What the spec actually says without the tinfoil hat slant:

126.96.36.199.10 Shall (T) be capable of recognizing a back pack or bundle carried by a human being at a slant range of two times the specified operational altitude.
188.8.131.52.11 Shall (T) be capable of marking a target into a retrievable database.
