FOUR Different Devices:
emphasis on tracking



The year 2004 was also an important year for VeriChip, the human implantable chip that Digital Angel manufactures for its sister company, Applied Digital Inc. VeriChip, an RFID microchip for humans, was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for medical applications in October 2004 and made headlines around the world.

1.PASSIVE - INTERNAL : VeriChip ID
Subdermal ID chip (under the skin) with unique identifying number.
This chip is a PASSIVE rfid and has to be energized by a scanner ( reader ) . It must be queried from an outside source.
We are Biblically warned not to receive this chip (mark) in our right hand or forehead.

Rev. 13: 16-18 and Rev. 14: 9-11.

"Bio Bond" -- Please see "Hazards"
ADS ( Applied Digital Solutions ) .... "its trademarked "BioBond," a polymer sheath used to coat the glass-encased chip, causing fibrocytes and collagen fibers to grow around the chip, preventing migration of the chip through body tissue.
"

"and there fell a noisome and grevious sore upon the men (persons) which had the mark of the beast." Rev. 16:2 ....
"and they gnawed their tongues for pain"... "because of their pains and sores"
Rev. 16: 10, 11


The internal subdermal VeriChip cannot be tracked with GPS, Galileo or Beidou
It is an internal PASSIVE rfid chip.
In order to be tracked by Global Positioning Systems, the rfid chip must be ACTIVE.
ACTIVE rfid chips are too large for implantation, and are worn externally.

Possible uses for passive chip in the future when placed in the hand: Spot-TRACKING

Tracking Airline passengers with Passive rfid
The StreamThru system uses passive UHF EPC RFID tags attached to boarding passes to help manage the flow of airline passengers through the airport. It also uses cellular and bar code technology.

With StreamThru, passengers register their mobile phone numbers when purchasing their tickets and are given boarding passes with RFID tags attached. The goal is to create two-way communication between passengers and airline or airport operators, so as to improve the flow of passengers through the airport.

Mantic Point says it will market the StreamThru passenger-management system, which was built on Mantic's own Chaperone flow management application. The latter was developed with health-care and supply chain applications in mind

To detect passengers, RFID readers (interrogators ...Ed : sensors ) will be placed at key choke points, such as passport control and departure gates. The StreamThru system can then determine if a given passenger is likely to be late for his or her flight.

The StreamThru application, Mantic maintains, can not only track passengers through the airport, but also keep passengers informed by sending relevant personalized flight information to their wireless phones automatically

Microchip Implants -- Jon E. Dougherty ( WND )
A national identification system via microchip implants could be achieved in two stages," she (Elaine M. Ramish) said.
"Upon introduction as a voluntary system, the microchip implantation will appear to be palatable.
After there is a familiarity with the procedure and a knowledge of its benefits,
implantation would be mandatory."

Ramish noted that a few U.S. firms were already developing, or had developed, implantable biometric devices capable of
1. "read only,
2.  read-write and
3. read-write with tracking" abilities.
IBM, Hughes Aircraft, and Dallas Semiconductor are among several firms

..someday Congress may be faced with the decision to mandate the implementation of such technology
But the concept of government-mandated microchip implants is reprehensible,"
he [ George Getz ] added.

INDOOR TRACKING - Battery only as needed ( longer life ) --  ACTIVE Tags ( for people )
" We're pleased to showcase Sovereign Tracking Systems, LLC, ... to track and manage inventory for all kinds of items, including such high-value items such as medical equipment, shipping containers, and even patients
Sovereign is a privately held, NJ-based [ Ed: New Jersey ] cutting-edge technology company specializing in real-time asset management tracking technologies, supported by inexpensive active radio frequency identification tags (RFID). The interest of mPhase and its subsidiary, AlwaysReady Inc., is that all active tags and many other types of sensor devices require a power supply for use. mPhase's Smart Nanobattery can allow for the tag to remain in a quiescent state until needed, providing power on demand.
mPhase's new Smart Nanobattery architecture promises an energy source that can be packaged in various configurations, with shelf life lasting decades, yet still able to be activated almost instantaneously on demand. This has a distinct relevance with active RFID applications. Various battery designs based on this technology may deliver a new and unique component for system design across many fields, including defense, healthcare, industrial and consumer electronics.

Sovereign's CEO William A. Robinson was one of the founding fathers of the "Global Positioning Systems" (GPS) technology
Inspired by the limitation of the GPS technology (it would not track under cover), Mr. Robinson began to formulate a concept for a reverse GPS, in which small "Satellites" (readers) could be placed in an indoor environment [ Ed: also an outdoor environment ] allowing for tracking undercover.

Additionally, the company is working on prototype ultra-sensitive magnetometers that promise orders of magnitude increases in sensitivity as compared with available un-cooled sensors. More information is available at the mPhase Web site at www.mPhaseTech.com

Long-range "vicinity - read" tags for ID cards

PRINCETON JUNCTION, N.J. — The U.S. Department of Homeland Security ... have announced programs to develop and issue enhanced state driver's licenses that could be used as acceptable alternative documents for crossing U.S. land and sea borders. According to the Smart Card Alliance, those programs pose “serious privacy and security concerns.”  

Homeland Security has proposed a long-range vicinity-read RFID technology solution.

ACTIVE chips monitired by GPS
--  Nancy Whelan
Ed: individual's location tracked 24 / 7
"There may be other implications of microchipping humans. I wonder what impact a microchip would have had on Jesse Davis, the young Ohio mother who recently went missing and was later found murdered. Had she been implanted with a microchip with GPS capability, her whereabouts would have been known immediately to authorities. "
Microchips are not without controversy too. The book of Revelation (13: 15-18) in the Bible prophesizes that the "Number of the Beast" will be placed in a person's forehead or right hand without which a person cannot buy or sell. And, some Christians believe implanted microchips are a fulfillment of this prophecy.

Xmark --- Stanley Healthcare, a softeware for hospital telemetry --- has new HUGS
XMark Announces New Version of RFID-based Infant Protection System

Xmark, a Stanley Healthcare company that sells RFID-based products and services designed to help track infants in hospitals, as well as other patients and physical assets, has announced a new version of its Hugs infant-protection system.
Hugs 6
also includes the ability to run standard reports, as well as create custom reports. The revamped, upgraded Hugs infant-protection system comes nearly a year after Stanley Works, a worldwide supplier of tools, engineered solutions and access and security systems, acquired Xmark from VeriChip Corp. (see Stanley Bolsters RFID Portfolio With VeriChip's Ex-Subsidiary).

Spyware and less vigilance
"Ironically, relying on RFID technology could end up making a rare occurrence more likely," Albrecht said. "Once hospital staffers rely on computer systems to track the human inventory in their care, they become less vigilant."

We actually investigated an abduction that involved a baby who was wearing an RFID ankle bracelet at the time of the abduction," Albrecht said. "What happened was a woman dressed up in hospital scrubs. Even though the other staffers in the maternity ward did not recognize this woman, nobody reported her, because they thought the RFID system would take care of any problem."
The woman figured out how to turn the RFID system off, Albrecht said, 'and she just walked right out of the hospital carrying the baby, without anybody stopping her."

Hi- Tech bracelet "Hugs and Kisses"
The bracelets play a lullaby every time the baby is placed near mom. Also, the microchips -- embedded in a small music box on the plastic band -- are wired to a sophisticated system that locks down the maternity unit's elevators and stairwells if the baby is taken too close to the exits without mom.
The hospital's alarm will sound even if dad, who doesn't get a bracelet, tries to take the baby off the unit, if only for a walk, said Kate Austin, director of Women and Children Services at the Pontiac hospital.
The system, manufactured by the Delray Beach, Fla.-based VeriChip Corp., is controlled through computers at the nurses station. It is new this year at St. Joseph Mercy
The alarm will also sound if the bracelet loosens, or is cut off, she said. So far, there haven't been any lockdowns

"Wherify" for children
In addition, Digital Angel Corp., a subsidiary of Applied Digital Solutions, is developing a GPS-enabled suite of products called Digital Angel (http://www.digitalangel.net). Not only will Digital Angel devices be able to pinpoint an exact location, but they will also measure biological and medical parameters, such as body temperature and blood oxygen levels, using biosensor technology.
Digital Angel also plans to use other sensors, such as an EKG (electrocardiograph, an instrument for measuring heart abnormalities) and an EEG (electroencephalograph, a device that records electrical activity in the brain).
The first generation of these devices will come in the form of a wristwatch.

In the future, we can expect to see a merger of the two devices [ Ed: VeriChip and Digital Angel] . In South America, the VeriChip is already being bundled with Digital Angel so that in abduction cases, police and others can monitor a kidnapped victim's condition and track his location. In order for this capability to enter the United States, however, the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) must approve the VeriChip for use. Currently, the product is still under evaluation.

"My Child ", Hugs, HALO ... 1,200 sold
DELRAY BEACH, Fla., April 18, 2007 -- VeriChip Corporation , a provider of RFID systems for healthcare and patient-related needs, announced today that it has sold its 1,200th RFID-based system for the protection of newborn infants and pediatric patients. This includes systems sold under the Hugs(R), HALO(R) and MyChild(R) brands.
VeriChip believes that it has the largest installation base of infant protection systems of any company in the industry http://www.sys-con.com/read/363327.htm

HALO -- Fixed asset-tracking
Facility floor plan embedded in software provides visual indication of the location of a patient, staff member or asset.  HALO smoothly integrates into your facility’s day-to-day operations, and the system can be configured to send alarm notifications to one, multiple, or all networked workstations.

HUGS - HALO now in Puerto Rico
VeriChip's Hugs or HALO infant protection systems are in use in 30 of the 42 birthing hospitals in Puerto Rico listed by the American Hospital Association.
http://www.techweb.com/showPressRelease.jhtml?articleID=X594959

Portable Asset-Tracking 
Rather than relying on a network of fixed receivers, the asset location system utilizes portable receivers to collect RFID messages, which the system uses to identify the unique ID of the asset as well as its room location.
By not requiring the installation of numerous fixed receivers throughout a facility, such a system could substantially lower the initial cost of implementing RFID technology."
VeriChip sells passive RFID systems for identification purposes and active RFID systems for local-area location and identification purposes.

"Operation Lost and Found" Locator Bracelets ; Finder Chips

Finder chips can be put under the skin, NBC4's Dr. Bruce Hensel reported. But for people who object to the idea of an implant, another approach is to put a bracelet on them.

But now, Hayes worries a bit less because of the bracelet around his wife's ankle.
"It's a radio transmitter that puts out a radio signal," Bob Hayes said. Hayes got the bracelet from authorities in South Dakota, where the couple lives. His wife's transmitter has a unique frequency, so, if she goes missing, he alerts authorities immediately, and police can use a receiving device to locate her.

The couple is now in California visiting family. Hayes worried when he found out Fresno County doesn't offer the program. But he soon learned Madera County does. It's called "Operation Lost and Found." The sheriff's department started the program two years ago. Sheriff John Anderson said around 30 Madera County residents suffering from mental challenges like Alzheimer's or dementia currently have the bracelets

Assetrac -- XMark : total telemetry
VeriChip will present its Assetrac system, featuring the smallest asset tag on the market, which is available in response to growing demand from the healthcare industry for an effective and affordable solution for tracking and protecting high-value mobile medical assets. Poor asset utilization results not only in lost equipment and lost productivity, but also has a negative impact on patient care through prolonged wait times due to lack of equipment.

In addition to the smallest tag on the market, the system also offers the most flexible deployment options. It can cover a single area, like the
Emergency Department, or an entire campus. It also capitalizes on the existing IT infrastructure to reduce installation costs, and can even be interfaced with Wi-Fi and asset management technologies.

Based in Ottawa, Ontario, ... Xmark Corporation has provided Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) solutions to identify, locate, and protect people and assets in healthcare environments.

3. Semi - Passive Rfid ( have batteries )

EU proposes guidelines for RFID usage

"Semi-passive RFID tags have built-in batteries and do not require energy induced from the reader to power the microchip. This allows them to function with much lower signal power levels and over greater distances than passive tags. They are, however, considerably more expensive. "
http://www.cio.com.au/index.php/id;823007558;fp;2;fpid;1


4. The System wants desperately to combine both features of passive and active rfid subdermally. God has restrained them from internal GPS tracking. Praise God.

Spot-tracking with ORB and eXI wireless, called Xmark :
However, the System wants to work around GPS and locate by communicating at specific location points wherever the wireless rfid chip has passed a sensor, placed in the wilderness, etc. This is not the same as visual tracking, however by having communication points of movement sporadically placed, the System can have an idea of where you are.

R & D : 2 chips : an internal passive rfid ( VeriChip )
and an external active rfid ( Digital Angel )

Data on chip ( internal ) ; GPS locator applied externally --  Verichip + Digital Angel
The chip, which is slightly larger than a grain of rice and transmits two to three sentences of data, can be read by a scanner up to four feet away. It is injected into the subject's forearm or shoulder under local anesthesia during an outpatient procedure and leaves no mark, Bolton said.
The second product, Digital Angel, which combines a global satellite positioning system and monitoring service, was designed with people who stray in mind, such as parolees or Alzheimer's patients. The system combines a
watch and a device the size of a pack of cigarettes that clips onto a waist band or a belt like a pager.

TWO - WAY Communication System .... rapid response:
The sensors etc. detect the VeriChip ( or any external contactless rfid chip) and then they transmit the ID number through the eXI wireless telecommunication system to the ORBCOMM
low earth orbit ( LEO ) satellite system.
The ORBCOMM satellite then sends the ID number to a central database, which opens up the stored data and then in turn transmits that data ( any and all stored information on that individual ) to any mobile unit ( PDA, laptop, cell phone, handhelds etc. ) and thus they can track and monitor your location in real-time mobility.

Should that individual be targeted by the Powers that be, he can be stopped in his tracks, as it were,
since Dynagate ( portable access control ) can keep him from entering a zone,
( with or without a physical gate ).

Satellites tracking those who are chipped ?

"They worry that satellites could track anyone with a chip easily and wonder with concern what other uses the chips could be put to.
Turkey is still far from this level of regimentation, but around the world there are now almost two billion chipped cards sold this year. Seventy percent of those chips will be used for security. In Europe, the chips are being placed in passports, and the US has gone to extremes by placing them under the skin. In this way, everybody could be watched by satellite through these chips.

The chip can keep medical records, (blood pressure, allergy, operations that the patient had gone through) which are loaded later through the codes it contains in its memory. The data within chips can be easily obtained through scanners in the health center.
Chip usage is not confined to the US. A new resolution has been reached whereby the United Nations International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) is now bringing a new international standard for 27 countries in the European Union (EU) to switch to chipped passports by early 2006. The US will apply visa procedures for all those who do not hold a chipped passport.

Ads attempts internal GPS tracking device
PALM BEACH, FL–– Applied Digital Solutions, Inc., an advanced technology development company, today announced that it has developed and successfully field tested a working prototype of what the company believes is the first-ever subdermal GPS “personal location device” (PLD). Field testing and follow-up laboratory testing of the disk-shaped prototype confirm that the specially designed antenna and the induction-based power-recharging method function properly.

The dimensions of this initial PLD prototype are 2.5 inches in diameter by 0.5 inches in depth, roughly the size of a pacemaker. As the process of miniaturization proceeds in the coming months, the Company expects to be able to shrink the size of the device to at least one-half and perhaps to as little as one-tenth the current size. [ Ed: the size of an injectable chip ]

Keith Bolton and Digital Angel
The result of the two moves, and the research that followed, produced what Digital Angel claims is a first-ever combination of "advanced sensor technology" that can communicate biological and location data in real time using satellite GPS technology and Internet-integrated ground stations.
The Internet link means caregivers can view the data on any Web-enabled desktop, laptop or wireless device. The password-protected Digital Angel site provides the vital-sign data; location information is cross-referenced, and viewable, via the Digital Angel mapping engine

Nothing is needed to "attach" the devices to the skin; the sensors react to the infrared radiation naturally emitted from the body. For now, Digital Angel devices can read and return data on body temperature and pulse rate. Next-generation models will provide EEG and EKG, as well as glucose monitoring – "all vital data needed to monitor the condition of at-risk patients," the company notes
http://www.10meters.com/digitalangel.html

Prototype
The disc-shaped "personal location device" measures 6.35 centimetres in diameter and 1.27 centimetres in depth - roughly the same size as a pace-maker.
Currently it consists of an antenna to receive signals from the satellite constellation that comprises the Global Positioning System and an induction-based power-recharging system. The latter should make it possible to recharge the device's batteries from outside the user's body.

Eventually the device will need to connect to a cell phone network if it is to relay the satellite-determined position of its host to another person.
Applied Digital Solutions (ADS) hopes the device will appeal to people

No GPS in VeriChip
Obviously, there is no such thing as a GPS transceiver that can be implanted with a hypodermic needle as a tiny microchip. Such a gizmo would be as big as a pacemaker, and would have to be implanted surgically.

Angel of Death...from WND mail bag--- a MUST read
"I wonder how much thought the proponents of this wondrous new technology have given to what would happen if this stuff were compromised. In other words, what if hostile forces, terrorists, kidnappers, governments got hold of the ability to ID and trace and track the chips?
In this age when organized crime can obtain valid, bonafide verifiable badges and ID cards, it is not impossible. Not to think what a fully financed hostile government's intelligence net could do. Instead of being able to rescue a kidnapped multi-millionaire's son, or an important politician, this technology could lead kidnappers to their target, guaranteeing success.

Imagine every soldier being chipped … and an enemy force being able to turn those chips on the soldiers carrying them, and be able to plot the whereabouts and troop concentrations of our forces! A smart enemy would ensure they had a long running series of stunning minor victories instead of a major win. Destroy our forces by attrition. How much fun would it be if you were the president of a major corporation (who was chipped) with serious political opposition in countries where your facilities were located overseas, and they decided to begin hunting you?

This has already happened with animals. A number of years ago the U.S. Forest Service, put tracking collars on bears to monitor their activities, migration, numbers, etc. Illegal bear hunters obtained tracking equipment and frequencies of the trackers. The bear poachers enjoyed such success the Forest Service had to recapture the remaining bears and remove the collars.
Digital Angel my eye … sounds more like Digital Death! Just ask the bears. S. Connelly

ads Sensors -- location and body info
.... 1" x 1"
Bolton said that today’s Digital Angel products use the smallest GPS receiver on the market, measuring about
1 inch by 1 inch in diameter.
The GPS component of the product delivers information about the location of its wearers to the Digital Angel system.

A sensor in the current products can sound alarms when wearers cross geographic boundaries, such as a five-mile radius perimeter. The criminal justice industry has shown interest in the technology for prisoners under house arrest or on parole, Bolton said. It’s also perfect for sufferers of Alzheimer's disease, who often wander from homes and hospitals and get lost, and for parents to attach to children.

Another sensor passes along body-temperature information. In development are sensors that will send vital sign information like pulse, blood oxygen and glucose levels, Bolton said.

The fourth devices concerns SENSORS which are far much smaller than a chip. Sensors are all around us, and are strategically placed within the environment. Digital Angel is trying to make SENSORS for our bodies.

Thermo-Life Bio-sensor for humans. It is an implanted self-generating battery within the human body that measures life functions in real-time for immediate monitoring and analysis.
