New Body Scanners to Store Biometrics

Drudge, Infowars, and Prison Planet have forced the corporate media to cover the naked body scanner issue, much to the consternation of the government and contractors such as the Chertoff Group.

More and more people now realize naked body scanners are not about protection from terrorists, as the government claims, but is in fact a technology designed for control and data collection. If the government is going to be successful implementing its control grid, it will have to introduce technology that can be touted as physically non-threatening. The largest independent union of airline pilots in the world earlier this week urged its members to boycott body imaging machines, citing dangers of excessive exposure to harmful levels of radiation during the screening process.
A Massachusetts company, Iscon Video Imaging, has stepped into the fray and is offering body scanning technology minus harmful radiation.
“The Iscon 1000D is the only whole body imaging portal that can be integrated with state of the art technologies to detect virtually any object, without radiation or privacy issues and confirm that the person is indeed who they claim to be,” a press release issued on October 29 states.
The “enhanced” version of Iscon’s 1000D whole body scanner is equipped with optional biometric technologies and identity verification techniques, according to the company. The machine “uses thermo-conductive infrared technology that completes a 360°scan in 30 seconds, reveals a multitude of objects, but doesn’t penetrate clothing, so there’s no privacy or radiation issues,” explains Iscon.
“Facilities are facing significant privacy and health issues using scanners that expose a persons body parts that can be stored and shared digitally,” Iscon founder and president Izrail Gorian explains in the press release. “Using existing databases available today, or using a proprietary system of employees or inmates, security will ultimately be enhanced for everyone and at the same time ease verification for those who are not suspect.”
Iscon says the new system utilizes facial recognition, fingerprint, and iris recognition technology. It is capable of comparing a person’s facial attributes to existing databases and cross matching with other systems, can access large law enforcement databases, and is also capable of scanning a person’s iris and cross-matching the collected information with databases.
Earlier this year, Iscon introduced the line of sophisticated thermo-conductive scanners for use in U.S. prisons. “In addition to being highly effective for prisoner and courtroom scanning, the system doesn’t emit any radiation and doesn’t penetrate clothing so there are no privacy issues. The Iscon system can also be used in commercial security areas, airports and other security sensitive areas,” Gorian explained in a Marketwire press release posted on the CorrectionsOne.com website. The company also offers a portable device.
Iscon is offering a technology that addresses many of the government’s biometric collection needs and is peddling it as an alternative to the demonstrably dangerous backscatter radiation system now going in airports, an effort successful in large part due to the effort of Michael Chertoff, the former Department of Homeland Security boss. Rapiscan, the company that manufactures the machines, is a Chertoff Group client.
Gorian and Iscon claim the new technology is non-invasive and protects privacy. In 2008, Rapiscan made a similar claim when it said its Rapiscan Secure 1000 technology protects the “privacy of the person being screened while enabling effective detection of threat items.”
In August of this year it was revealed that law enforcement in fact saves images produced by the machines. “Now it turns out that some police agencies are storing the controversial images after all. The U.S. Marshals Service admitted this week that it had surreptitiously saved tens of thousands of images recorded with a millimeter wave system at the security checkpoint of a single Florida courthouse,” Declan McCullagh wrote for CNet News at the time.
The Iscon system represents a one-stop biometric data collection technology that may soon be used in airports – and courthouses (as noted above) and eventually at the local mall and sports arena, depending on the severity of the next false flag terror attack.
The government has a keen interest in collecting and compiling biometric data on citizens. The FBI announced a $1 billion effort to build the world’s largest computer database of peoples’ physical characteristics, a project that would give the government unprecedented abilities to identify individuals in the United States and abroad, the Washington Post reported in December of 2007.
The Department of Homeland Security has collected biometrics for years, including the use of iris scans at certain airports under the guise of identity verification of travelers who have passed background checks and want to move through lines quickly. “The department is also looking to apply iris- and face-recognition techniques to other programs,” the Post added.
Alex Jones has warned about this ongoing effort since the late 1990s (see the video below). The global elite are determined to eventually track and trace every human on the planet. It cannot possibly hope to accomplish this ambitious task unless humanity willingly accepts the act of docilely surrendering personal information – from iris scans to images of their naked children – under the guise of a contrived war against false flag terrorism engineered by the government.
