IDF Chief Rabbinate Using High Tech to Identify Bodies


idffThe IDF Chief Rabbinate is moving to high tech to assist and facilitate in identifying bodies in the future. Ten specialized tablet computers have been ordered, each containing an application that will permit using fingerprints towards identifying a dead body in seconds.

The computers will be linked to the database of soldiers which contains their information, which is obtained as part of the induction process in the Bakum base.

If a victim’s condition does not permit obtaining an ID using fingerprints, the tablets will also be equipped to identify a victim using dental records.
