Army to issue smart phones to soldiers to collect biometrics on enemy combatants
[link to www.usatoday.com]

Army officials want soldiers to bring the phones to the war zone, where their intelligence sharing and communications capabilities could revolutionize battlefield tactics.

A widespread deployment of the phones to the battlefield could come as soon as next year, Vane said.

What the Army found is that soldiers with smartphones are more likely to collect data and share it.

Vane said he wants to use the phones to collect biometrics on enemy combatants.

"Can we connect this to biometrics? Well, that's the direction we're headed," he said.

The technology is there, but "the challenge will be to work through the policy issues of sharing data and information assurance," Vane said. "Army officials remain concerned of enemy forces hacking into the phones, but don't want that fear to paralyze the use of these phones."

Realize they will be using them for biometrics on the streets of the U.S. during Martial Law too.
