According to this CBS news article, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will very soon have a laser scanner in use in airports across the country. This scanner will be able to “read people at the molecular level” from over 160 feet away.
It would read adrenaline levels, traces of most any substance, legal or illegal, all without any physical search. It can also be used on large numbers of people at the same time. This sounds like the perfect illegal surveillance tool, and it will soon, by next year, be in the hands of the very evil DHS.
This contraption is called the Picosecond Programmable Laser, and the company holding the patents is Genia Photonics. It should surprise no one that this company is partnered with another company, In-Q-Tel, that is chartered by the CIA and Congress to build “a bridge between the Agency and a new set of technology innovators.”
Although there are other similar technologies out there, this system is the most compact, and has great range. Genia Photonics claims that although the government will make use of this very invasive technology, that it also has the ability to detect medical conditions. While that may or may not be true, the real threat is to all of us who will be the targets of this new spying technology.
I imagine this will be sold to the people under the guise that strip searches by the TSA will be dramatically reduced. The sheep will probably cheer, while their bodies are scanned at the molecular level, and while the government pre-judges all according to this machine’s laser analysis.
How many more nails in our coffins are the ignorant masses going to allow before we are buried for good?
