All currently existing systems of identification rely on the unique properties of humans, such as fingerprints, face and even gait. However, few people know that besides all this, to determine the identity of a person by his heartbeat — each hit affects the body vibrations which are different for each person. It is this distinctive feature of people have used the US military to create a laser that can recognize a person at a distance up to 200 meters with an accuracy of 95%.
The U.S. military preferred the recognition of the individual’s heart rate, as during anti-terrorist operations they desperately need to pinpoint the target, but to do it in the face and the gait, in such circumstances, is almost impossible. The new identification system was named Jetson, and when it was created, the developers used the existing instruments for monitoring and registration of frequency of various vibrations — vibration meters.
To identify people by heartbeat
They are able to catch the vibrations of the human body at a distance up to 200 meters using a laser beam — it is not an obstacle even clothes, unless, of course, we are not talking about a thick and heavy winter jacket. To collect identification data, the device need just 30 seconds, but if the object is standing or sitting still.
In the opinion of the Steward Rimali, employee of the Department for anti-terrorist operations in the Pentagon, the working distance of the apparatus Jetson can be increased as well as recognition accuracy. In the future, this technology can be used not only for military purposes — for example, doctors will be able to diagnose the arrhythmia.
It is noteworthy that the Military-air forces of the USA already has a similar technology called VIBE. She was not able to identify the identity of the people, but it works with technology — to determine what type of engine is equipped with one or the other machine, a special algorithm uses the data on the fluctuations in the housing technology.
