SITUATION

Israeli security agencies have lived up to their reputation of being hardened forces which can make surprise attacks. The security personnel have apprehended 29 wanted terrorists in Judea and Samaria during a security sweep overnight. This dangerous and heavily coordinated operation involved the IDF, Border Police, Israel Police’s Judea and Samaria division, and the Shin Bet internal security agency. There were a series of raids in which the forces captured more than two dozen terrorists who were wanted for rioting and terrorist attacks against Israeli civilians and security personnel.

The suspects were taken into custody and transferred to relevant authorities for interrogation. During the anti-terror operation, IDF forces also uncovered a hidden weapons cache in the city of Hebron, south of Jerusalem. A ‘Carlo’ style automatic weapon, a pistol, and large amounts of ammunition were confiscated during the raid, and IDF spokesperson said Wednesday morning.

CHALLENGE

Israel’s security forces have done a tremendous job by successfully capturing 29 wanted terrorists in a covert operation. What is important to note here is that this was done with coordination between IDF and other police divisions.

It is a challenge for Israeli Defense Forces, Shin-Bet, Police and Border Security forces to fight against extremism that breeds in the minds of people who try their best to blend into society, yet are very dangerous. This is very similar to dangerous viruses which mimic normal human hormones and molecules. There must be a way for the anti-terrorist organizations to screen out such dangerous terrorists from among the hordes of asylum seekers, immigrants, and the general public.

Terrorists are come up with new ways to evade the anti-terror agencies terrorists these days. They are going back to the old-school ways, rarely leave footprints. This information is still stored in their brains, but authorities have not had a way to detect it.

A completely new approach to intelligence gathering is needed which can directly detect the presence of specific information in the brain of the arrested persons. If investigators can detect an awareness of crucial details of terror events, organizations, high-value terrorists, then linkages can be drawn, terrorist hierarchies and command structure can be understood.

To do this via torture is not effective nor humane. The arrested terrorists will not willingly disclose crucial details, and sometimes certain knowledge cannot be expressed through words. There is need for modern scientific methods like a ‘litmus test’, and they must be introduced in this investigation which can quickly help the security forces to ‘read’ the mind of the arrested suspects and gain meaningful insights which can help bring down dangerous criminal networks and terrorist organizations.

WHY ICOGNATIVE?

Brainwave Science, a Massachusetts based company has the solution to the needs of all agencies which are into counter-terrorism, national security, immigration, border control, drug, and human trafficking and law enforcement. This cutting-edge solution is called iCognative. It is a break-through of an for the intelligence gathering and investigation techniques in use today.

This game-changing science detects concealed information stored in the human brain. It does so by measuring brainwaves and quickly providing results. Forensic science has transformed from using fingerprints, DNA profiling to link a suspect to a specific crime. iCognative addresses a fundamental drawback in the above two methodologies. DNA and fingerprints are uncovered in only 1-2% of all cases. To collect such evidence like DNA, the investigators need to collect and preserve the biological samples. This is not only cost and labour-intensive but also time-consuming.

iCognative attacks the problem at its very root: i.e. by indicating if crime-related information and details are present in the brain of the test subject or not.

Brainwave Science’s endeavour is to remove coercion and torture from the interrogation of suspects. By introducing a scientific method in the form of a iCognative test, Brainwave Science has brought in reliability and impeccable accuracy to the field of intelligence gathering. What is most interesting is that iCognative is 99.9% accurate and extremely reliable in its results? Unlike a lie detector test whose results depend on the person who administers the test, the iCognative test is very objective. In fact, there is no interaction between the test taker and the official who administers the test. iCognative test is based on the measurement of the brain responses of the test subject. Here the personal opinions of the test administrator do not affect the outcome.

There are no known counter-measures to the test. In other words, no one has ever beat or fooled the iCognative test. Consequently, it does not report any ‘false positives’ or any ‘false negatives’ This is a very important characteristic of any forensic screening tool. The investigators can be sure that iCognative tool helps to reliably identify the guilty and the exonerate the innocent.

The iCognative test can be run on arrested suspects. The information gathered during the investigation of this case can be used as input or stimuli for the test. iCognative test needs stimuli in the form of pictures, words, and phrases which are related to the crime. These represent details which the perpetrator or a witness will know because of their close association with the crime. In this case, propaganda material which these persons might have access to, phone call records, text message exchanges with terror handlers, records of suspicions location which these persons have gone to, CCTV footage of the persons at checkpoints, suspicious financial transaction records and communication, etc.

When the stimuli listed above is shown to the men, they will be wearing a specialized headset. This headset will record their brain responses to each stimulus and will transfer it to a computer system. Here, the input will be instantaneously analyzed and after the usual 45-minute test is over, the output in the form of either ‘information present’ or ‘information absent’ will be presented to the test administrator.

Using this test, the investigators will know if these terrorists are aware of incriminating knowledge related to the crime, whether they have any associations with known terrorist organizations, etc. Moreover, the iCognative test is so advanced that it can detect EOD/IED bomb knowledge, uncover high-value individuals, establish links between a suspect and known terrorist networks, places and events.

The level of involvement of a person in terrorist activity can be determined using iCognative. Even if a person has undertaken terrorism training years or decades ago and is now inactive, his brain would not be able to lie to iCognative system. This is especially useful to detect terrorists at border control, immigration, refugee camps and among asylum seekers.

All in all, iCognative is a versatile, customizable and automated tool which is applicable to 85-90% of all civil and criminal cases.

To conduct interrogation and investigations of these arrested persons in a time-bound manner and to uncover the maximum amount of information, the investigative agencies must try out iCognative, presented only by Brainwave Science.
