About @HelicoptersofDC

@HelicoptersofDC started in 2020 as a transponder-based helicopter reporting system. However the FAA exempts military and government craft from using transponders so in October 2020 we launched #CopterSpotter, a crowd-sourced, decentralized helicopter tracking system capable that brings to light aircraft the government would rather hide in the darkness.

We have big plans moving forward categorized as Roadmap, Advocacy and Experimental:
Roadmap: leverage our dataset to create a machine learning algorithm to identify helicopters
Roadmap: bring aviation radio calls onto the platform to identify operators
Experimental: with automated cameras to detect helicopters
Experimental: with audio analysis of aircraft overhead
Advocacy: generate video content about helicopters operating overhead
Advocacy: generate video content about other projects in aviation, big data, smart cities
Advocacy: analysis of government reports to bring tweet-size bites to the community
Advocacy: communicate #CopterSpotter findings to law makers to influence public policy

What you'll get by supporting us: progress updates and beta feature announcements. We want your opinions on what we can do better!
