U.S. Military Has A Laser That Can Identify People By Their Heartbeats

Daily Mail: Pentagon has developed a laser that can identify subjects from hundreds of meters away based on their HEARTBEAT

* The Pentagon can identify targets from afar using a laser to measure heartbeats
* Technology is being developed for U.S. Special Operations for surveillance
* Infrared lasers are able to penetrate clothing and skin to monitor blood flow
* Heartbeats are completely unique unlike faces or even thumbprints
* Prototypes currently have a range of about 200 meters or 219 yards

U.S. special forces are taking a more 'intimate' approach to remotely identifying targets, using lasers to sense their heartbeat.

According to MIT Technology Review, the Pentagon has developed a prototype of the technology, code-named 'Jetson,' that uses infrared lasers to read a person's cardiac signature.

Though far less obvious than fingerprints or faces, people's heartbeats have a distinct profile, making them among the most useful biometrics for uniquely identifying a person.

And with a turn of the knob to the "kill" setting, the game changes.

Anyone know if those aim auto-correcting gun conversion kits have been deployed at all yet?

Actually the article errs a little.

Heartbeats are not entirely unique, but the chances of a duplicate within the broad spectrum range of your target/targets is infinitely small.

Can it identify the Anons at this site?

Too many pacemakers in this crowd for that.

Does a persons heartbeat identify their nationality?

Are heartbeat profiles changed at times of severe stress?

Would the equipment match the target against a heartbeat profile?

Are identical twin's heartbeat profiles identical?

Are there differences between male/female heartbeat profiles that would show up in the scan?
