The device was developed as part of the Jetson program created by the Ministry of Defence. The laser is meant to be used for special operations.
The central military department of the United States announced the creation of a laser that can use heartbeat patterns to identify people. The laser will be used for military operations. The device currently has a range of 200 metres, but this is not the limit, and it is set to increase in the future.
The laser identifies people by analyzing micro vibrations of their heartbeat against the surface of their skin. The system can work even through heavy clothing. According to Pentagon representative Stewart Remali, the device has an accuracy of above 95%. The laser talks approximately thirty seconds to work.
In the future, there will be an option of combining Jetson with a face identification system. Using these two technologies together will offer unprecedented accuracy in identification. Today, the US military is actively working on building a database of ‘heartbeat signatures’.
