Lasers , Heartbeats and The Jetsons

News this week tells us that the US D.o.D has developed a laser based heartbeat identification system .

“The Jetson prototype can pick up on a unique cardiac signature from 200 meters away, even through clothes.”

“Everyone’s heart is different. Like the iris or fingerprint, our unique cardiac signature can be used as a way to tell us apart. Crucially, it can be done from a distance.”

“This method was supposedly used to identify an infamous ISIS terrorist before a drone strike.”

“While it works at 200 meters , longer distances could be possible with a better laser…”

Similar ‘laser pointers’ have been around for quite a while now , many may have the scars to prove it .

Other more humane applications can be found in the medical industry .

The fact that special forces are using these gadgets would suggest that persons of interest who’s heartbeat signature is being detected would more than likely soon have no heartbeat signature at all .

I also vaguely remember the term the term ‘Jetsons‘ being bandied around but could not figure out the context .

But I digress , similar technology was researched and developed by NASA back in 1994 .

    • Successful spin off into DOD efforts in long range vibrometry resulting in significant development contracts with Navy and Air Force (>$3M).
    • The resulting products will have the potential to serve large military and commercial markets.
  • Laser Radar Remote Sensing Vibrometer

Further research conducted by NASA also suggests that such technology could possibly be used over large distances , very large distances .

“A proposed development of laserbased instrumentation systems would extend the art of laser Doppler vibrometry….”

“A system according to the proposal could covertly measure vibrations of objects at distances as large as thousands of kilometers…”

“A typical system as envisioned would be placed in orbit around the Earth for use as a means of determining whether certain objects on or under the ground are of interest as potential military targets. Terrestrial versions of these instruments designed for airborne or land- or sea-based operation could be similarly useful for military or law enforcement purposes.”

I’m not sure what ‘law enforcement purposes‘ means exactly , but there is no doubt that the current systems are exceptionally fine tuned .

Sound and speech can be simply described as a vibration , it appears that the systems have multiple uses .

Although the systems described above work using traditional laser wavelengths , they have also been further developed to use microwave and millimeter wavelengths .

Similar systems can be used to eavesdrop through walls .

Further tweaks allow through the wall imaging .

Just a hop skip and a jump would allow the incorporation of similar technology into RADAR or LIDAR systems .

Other applications include biometrics , now a byword for ever more intrusive surveillence .

Although the brain is now the new heart .

As many should now realize , technology that reaches the mainstream has been with us for decades .

Could the current systems be fine tuned for further sensitivity ?

Maybe even incorporated into a distributed antenna array ?

Maybe even incorporated into RADAR and LIDAR systems ?

Maybe even sent into space ?

Possibly even be tuned for further sensitivity ?

Oh yes , I nearly forgot about The Jetsons .

Although I do suspect that there is more to the technology than detecting heartbeats and unmasking stealth planes .
