fingerprints, DNA and retina to identify a person reliably, but unfortunately not the distance. For the special units of the U.S. army, these methods are of no help, if you need to identify a target person for sure. They wanted a technique that also works from a distance, sure. Now the Pentagon has delivered: A new Laser, called Jetson, is able to determine a Person clearly from the distance, on the basis of his heartbeat. The unique cardiac signature can even be used through clothing, sampled, according to “mit Technology Review”.

The prototype works at distances up to 200 meters, the range can be increased, so Steward Remaly from the office for combating terrorism at the Pentagon, “I don’t want to claim that we could do it from space, but a larger Empire should be wide possible.”

Beijing will send no drones in wars, but the Export of combat drones. The new CH-5 is to expand the dominance of Beijing, and more. Your advantage: you is as deadly as the US competition, but costs only the half of it.

The instrument measures the movement of the surfaces of the body or clothing. In normal clothes, the System does not work reliably when heavy clothing such as winter coats or vests, though. The project is currently in an early stage. To demonstrate the feasibility, has been converted to device a commercially available industry, the is usually used to vibration in industrial buildings to be measured. In order to recognize a Person, must be directed to the Laser for about 30 seconds on the target. The target person is not allowed to move. With a custom-made device, these Handicaps are likely to be less.

A Problem remains, however: to recognize a Person based on their cardiac signature, one must know the signature first. Similar as in the case of fingerprints, the Pentagon would have to build a database of potential target persons.

This Problem does not arise in the case of the most common biometric identification, face recognition. It requires but a frontal view of the face. For the Pentagon this is a Problem because of the angle of view as a recording at the drone footage is often not possible. With a distance laser, it would be possible to identify a Person by a drone of a doubt, and then kill them with another drone.

The Pentagon hopes that the cardiac signature can’t be hidden, such as caps and beards facial recognition may make it impossible. If that’s true, it can, however, be doubted. Already a simple pulse generator, such as a Massagepad should be able to overlay the typical surface motion of the skin.
