Drones Spray, Track the Unwilling in Air Force Plan


www.wired.com

Here’s how the U.S. Air Force wants to hunt the next generation of its enemies: A tiny drone sneaks up to a suspect, paints him with an unnoticed powder or goo that allows American forces to follow him everywhere he goes — until they train a missile on him.

On Tuesday, the Air Force issued a call for help making a miniature drone that could covertly drop a mysterious and unspecified tracking “dust” onto people, allowing them to be tracked from a distance.

Tracking dust? AKA known as "smart dust" or MEMS.

While this technology has been in use for a few years, this could be the cue
that "smart dust" is so nano now, as the USAF seeks out a miniature drone that can drop the smart dust
...


The solicitation floats the idea of dropping a “dust-like” cloud of electromagnetic signal-radiating taggants, either on top of the target or in his path so that he’ll walk into it.



DARPA is even looking into “smart dust” which is essentially a cloud of dust mote-sized sensors that could be sprayed into the air near a target in hopes that he or she might walk through the cloud and be tagged, meaning the drone or delivery system wouldn’t even have to make direct contact with the target (think bird-like drones that can crop dust a vehicle or person)



Some Pentagon ideas include marking targets with biological paints or micromechanical sensors


MEMS -
Micro Electromechanical Sensors


Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) are small integrated devices or systems that combine electrical and mechanical components. They range in size from the sub micrometer (or sub micron) level to the millimeter level, and there can be any number, from a few to millions, in a particular system. www.csa.com...



A new microelectromechanical-systems capacitive pressure sensor with extremely high sensitivity (2.24 F/kPa) is introduced. The sensor essentially consists of a small drop of mercury and a flat aluminum electrode that are separated by a 1 m-thick layer of Barium Strontium Titanate (a high dielectric-constant ceramic). The assembly constitutes a parallel-plate capacitor where the surface area of the electrodes is variable to a high degree. The mercury drop is pressured by a small corrugated metal diaphragm. As the electrode area of the parallel-plate capacitor varies, a total change in capacitance of more than 6 F is obtained.

Scary stuff, technological development is increasingly focused on covert surveillance and possible application for totalitarian purposes. A sign of the times I guess. Good post.

Wouldn't spraying an area to tag an enemy also 'tag' any birds or critters happening by?
I'm sorry for the poor flock of birds or animal that gets hit by a cruise missile.

One has to think of chemtrails when reading this article..
Maybe tracking is part of their purpose?

Covert, and increasingly so...they refer to it as TTL - Tracking, Tagging and Locating.

Of course, its only for the enemy

does any anybody notice that they are spraying mercury in the dust!!! dear god just spray them with agent orange and cyanide to get the job done faster. Screw that man, this is sick that they'd do this just to track a person and what if an innocent bystander got dusted and gaot mercury poison or the rain water washed into a water well or creek and the fish get contaminated????

Of course, the Air Force also notes that the technology it is fostering will be useful for things like tracking wildlife, though why anyone would want to fire a hellfire missile at a flock of migrating birds is unclear.




Yes, me thinks they have a few tricks up the sleeve.

If this "dust" is so small now...they can do just about anything with it, including solar radiation management

aka "chemtrails" aka Geoengineering.

And, once that is perfected, what next?

Lethal poison?

Its like this they say...they are not spraying Mercury....there is just "dust" that has
Mercury in it. Just so we have it straight.
Now...yes, it stands to reason that since this
nano dust has Mercury, Aluminum, and Barium Strontium Titanate components,
these elements would be / are entering our atmosphere....

And the air that we breath...

it's people who create such technology as this
and the evil people who use it are the ones
who should no longer be allowed to breathe.
Not only do we have an intrusion by the TSA
at airports de-flowering 6 yr olds of their
virginity but now we have DHS basically
passing judgment being judge jury and executioner
without due process.

Welcome to the 21st Century Gestapo.





nice work BTS

hahahaha, u think it comes off when it rains ???

think again, they use a dye in banks that does
not wash off the robber when it explodes. They
can use better stuff in this spray.

It will NOT wash off.
It eventually absorbs into the skin.

This came out of the mouth of the very pretty woman in 'American Beauty' Been looking for an intro for it.

yeah they do but a mini drone "crop dusts" people i am not so sure about.

however anything is possible

id rather see it used to the gitmo detainees plant them all and then let them all go home

and then take em out

Boon! Thanks for the videos...

I find myself wondering just how small this dust is....

So small they say that if we get a speck of it in our eyes, its just like other dust....

But what about our lungs?

If we can get it in our eyes surely we can breathe it in, right?

Or maybe just dust the skin of domestic dissidents and take 'em out when tshtf. Sure, why not. We may already be marked. As if it has to be this way, with 'dust'. Not you, of course, but those who believe in justice.

Thank God for Hell.

Nothing to say. I learned something from your signature.
