, by our actions, are not content with these developments.
Each site has a page devoted to it – click on the map above or the list to the right to access it. At the very least this provides a brief summary, and details of:
- Site operator » The organisation/company who operates or manages the site – with a link to the relevant sections of their web site where possible;
- Associated with » Other organisations/agencies who share or use the facilities on the site – with links to the organisations listed where possible;
- Category » The function the site performs;
- Kill Chain » Is the site is part of the ‘Kill Chain’;
- Local campaign » A link to a local campaign group for the site, where it exists;
- Wikipedia » A link to a Wikipedia page for the site, where it exists;
- OS Map » A link to an Ordnance Survey map centred on the site;
- Satellite » A link to a Google satellite image centred on the site.
Please note, in the early stated of this project the site is still a ‘work in progress’.
Currently, across most pages, you will see this symbol. That's because we're holding the space open to add more content at a later date. As the project undertakes further research – and we undertake a detailed review of each individual site and it's place in this network – the pages will be updated with more information, links, articles, and images.
