Anyone familiar with RFID technology knows that they are passive, unpowered devices that must rely on inductively or capacitively coupled energy to operate. At best their range is a few centimeters. Any thoughts about remotely tracking or controlling soldiers with these things is pure science fiction.
They do have advantages, though in security situations in which weapons and sensitive equipment can be linked to a soldier or soldiers. These keys in effect disable weapons and gear that is dropped, left behind or taken away from troops rendering them useless.
And eliminate the possibility of picking up a fallen fellow soldier's weapon and using it to replace your own in a pinch.
Might put a premium on hands, too...
Sounds like you are maintaining your classic, chronic
“IF I DIDN’T SEE IT, TOUCH IT, FONDLE IT OR DIGEST IT, IT ISN’T REAL”
Lots of things are evidently beyond your imagination.
Yet plenty real and functional.
Reportedly, the chips that can be communicated with from a distance are larger and have some incredibly sophisticated/advanced power systems. Some claim they are powered by the body itself. Others claim other power technologies.
You also seem to be assuming that radio frequencies etc. are the only means such chips might communicate at a distance through. That leaves out other dimensional options. . . . as well as technologies simply not widely known.
“OK, if people want to make RFID technology into a religious argument, so be it.”
We all thought that it was just a bunch of hogwash.
Not to mention the stories of dna evidence stories, and i am sure the older folks had heard rumors of such a thing as the police being able to get your finger prints as evidence against you.
We already have proof that the Government people will do anything.
