Real Bourne Identity: US Navy developing enhanced 'super soldiers' with boosted brainpower

SUPER SEALS: The troops will be able to call on advanced brainpower Donald Trump is looking to improve his military as the US faces potential conflict in numerous areas of the world.

A worrying Pentagon report revealed that the US would lose in a World War 3 scenario against superpowers Russia and China, due to their superior technology.

To combat this, the US is looking to enhance their troops. PREPARING FOR WAR: Trump is on a mission to upgrade America’s military A projectile fired from an electromagnetic rail gun. Rail Guns use an electro magnet to propel a projectile at speeds up to 2500 meters per second. Their latest development sees soldiers boosted through electrical currents directly applied to the brain through a headset, giving the US troops advanced brain power.

US rear admiral Tim Szymanski said: "In experiments, people who were watching these screens… their ability to concentrate would fall off in about 20 minutes.

"But they did studies whereby a little bit electrical stimulation was applied, and they were able to maintain the same peak performance for 20 hours."

A Navy command spokesman added: "Earlier this year, Naval Special Warfare Units, working with DIUx, began a specific cognitive enhancement project with a small group of volunteers to test and evaluate achieving higher performance through the use of neuro-simulation technology."

The headsets would work by stimulating the brain to enter a hyper-elasticity state, giving the user the ability to learn more and at a quicker rate.

Physical benefits were also found in developing explosive power by using the headsets, which look like a pair of Beats by Dre headphones. A truck is seen carrying parts required to set up the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) missile defense system that had arrived at the Osan Air Base in Pyeongtaek, South Korea Adm Szymanski said that the US was also testing a number of pharmaceutical enhancements.

But he also added that any new equipment would be rigorously tested before use.
