DARPA Develops Helmet Of Obedience
Technofacisim Blog ^ | October 1st, 2010 | Technofacism Blog

Posted on 10/01/2010 3:19:39 PM PDT by GravityFree

It looks like our ever-diligent friends at DARPA have been busy creating a contingency plan for the OathKeeper movement. Thanks to a newly-developed pain modulator and behavior modification helmet, any US troops who decide they will obey the Constitution rather than the commands of the global puppet masters will now be getting some remote-controlled motivational persuasion.

Reminiscent of the “Collar of Obedience” from Star Trek, this new helmet according to it’s creator William J Tyler at Arizona State University, will be able to non-invasively produce all the same effects that are now possible only through deep surgical implants. Employing a form of targeted ultrasound technology, the “Helmet of Obedience” will be able to manipulate pain and motivational centers in the brain at a finer scale than even current magnetic stimulation.

It’s no mystery what agencies would be interested in this sort of technology and Tyler makes it painfully clear who his handlers are. According to Tyler, “We look forward to developing a close working relationship with DARPA and other Department of Defense and U.S. Intelligence Communities to bring some of these applications to fruition over the coming years depending on the most pressing needs of our country’s defense industries.”

I've checked SNOPES for this one and either they aren't aware of it or they haven't had time to check it out. I did find another article here:

http://science.dodlive.mil/2010/09/01/remote-control-of-brain-activity-using-ultrasound/

which seems to confirm the post in the Technofacism Blog. If they actually intend to equip American soldiers, or for that matter any other human being, with such devices this is truly a chilling development. I'd very much appreciate any FREEPER help in verifying the existence of this device.

I would think this would be grounds for many enlisted and officers to re-up or even accept this bullshit. This is not what they signed up for, to have a helmet that can give them pain if they don’t obey unlawful orders. Or even incredibly immoral, wrong, yet ‘lawful’ orders (if that’s what you want to call them).

I'm thinking they could use them on terrorists during interrogation instead of water-boarding.

But grunts are a little more cunning than DARPA realises. They might,,,,,,,, REMOVE THE HELMET. lol

One of the most fun jobs facing an NCO is making em keep their helmets on.

Probably. I will be more concerned when federal law enforcement gets them.

Which they will.

Don't forget those blue helmeted "Johns" from the UN.

I can see very useful applications for this technology in terms of interrogations for our Jihadi friends. But the premise of the article, using it to brainwash our troops to violate the constitution is silly and insulting.

This is the most likely real use for it. Something that would convince them to talk without leaving marks.

You could do that with microwaves... imagine feeling portions of your flesh literally boiling.

The link, being that it's to "dodlive.mil", would appear to be an official military site, and is unlikely to be a hoax.

In the article at the link, among the applications listed is "Navigational Commands/Assistance" and "Behavioral Reinforcement", which strongly implies an application which involves using the technology for controlling and directing troops.

Why would we be surprised? One look at what we have allowed this federal government to become explains everything. Increasingly tyrannical, they no longer respect or fear U.S. citizens. We need to change that.

Agree. This report is hype and nonsense.

And DARPA is to investigate/research all aspects of technology.. . .not all aspects are military related:

http://www.darpa.mil/mission.html
“DARPA’s mission is to maintain the technological superiority of the U.S. military and prevent technological surprise from harming our national security by sponsoring revolutionary, high-payoff research bridging the gap between fundamental discoveries and their military use.

Over the years, DARPA has worked to enhance our national security by funding research and technology development that not only have improved our military capabilities but have changed the way we live. Since the very beginning, DARPA has been the place for people with innovative ideas that lead to groundbreaking discoveries.”

Hype.

And the DARPA FY2011 PB addresses pain mitigation (controlling pain when injured).

Go to http://dtsn.darpa.mil/pmdb/ and search for yourself.

There was a different Star Trek where McCoy has a year to live - “For the World is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky” where the Instrument of Obedience controlled his thoughts and actions with pain !

“We look forward to developing a close working relationship with DARPA and other Department of Defense and U.S. Intelligence Communities to bring some of these applications to fruition over the coming years depending on the most pressing needs of our country’s defense industries.”

I would give large odds that the above quote is false.

Here is a more likely quote attributed to Dr. Tyler:

But Dr. William J. Tyler, an assistant professor of life sciences at ASU, writes on the DoD’s “Armed With Science” blog: “To overcome the above limitations, my laboratory has engineered a novel technology which implements transcranial pulsed ultrasound to remotely and directly stimulate brain circuits without requiring surgery. Further, we have shown this ultrasonic neuromodulation approach confers a spatial resolution approximately five times greater than TMS and can exert its effects upon subcortical brain circuits deep within the brain.”

Tyler’s technology, packaged in a warfighter’s helmet, would allow soldiers to flip a switch to stimulate different regions of their brains, helping them relieve battle stress when it’s time to get some rest, or to boost alertness during long periods without sleep. Grunts could even relieve pain from injuries or wounds without resorting to pharmaceutical drugs. More importantly, in the periods after brain trauma ultrasound technology could reduce swelling and metabolic damage that is often the root cause of lasting brain damage.

This is going to do wonders for their enlistment if they ever roll this out :P
