INFORMATION WARFARE AND HOLO-TECHNOLOGY On 31 March 1997, the magazine Defense Weekly ran a feature entitled, "Air Force Organises For Offensive Info War". According to the article, the U.S. Air Force has created the position of Deputy Director for Information Operations. An Offensive Information Warfare division will be created under the new deputy director. The division has an organisational code - AF/XOIOW - and is to be headed by Lt. Col. Jimmy Miyamoto. Offensive information warfare is among the least discussed aspect of the Air Force's move to organise, train and equip the service for information dominance. The new information operations office will co-ordinate with the Pentagon's Joint Chiefs of Staff, National Security Agency, Defense Intelligence Agency, Central Intelligence Agency, National Reconnaissance Office, Defense Airborne Reconnaissance Office and the National Imagery and Mapping Agency. Information dominance covers the two following known areas: The USAF Office of Scientific Research is working on developing a small affordable laser and high-powered microwave for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) - such as the ones probably being tested at the Groom Lake/Area 51 installation in Nevada and other sensitive locations. The UAVs will undertake a wide variety of missions, including disabling enemy communications and computer systems through software viruses beamed into enemy weapons and information links. These virsues remain dormant until activated by satellite, aircraft radar, or jamming equipment. When activated, the virus can render equipment useless, or better still, introduce a "very subtle change for a finite period of time". Holographic projection. The Defense Weekly article describes a quasi-information warfare/psychological operations program that was first discussed by the Air Force after Operation Desert Storm in the Gulf War. This involves projection of a three-dimensional holographic image to act as a decoy. The Pentagon spoke openly about its use of holographic projections during discussions of its non-lethal weapons program back in 1994. Since then, the program disappeared, most likely becoming a black project. The article concluded by stating that the U.S. Army's JFK Special Warfare Center and School disclosed back in 1991 that it was looking to develop a 'PSYOPS Hologram System' with the capability to "project persuasive messages and three-dimensional pictures of cloud, smoke, rain droplets, buildings, flying saucers and religious figures.

hey maybe they could use this technology to....

lets see... make people belive that an airplane hit the pentagon and
not a guided unmanned drone.

or terrorists entering an airplane on a fuzzy video.... or

heck wait... dood they could fool anybody about anything with this !!!

No I don't think it works like that if you take pictures or video of it the hologram will not show up on a picture or video that is why troops were no allowed to take their cameras and photographs into operation desert storm cuz they would be like WTF why is my humveee not showing up in my camera

i need a minute to collect my thoughts here...wow, overload..lol..ok, im better now...so i remember reading about our solidiers uniforms were suppose to have this "holographic" technology. something like fiber optics built in...i could be mistaken but its something along those lines. anyone know what im talkin about?

sublime what your talking about is future US military uniforms having fiber optics and cameras on the back to project an image on the front or vise versa right?


The perfect cloak of Frodo Baggins is still far off, if not impossible, but DARPA-funded researchers are working on a new kind of camouflage that would fall only a few steps short of elvish magic. According to Philip Moynihan, a NASA engineer who published a paper on the subject in 2000, so-called adaptive camouflage would visually merge soldiers with their surroundings--whether that's an urban backdrop or dense jungle brush. The basic principle is simple: Cameras would capture the scene behind the uniform while embedded displays would reproduce the image on its front.


Invisibility Uniforms

But what this thread is discussing its a hologram like projecting a human being that looks real but if you touch its just light its different form the future military uniform.

would be cool but there would be a rpoblem if the lens on a camera got scratched lol

I'm pretty sure holograms work by colliding lasers or something. Anyhow in order to create a hologram you pretty much have to surrond the area with what ever you use to project images. Its just not practical for battlefield use.

CB it is great for a decoy on the battle field you make a whole division of soldier out of holograms and the enemy thinks you are going to attack there then you launch your surprise its like what the allies did before D-Day just a whole lot more modern.

I'll grant this its practical if you can set up the hologram in the first place. Its probably better in a defensive position. The problem after we use a few times in battle the whole world will figure it out. Then all it takes is good recon to determine whats fake and whats real. Whether or not recon can notice its fake is probably going to be determined by how well the equipment is hidden and the quality of the image. The first couple of generations of these won't be practical.

It depends who the enemy is if its a 3rd world country then they don't even have recon or good equipment so they will fall for the decoy. If your going up against a modern country I agree it wont e that practical or useful.

Well all it takes is a pair of binoculars to spot the fakes. Most snipers can get there hands on their hands on a 50. caliber rifle so that paired with the scope can probably spot and destroy the system from about a kilometer away.

But they wouldn't know its fake they would think its real the hologram soldiers. and if they shot at them not knowing its fake and the bullet went right through they would be really confused and they have just revealed their positions.

you know it takes more than 1 shot from a sniper to find him.

No it does not see im telling you Uncle Sam has thought of everything here is our new motto on shot and your busted
check this out devil and prepare to be amazed



FORT BENNING, Georgia (CNN) -- It's easy to hear a gunshot but often hard to tell where it came from. But that may change, thanks to new technology called "Bullet Ears" that uses sound to pinpoint instantly the source of gunfire.

The U.S. military is testing the system, which may prove helpful in spotting snipers. "It uses both the shock wave and the muzzle blast to do a high-precision localization of the bullet flight path as well as the sniper location," says Greg Duckworth of BBN Technologies, the Massachusetts company that developed Bullet Ears.

So devil to sum it up US soldiers will be able to spot snipers after one shot have a nice day.

Oh yeah every soldiers going to get to work with these. Anyhow it probably won't be hard to tell the difference between a real person and a hologram. Besides the sniper can always knock out the equipment from afar.

CD what are you talking about these things are being used in Iraq to help soldiers know where snipers are you could mount one on a humvee and in a squad or platoon one or two soldiers need to keep this on their backpack not every soldiers needs to have one.

These things can only cover so many soldiers. Its going to be a long time before we start seeing these used extensivly. Of course theres probably ways to fool it.

How can you fool it so far in all testing they have been performing good and like I said they are already being used in Iraq and this technology is good for urban combat where someone can pop out of a window take a shot and duck down but with this you know where they are even if they are not at the window anymore

most likely it wont be general infantry issue.
probably only armour or aircraft or HQ type thing for showing the terrain or someing like that.

Why wouldn't it be general infantry use its light compact and you don't need many in a squad just one will do the trick and in Iraq most humvees that go on patrol have already mounted this on the back. Plus the point of this is to protect troops in the field not an armored convey or an HQ those things are already well defendant against any snipers in the are.
