New Mobile Pre-Crime Technology Marketed to U.S. – Developed by Ex-Israeli Intelligence
Wednesday, December 19, 2012
We have seen the continued roll-out of “suspect detection” systems that can only be labeled as pre-crime technology in our post-9/11, guilty-until-proven-innocent world. There has been massive investment in discovering what people intend to do vs. what they have actually done.
Suspect Detention Systems, Ltd. has gone as far as to claim that its mobile system of threat assessment is a “proven terror and crime prevention technology,” according to Government Security News. Furthermore, they reveal a new partnership which indicates implementation of their system across a wide range of citizen travel:
The Cogito system utilizes two sophisticated layers to detect a potential terror or criminal suspect at a point of entry, such as an airport, transportation terminal or border crossing. First, potential suspects are rapidly identified among a crowd using a remote ‘intention scanning’ technology. Suspects flagged by remote identification are then questioned by an automated interrogation system that can accurately identify whether the suspect intends to commit an act of crime or terror, or has ties to a criminal organization.
