Mass Surveillance: The Pentagon Can Now ID You By Your Heartbeat With A Laser

Do you LOVE America?


    As if we aren’t being tracked, recorded, and monitored enough, the Pentagon now has a laser that can identify a person by their heartbeat. Your heartbeat is going to be a lot harder to hide than your face…

    So when is enough surveillance enough? Apparently, there’s no line the government can cross that will rile up the masses. We’ve got facial recognition in airports and schools, cars that can be unlocked just by looking at them, technology that can detect a person’s unique way of walking, and of course the ubiquitous fingerprint, used for everything from smartphones to event ticketing. Next on the agenda…Your heartbeat, according to an article written by Engadget.

    As MIT Technology Review reports, the Pentagon has developed a laser that can identify people from a distance by their heartbeat alone. The technology, known as Jetson, uses laser vibrometry to identify surface movement on the skin caused by a heartbeat, and it works from 200 meters away.

    Everyone’s cardiac signature is unique, and unlike faces and fingerprints, it can’t be altered in any way. As with facial recognition and other biometrics which rely on optimal conditions, though, Jetson does have a few challenges. It works through regular clothing such as a shirt, but not thicker garments, such as a winter coat. It also takes about 30 seconds to collect the necessary information, so right now it only works if the target is sitting or standing still. And, of course, its efficiency would also depend on some kind of cardiac database. Nonetheless, under the right conditions, Jetson has over 95 percent accuracy.Engadget.

    This would mean the Pentagon’s goal is to create a cardiac database of everyone’s heartbeat in order to monitor, track, and surveil all of us. Orwell’s future looks better than what we’re going to be experiencing. Official documents from the Combating Terrorism Technical Support Office (CTTSO) suggest this has been in the works for some time. However, it could have other applications as well.

    Proponents say that this could help doctors wirelessly monitor patients, and it may very well be sold to the public as such using propaganda.  However, if history is any indication, this will be used as a tool of mass surveillance just like our smartphones are now.

    Move over facial recognition! The government is going to soon track us by our cardiac signatures!

      1. Every RADAR has it’s detector, I’m sure there is a simple way to defeat this tech. I want my heartbeat to say I’m Elvis.

      2. When is enough surveillance enough? When the first red light traffic camera went up decades ago.

      3. This may be viable under laboratory conditions at steady rate. The margin for error in actual application I believe would be high. Of course if they ID the wrong guy, and feel the justification of the use of lethal force, the courts will side with them as they do shooting the unarmed. The real world getting kooky is giving the movies a run for their money.

        • We are done for…It seems 90% of the population will go along with anything without even a whimper, as long as they have their high tech toys to keep them occupied and entertained. Nikita Khrushchev said “one day Americans will wake up and discover they are living in a communist country, and wonder how that happened”. Now we know, no one is paying attention.

      4. Someone wants to check my heartbeat they have to be medical personnel. anyone else it’s not their concern.

      5. “The government is going to soon track us by our cardiac signatures”

        Not track – Target.
        It’s the Pentagon not the NSA.

        • Knowing a little about the fragility of a human heart one would think that an electric / magnetic / microwave or something like it could (or has been) be developed to induce a fatal heart rhythm (VFib) from some distance. This does occur occasionally with a TASER. If it hasn’t been developed I’ll bet it was thought up and worked on but just not possible with present technology.

          • Gov . will target patriots so when we see major patriot talk show or website owners get killed, then we are next. Trump is a globalist folks, borders freakin’ outa control- wide open w/ possible ebola African invaders long with Muslims, etc. coming in to Texas, then migrating elsewhere. 90% of adults will go along w. gov. agendas of any kind like Hitler and Stalin leaders. less than 10% are patriots and we are losing it.

        In this application, a hard surface (rather than insulated) seems to be the preferred target. Also, you can see this particular spectrum.

      12. What’s next? Brain scans that can read your every thought. Technology has outlived it’s usefullness to humanity and has become a weapon to oppress. This direction could be seen coming for decades.

        • If you listen very closely, most people can barely tell you what they want and how they are doing.

          You have only assumed it was wrong, because of the context of spying.

      13. BULLSHIT!!

      14. Although our courts have flagrantly disregarded other constitutional protections, this time it could be different. The use of facial recognition generally doesn’t constitute an unreasonable search because your face is out there in public for anyone to see. But a heart beat is different. it’s is internal. It’s private. Nobody can know your heartbeat without a medical test. It’s like your blood type and cops have to get a warrant to take your blood for drug testing. I think targeting your heartbeat would at least require a warrant to survive a fourth amendment challenge. I could be wrong but that’s my argument and I’m sticking to it.

      15. As far as the “ubiquitous” use of fingerprints, no one has my fingerprints. I’ve never given them to anyone.

        On the other hand, the FBI has my mother’s fingerprints because of a child kidnapping that happened back in the 1930s. They had “school projects” on fingerprinting at all the schools in an attempt to find the missing child.

      16. If they can identify your heartbeat with a laser, they can probably stop your heart with that laser too, with no visible evidence the government killed you.

        EXECUTIVE ORDER 11921 allows the Federal Emergency Preparedness Agency to develop plans to establish control over the mechanisms of production and distribution, of energy sources, wages, salaries, credit and the flow of money in U.S. financial institution in any undefined national emergency. It also provides that when a state of emergency is declared by the President, Congress cannot review the action for six months. The Federal Emergency Management Agency has broad powers in every aspect of the nation. General Frank Salzedo, chief of FEMA’s Civil Security Division stated in a 1983 conference that he saw FEMA’s role as a “new frontier in the protection of individual and governmental leaders from assassination, and of civil and military installations from sabotage and/or attack, as well as prevention of dissident groups from gaining access to U.S. opinion, or a global audience in times of crisis.” FEMA’s powers were consolidated by President Carter to incorporate the National Security Act of 1947. It allows for the strategic relocation of industries, services, government and other essential economic activities, and to rationalize the requirements for manpower, resources and production facilities.
