Duncan Campbell who published first information about the global surveillance system in 1988 has discovered new proofs of its existence. The new documents obtained by Campbell from the data exfiltrated by Edward Snowden confirm that Echelon is a global system aimed at interception of data running through satellite communications. It is capable to filter the data based on the key words contained in the communication. The published documents also confirm the close cooperation of the 5-eyes countries (USA, UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand) on the development and operation of the system.
