Suspect Detection Systems Inc., a leading developer of counter-terror and crime prevention technology, announced earlier this week that its Cogito4M Military Grade Technology has successfully completed a two-year research and development project. The system was developed through the accumulation of defense field experience in Israel.

Cogito4M enables military and homeland security organizations to interrogate terror suspects while operating in precarious field conditions. The system has been designed to resolve one of the challenges of today’s modern war - specifically the accurate detection and capture of terrorists hiding among civilians.

According to the press release, the automated interrogation system can be operated by a single soldier with very basic computer training and without knowledge of interrogation techniques or local languages. Currently, Cogito4M is programmed to communicate through English, Spanish, Afghani, Iraqi, Hindi, and Arabic languages and is encoded with algorithm data relevant local terrorists’ cultural knowledge bases.

“As we see from events in Iraq and Afghanistan, militaries fighting in modern combat zones require multilingual tools for the rapid field interrogation of terrorists and enemy forces using civilian shelter,” stated Suspect Detection Systems Ltd. CEO Shabtai Shoval. “The Cogito4M rapid interrogation tool can collect vital tactical intelligence vis-a-vis possible ambushes, mines or other potential threats.”

“The SDS management team is utilizing extensive security and military combat experience in Israel to counter terrorists’ knowledge and behavior patterns. We are leveraging this expertise to create state-of the-art military grade interrogation technology that aids the war on terror and saves lives,” Shoval added.
