A Military-Funded Biosensor Could Be the Future of Pandemic Detection

Why are pandemics so hard to stop? Often it’s because the disease moves faster than people can be tested for it. The Defense Department is helping to fund a new study to determine whether an under-the-skin biosensor can help trackers keep up — by detecting flu-like infections even before their symptoms begin to show. Its maker, Profusa, says the sensor is on track to try for FDA approval by early next year.

The sensor has two parts. One is a 3mm string of hydrogel, a material whose network of polymer chains is used in some contact lenses and other implants. Inserted under the skin with a syringe, the string includes a specially engineered molecule that sends a fluorescent signal outside of the body when the body begins to fight an infection. The other part is an electronic component attached to the skin. It sends light through the skin, detects the fluorescent signal and generates another signal that the wearer can send to a doctor, website, etc. It’s like a blood lab on the skin that can pick up the body’s response to illness before the presence of other symptoms, like coughing.

The announcement comes as the United States grapples with COVID-19, a respiratory illness that can present in flu-like symptoms such as coughing and shortness of breath. The military is taking a leading role in vaccine research, Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Mark Milley told reporters at the Pentagon on Monday. “Our military research labs are working feverishly around the horn here to try to come up with a vaccine. So we’ll see how that develops over the next couple of months,” Milley said. U.S. troops themselves are also at risk. A U.S. soldier in South Korea became the first U.S. service member to contract the virus, the Wall Street Journal reported in February.

Profusa’s newest funded study, which the company announced on Tuesday, will test how well the sensor can detect influenza outbreaks up to three weeks before it’s possible to detect them using current methods. Because the gel doesn’t actually emit any signal, it wouldn’t give away a soldier’s position, so the sensor could be used in sensitive settings like behind enemy lines,  Profusa CEO Ben Hwang said.

Hwang said his company has received grants from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA, since around 2011. “They gave us grant money to help our research and as we prove out a certain milestone, as we de-risk the technology, they give us a second phrase and a third phase and provide support,” he said. “Their support has transitioned from grants into these types of programs that create real-world evidence.”

Hwang said DARPA is helping the company reach out to other outfits within the Defense Department that might use the device on troops or servicemembers. That could include partnerships with U.S. Special Operations Command, for instance, or, Indo-Pacific Command. He declined to comment on conversations with specific military customers.

  1. flu-like infections has been taken cre of by God given immune mechanism. why is that this sitanic control freak intervine in divine order in the name of ‘science’ /plandemic and medicaly rape God’s creation?

  2. Invent a pandemic or hoax virus as the camouflage to advance their real ulterior agenda of terrorizing, coercing & injecting the goy herd with nanotech/cybernetic material, so the mongrel Jewish Overlords (Rothschild, Musk, Gates, Kurzweil, Zuckerberg, Brin, Page etc) can have total control over their minds/bodies. But don’t tell the goy morons that, tell them its something that will ‘protect their health’ or ‘improve their lives’ & they’ll buy it; just as they bought that some Jew was their ‘messiah’ for over a thousand years..

  3. I don’t see a pandemic. But I do see obfuscation and outright gargantuan lies. Real people, please WAKE UP, you have nothing to lose and your now fleeting humanity to claim back.

  4. “The Defense Department is helping to fund a new study to determine whether an under-the-skin biosensor can help trackers keep up — by detecting flu-like infections even before their symptoms begin to show.” How wonderful! They are not thinking of protecting us from a bioweapon designed to kill us like the Black Plague, but chipping us to protect us from the spread of flu-like symptoms, like if we have a cough or a cold. Any such tracking device clearly is to track people in an AI grid. Where the NWO global high-tech network spreads out more and more over the planet, no longer do they expect to be fighting other nations. Rather, as is the case with the 9/11 psyop one of the main purposes was mass surveillance of the people through the US DHS and the NSA using terrorism as the pretext.

    ““Our military research labs are working feverishly around the horn here to try to come up with a vaccine. So we’ll see how that develops over the next couple of months,” Milley said.” So the very same military which developed the Covid virus at its Fort Detrick biowarfare lab in Maryland some 5 or 6 years ago, and then farmed out its nefarious work to the Chapel Hill lab at the University of North Carolina, where it went to a number of other labs, including a lab in Winnipeg, Canada, and “apparently” last year to the Wuhan lab, is now feverously trying to find a vaccination? Why? First of all the virus is no worse than any other flu virus that has hit us over the last few years and for those with more severe symptoms, where they use HCQ, the victims are safe. Why the feverish search for a vaccination when everyone who is awake in the world knows that the virus nether requires any lockdowns or any vaccination to keep people “safe”?

    The US Military has an overweening interest in this virus and likely is in bed with big pharma as it prepares to use US troops to vaccinate its population with some vaccine they have probably had on the shelf for the past 5 years, plus they appear now to be manufacturing fake reasons to chip people with the tracking devices. They appear to be waiting until the media and the government can inflate a second wave to panic proportions, with the majority of people economically dependent on the dole from friendly big brother, while the technocrats coordinate everyone to be tagged by the vaccinations into their Microsoft programed AI grids for CONTROL OF THE ENEM, which is us, with all of our bad habits of social mingling and going against the pretext of SUSTAINABILITY and the NWO GOD OF EQUALITY.

    Not only did the US military have a hand in kicking off the entire pandemic with the consent of a host of other nations, but they have likely been coordinating the entire psyop from their various secret bunkers:
    “U.S. military command teams in charge of protecting homeland security are being isolated in the infamous Cheyenne mountain bunker where they will remain ‘sealed off’ until the coronavirus pandemic passes.” http://www.thetruthseeker.co.uk/?p=204693 Daily Mail March 28, 2020
