Does the FAA know about this? 

I've heard of satellites in low-earth orbit, but this seems a bit extreme.

While Great Britain led the way in the mid-'70s, Keefe marks the U.S., Kenya, Pakistan, Singapore and many others as current participants, taking satellite pictures from 10 miles up, sending submarines to hover silently and aiming portable laser devices to pick up conversations inside rooms. (Emphasis mine)
I can't imagine what the heat shielding costs on one of those things.
