Middletown Press reports:

Southern Connecticut State University senior Steve Abbagnaro of Durham is developing technology for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security through his company, Queralt Inc.

He is graduating in May with a Bachelor of Science degree in computer science.

Queralt, which Abbagnaro co-founded in 2010, specializes in using radio frequency identification technology to track objects or people in a closed environment, such as a building or campus.

  1. DHS is working on an RFID biometric ID badge that knows when you go the bathroom!

    “The iQ3 is input agnostic, which means it can process all kinds of data. From location data from RFID tags, temperature information, personal identity smart-cards, biometric data, or virtual data coming from an existing application- iQ3 does it all. By combining all of this information into one place, iQ3 is able to paint a better virtual picture of your environment.”

    ‘For a better picture of YOUR environment’ the RFID badge will even know your temperature! DHS wants to spy on your every movement even while you go to the bathroom! They’ll even know which computer you’re at.

    Employees are issued an RFID-enabled badge that a computer reads while they are at work. As they go about their day, the system collects information — when they arrive, eat lunch, or go to the restroom, for instance, or which computers they log into. The system then uses the information to establish patterns and issue an alert if something is amiss.

    How long before they incorporate this technology into drivers licenses? Can you say RealID? DHS’s national drivers license tracking program! When they’re installed in your drivers license they’ll even know which vehicle your driving!
