Special Ops Wants Ways to Override Broadcasters

“The U.S. Special Operations Command wants to find technology that would allow it to locate AM and FM radio signals in a specific area and then override those signals to send propaganda messages,” USA Today reports.

“The Pentagon has long used radio stations around the world to help spread its message and turn adversaries into allies, if only temporarily… This latest technology could give U.S. forces the ability to target audiences in certain areas with a specific message. It would be part of what the Pentagon calls Military Information Support Operations (MISO), which is the latest term for what used to be called psychological operations.”
