    Pentagon to implant microchips in soldiers

    Pentagon to implant microchips in soldiers

    The Department of Defense is planning to implant microchips in soldiers' brains for monitoring their health information, and has already awarded a $1.6 million contract to the Center for Bioelectronics, Biosensors and Biochips (C3B) at Clemson University for the development of an implantable "biochip".

    Soldiers fear that the biochip, about the size of a grain of rice, which measures and relays information on soldiers vital signs 24 hours a day, can be used to put them under surveillance even when they are off duty.

    But Anthony Guiseppi-Elie, C3B director and Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and Bioengineering claims the that the invivo biosensors will save lives as first responders to the trauma scene could inject the biochip into the wounded victim and gather data almost immediately.

    He believes that the device has other long-term potential applications, such as monitoring astronauts’ vital signs during long-duration space flights and reading blood-sugar levels for diabetics.

    “We now lose a large percentage of patients to bleeding, and getting vital information such as how much oxygen is in the tissue back to ER physicians and medical personnel can often mean the difference between life and death,” said Guiseppi-Elie. “Our goal is to improve the quality and expediency of care for fallen soldiers and civilian trauma victims.” The biochip also may be injected as a precaution to future traumas."

    Clemson scientists have formulated a gel that mimics human tissue and reduces the chances of the body rejecting the biochip, which has been a problem in the past.

    The researcher predicts the biochip is five years away from human trials, and the DoD could start implanting microchips in soldiers bodies soon after.

    Fingerprints to speed up lunch lines

    LANCASTER - Using fingerprints, voice tones and eye-movement patterns has long been the stuff of spy movies, but the use of biometrics is now coming to the Lancaster School District.

    The district plans this fall to use a fingerprint scanner at El Dorado School to help speed up the lunch line. Officials say it backs up when youths enter their ID numbers on a keypad to buy lunch.

    "With kindergartners and first-graders, even students who go away for summer or for break, there are issues of remembering their number," said Connie Conrad, director of child nutrition. "It's a lot easier not to have a crying child, trying to get their name from them."

    While school administrators rave about being able to expedite the lunch line and make operations more efficient, the system worries officials at the American Civil Liberties Union.

    "Anytime we collect biometric data, it creates a huge danger that data can end up misplaced or someone else can get a hold of it," said Peter Eliasberg, an ACLU attorney. "It's a really bad idea."

    But Lancaster officials, representatives from the firm supplying the device, and a Santa Barbara school district already using it say those fears are unwarranted.

    The device takes an image of the fingerprint and converts 15 points from the print to an encrypted code used to identify the student. The print is then discarded and can't be reproduced if someone were to hack into the system.

    "Our system doesn't store a copy of the child's fingerprint. It creates a proprietary identity template, which can't be turned into a fingerprint or used outside of the system," said Kevin Creel with M2SYS, the Atlanta firm that developed the device. "There is absolutely no privacy risk to parents or kids."

    "The fear is we are fingerprinting people. We are not doing that at all," said Bill Schaaff, Lancaster's child nutrition computer systems specialist. For those parents who are still concerned, Lancaster will make the program voluntary and allow students to continue to use the PIN system if they want to.

    The 1,200-student Hope School District in Santa Barbara piloted the program last fall and has been using it at all three of its campuses since December.

    Some parents expressed concern over the fingerprinting and not wanting their children's meals tracked. They also raised the issue of sanitation, said Julie Wood, Hope's business manager.

    About 10 to 12 parents opted out of the program, Wood said.

    Wood said her district gave a demonstration to ACLU officials, who said they were OK with it as long the district made it voluntary and the students' codes were erased from the system once they graduated.

    Are ID chips too invasive?

    It appears that the effort to implant microchips into humans is not only alive and well but moving ever closer to getting under everyone's skin.

    Delray Beach firm VeriChip, the nation's only FDA-approved company allowed to produce microchips for injection into people, got a boost recently from the American Medical Association.

    The AMA said such devices "may help to identify patients, thereby improving the safety and efficiency of patient care." But the council warned that the devices' safety and security are unclear.

    That was enough to create a stir in the technology and medical worlds as well as among privacy and religious folks. And enough to put a smile on VeriChip's face.

    Scott Silverman, chief executive officer of VeriChip, says the primary aim is to help high-risk medical patients such as those with diabetes, Alzheimer's, cancer and heart conditions.

    The chip, implanted in the upper right arm, allows medical personnel to access a patient's medical history in the event the person is unconscious or otherwise unresponsive. The person's data is stored in VeriChip's database.

    Sounds a little spooky, and makes George Orwell seem more like a prophet than a novelist.

    Silverman says it could save lives, "it's fairly safe and there have been no side effects." VeriChip's sister corporation, Digital Angel Corp., has been implanting chips in pets for 15 years.

    "It should be first and foremost voluntary," Silverman says. "No one should ever be forced to get an implantable microchip."

    But Katherine Albrecht, a co-author of the book Spychips, whom I'm sure drives Silverman crazy, argues that VeriChip is taking us down a treacherous road.

    "You can feel the writing on the wall that this is the direction our society is moving," said Albrecht, who received her doctorate in education from Harvard, specializing in adult development and consumer education.

    The chip uses technology called a Radio Frequency Identification tag.

    Albrecht points out that the RFID technology used in the chips is becoming increasingly pervasive throughout our society as merchants use it to track inventory and purchases.

    "If everybody had a chip in them ... we would be blissfully unaware of Big Brother," Albrecht said.

    She says the program is flawed because if there are problems accessing VeriChip's database, the chip will prove useless. And, she says, as the AMA pointed out, there are questions about patient security.

    And the religious have concerns of biblical proportions: tagging people with such devices reads like a precursor to the "mark of the beast."

    Silverman says his company's focus is on medical patients. And the chip they use is "passive" or, simply stated, it does not emit a strong signal. To read the chip, medical personnel must use a scanner and be within 12 inches.

    And he says the data is stored in a facility as secure as any of the best. He does admit once you have a chip, it could be used for other "applications." You can tie financial accounts to them and other data.

    He points out a year ago one company injected two employees with chips for security reasons. In addition, nightclubs in Barcelona, Spain, Rotterdam, Holland, and Edinburgh, Scotland, use them so patrons can access VIP lounges and make purchases.

    A bit much for me. The only chip I want in my body is a potato chip, maybe a tortilla chip. Definitely not a microchip.
