An Israeli company WeCU (We See You) is working on a system use behavioural screening to watch airport passengers and employees for possible threats. As reported on CNN WeCU is one of a number of companies working on a replacement for the less than perfect airport security measures now in place.
Employing a combination of infra-red technology, remote sensors and imagers, and flashing of subliminal images, such as a photo of Osama bin Laden, WeCU says the technology exists to identify threats without the targets even know they’re being screened.
The Transportation Security Agency (TSA) in the US is helping fund the study. Although the companies say that such profiling is fair, I really do wonder how this secret monitoring would stand up in court. Just about anything is better than the present “Security Theatre” that we experience today.
