The US military is heavily reliant on big data, and the military is keen to store detailed information about millions of people, be it the worst enemies or the closest allies in the field of warfare or maneuvers.
The US military has been expanding its database for 15 years and has become a powerful weapon. Today it has millions of faces, fingerprints, fingerprints and DNA data, according to the OneZero website.
The US military retains the data of all its contacts and now has identity data for about 7.4 million people, ranging from suspected terrorists to soldiers trained alongside US forces.
Glenn Krezai, director of DFBA, a specialist in biometric data and forensic science, said during a closed-door conference that identifying enemies makes US troops more focused when they kill enemies.
These details, which were provided early in 2019, were obtained under the Right to Information Act within the United States.
Following the killing of former ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi in October, the United States revealed that DNA tests confirmed the identity of a top militant in less than 15 minutes in Idlib province, northwestern Syria.
According to the "New York Times", the US special forces can move to the ground of operations, and possesses a DNA test device, which is characterized by its small size, such as "microwave", and therefore, can be carried very easily in the helicopter, when the need for an audit A quick.
and the task of supervising the information "biometric" system automated the US Agency, or what is known for short as "ABIS", and this system does not shed the spotlight is, given the sensitivity of the pivotal role in intelligence work.
According to Karzai, the system was used and used on the battlefield to identify non-Americans thousands of times in the first half of this year alone.
If someone is on the US priority list, this intelligent system can intensify its search, and then it can be monitored through surveillance systems installed on borders between countries and at military bases.
This identification system is linked to the FBI, and Karzai explains that this intelligence in monitoring can detect North Korean agents, Chinese spies or ISIS operatives.
If the United States has achieved this strength at the data level, it has invested heavily and spent more than $ 345 million on biometric database technology in the last 10 years.
The US Army Biometric Program was launched in 2004 and initially focused on fingerprint collection and analysis. This year, the Pentagon entered into a contract with Lockheed Martin to create a biometric database at an initial cost. About $ 5 million
