"This app requires root access and will only run on devices with Qualcomm chipset."

That's not "for android". That's playing a Qualcomm trick with the baseband.

I also wonder if a better way might be (but I'm speculating here) to use the measured distance from the nearest cell tower (called Timing Advance), as in http://stackoverflow.com/a/137... - and couple it with a public database of known celltowers locations to spot recent "additions".

The confidential records list most of the equipment held in Afghanistan by American and coalition forces, and possibly even the CIA. As well as the expected arms, the list includes hundreds of robots, iris scanners, a huge rage of National Security Agency internet equipment and even a two types of chemical weapon. According to the site's staff, the authenticity of the material has been confirmed by military sources."
