A new system, dubbed HandShake by its developers, may scan the brains of U.S. soldiers and their allies in combat theaters to asses signs of disloyalty, potentially protecting them from insider attacks.

HandShake was developed by a company named Veritas, according to Activist Post, and is indicative of a larger trend in neuroscience that sees brain research applied in areas of predictive behavior. The technology utilizes specialized brain scans which can be used to monitor both U.S. troops and our allies for signs of disloyalty.

Though instances of insider attacks are statistically low in the U.S. Military, new interest is being taken in evaluating potential extremist threats from within. Veritas Scientific markets the HandShake technology, which was developed by a former U.S. Army counterintelligence agent, as a solution to the problem.

Using HandShake, a soldier would place a specially designed helmet on a subject, whether another military member or ally, who would then be shown a series of images. Electrodes fitted within the helmet are capable of reading electromagnetic signals in the brain while also scanning for blood flow changes. While most of the images shown would be benign in nature, some would be designed to trigger a reaction in the brain of a person who poses a potential insider threat, Defense One claims.
