Military Project Called the BEAST (for Battle Engagement and Tracking Targets) Has a Smiley Face Emoticon at the End of the Acronym

Psychological manipulation? Passive aggressiveness? Psychopathic expression?

Can someone tell me why a military project named the BEAST – which stands for “Battle Engagement And Simulation Tracking” or “Battle Engagement Area Simulator/Tracker”, has a smiley face emoticon at the end of the acronym?

Even as far back as 2005/2006 – where this page was captured on the webarchive for the first time, has that rather ominous smiley face emoji next to it.

So… what is the reason for this? Did the person who entered this in the website just think, “Wow! “Battle engagment and simulation tracking”? That sounds amazing! So amazing, that I feel the need to express my excitement and joy at this prospect by adding in a smiley face so others can share in my joy!”

Was this an actual legitimate entry, from the initiators of this certain project? Did the data entry person add it in out of sarcasm/distaste?

I don’t know. But the fact that it’s there, seems a bit foreboding and EXTREMELY out of place. Since I’ve been on the topic of A.I., perhaps the computer program read this particular line and felt the need to add it in itself. (That’s, of course, a sardonic assertion, with no hint of seriousness, but in light of the technological advancements and interest in “unlocking the true potential of A.I.”, I wouldn’t doubt it.)

Now, to get into the nitty gritty of this “BEAST” project, what does it entail?

Well… that’s where I came across an even deeper rabbit hole of sorts.

BEAST project started by DARPA

Firstly, according to a researchgate (pdf) publication about the BEAST program, written in October 1990:

“The present report is intended as a major progress report of a project started originally under DARPA/ISTO sponsorship and now continuing under direct SDIO support.”

[ ] (page 6)

It’s main goals are the following:

The project’s purposes are to successfully apply parallel and supercomputer technology to the Strategic Defense Initiative Organization (SDIO) battle management tracking problems, and to develop software and algorithms appropriate for new, highly parallel supercomputer architectures.

The preliminary implementation of BEAST performs five “operations”:

      1. Model conflict scenarios (ground truth) consisting of tens of thousands of targets, decoys, sensors, weapon satellites, and other objects in orbit or on ballistic trajectories,
      2. Simulate in a single system the sampling of ground truth by many loosely coupled sensors to produce contact reports from all sensors in a parallel fashion,
      3. Construct and maintain in real time the necessary composite data structures containing reports from multiple sensors and tracks as the sensor reports are generated,
      4. Process and analyze the data, producing projections of tracks tagged with estimated target identities and generating new track automatically,
      5. Model interactions and decisions by battle management analysis systems using these parallel data bases constructed in MLG form.

The last item in the list includes many important aspects of the SDIO battle management problem which the BEAST project is only treating in a cursory way. These parts are evaluating tactical threats to defensive sensors, communication and weapon platform satellites, weapons allocation against detected targets, kill assessments, strategic assessment, and target discrimination.

Oops. Don’t forget to add the ” :- ) “. That’s what ties it all together.

MARCC – Multiple Automated Readout Computer Chip

Now if it ended there, that would be bad enough. But no. There’s more.

After looking up more information about this BEAST project, it led me to this interesting inquiry that was allegedly asked on January 3rd, 2000. Granted it came from a website labeled “rumormillnews” so take that as you will, but the fact that there is indeed a program called BEAST with the same acronym that is mentioned on the rumormillnews is intriguing enough.

However, after reading the contents, it mentioned a couple of other interesting leads to go down.

Source: [ ] “Project Tessera/MARCC”

“To Whom It May Concern:

I would like to place this into the “the mix” and see if anyone has additional info on this project.

The military super computer (BEAST – Battle Engagement Arena Simulation and Tracking) are to be used along with a tracking chip called Multiple Automated Readout Computer Chip (MARCC).

This has been done under the code name: Project Tessera. Tessera is Latin for-a-tag that is worn by a slave to mark ownership. The tag is also used to maintain the master’s accounts at the market place while the slave conducts business on behalf of his master.

It has been reported that G.I.’s are now currently tagged/implanted with the MARCC chip. The current plans are to expand this tagging/implanting to the general population (the greater arena of slaves). This would effectively strip away all that remains of human freedoms.

Anyone with personal knowledge or factual evidence regarding the above mentioned project, is requested to kindly step forward – elaborate and enlighten us.

T J Hines”

So yes. It references a “MARCC”, in addition to the BEAST. But surely there’s no way the MARCC is legitimate as well, right?

Although there is a slight difference in the acronym (chip vs. card, for example), the concept remains the same. “Multi-Automated Reader Card” – under the Government & Military filter.

And for additional reference, while there are not many websites at all that mentions this particular MARC(C), I did manage to find the following:

Multi-Technology Automated Reader Card

Agency: Department of Defense

Pilot Project Description:

The Department of Defense (DOD) is testing a smartcard as a multi-functional, cross-service utility card that will be carried by each military service member. The DOD has functional requirements for both a card that is a portable, updatable medium, and a static medium card that can be used as a key to a variety of databases. The Multi-Technology Automated Reader Card (MARC) card is being tested to determine if it can satisfactorily fulfill both these requirements for a number of different personnel related services.

So it would seem as if the MARC(C) that is mentioned in conjunction with the BEAST system/technology both originate from the DOD/DARPA institutions. And they have been heavily invested in implanting everyone with a microchip (under the false guise of medical/health reasons).

DARPA uses mainstream media to flaunt implantable microchip “to stop coronavirus in its tracks”

Considering that the same company who has been making worldwide surveillance technologies and weapons of mass destruction also wants to implant everyone with a tracking biochip, I’d say that people would have to be VERY careful before believing that this is for altruistic/philanthropic reasons.

But what about the “Project Tessara” that’s mentioned in the “rumormillnews” website? Again, 21 years ago in the year 2000, if the post is legitimate and accurate.

Well, yes. There’s information on that as well. Although again, very little.

Project Tessera

Tessera Inc. is a real company, at least according to an actual government website. An archived version can be found here.

Now, what are their agendas and/or products?

Well let’s see…

Pixel Abstraction Software and Test Platform Development for Advanced Seeker Image Processing:

“Tessera Inc. and Lockheed Martin Corporation are currently developing an advanced systolic array missile seeker system for massively parallel resolution of IR images for end-game targeting.”

Miniature Command and Data Handling Sub-System for Nanosatellites

“The goal of the Tessera’s Phase II work proposed here is to demonstrate the effectiveness of advanced packaging technology for miniaturizing a nanosatellite C&DH sub-system.”

Producibility of Higher Density Avionics

“Increasing the density of seeker focal plane processing elements is critical to achieving multi-color, fine grained end-game target resolution and LADAR processing capabilities for missile interceptor…”

Development of a Versatile Reconfigurable Computing Platform for Surveillance and Seeker Applications

“Typical surveillance and seeker information processing platforms today use general-purpose computer architectures or custom, application specific architectures to execute signal-processing algorithms…”

This was just a small list/section of the entirety of their webpage. So comparing the agendas and manufacturing processes of TESSERA Inc.’s products, they certainly do match pretty closely with the BEAST technology mentioned at the beginning of this post.

And as we can see in the blue tabs of the above image, the organizations involved in such projects include The Department of Defense (DoD), Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), and the Missile Defense Agency (MDA).

By the way, in Italian, tessera means “card”. (MARC – Multi-Technology Automated Reader Card…?)

Now, I wish I could say that was all I found.

But sadly, no. No it was not.

This next reveal, takes us back to an extremely dark implication, and involves one of the biggest conspiracies of our time.

The Tessera Project (Short Film 2007)

While researching more information on the Tessera project, I came across a rather disturbing video.

The video was uploaded to youtube in 2007, in two parts, by ChrisRyan156. These are the only two videos he has uploaded to youtube.

In the first part, available here: [ ], the description is as follows:

“This is one of my Dad’s videos that I found in his desk drawer, It’s an informative video and it’s scary stuff, what they are doing to all of us. I’ll try to get more, i know of other hiding places. Again, don’t tell anyone, I don’t want him to get in trouble, please.” ChrisRyan156

The second video, available here: [WARNING: GRAPHIC IMAGERY] CIA TAPES NOT DESTROYED has an even longer description:

“Hey Guys, Christopher Ryan here, The other day I was watching the news and saw just like everyone else, that the CIA had destroyed interrogation tapes. My dad won’t admit it, but he works for the CIA, I think. I remembered him talking to my mom, and he mentioned something about the tapes. The next day I went into his home office and found it in a locked drawer. They made a video out of if it, to teach the millitary how to do this kind of stuff, it’s called the tessera project. This was so Crazy, I just had to share with all of you, so i decided to put it on youtube. Don’t tell anyone, I don’t want my dad to get in trouble.” – ChrisRyan156

Of course, posting a suspicious video to youtube is the last thing you want to do if you don’t want people to tell others. So it seems as if this is just a marketing ploy to promote their film/video.

Indeed, since it is also listed in IMDB, with a different synopsis, but with the same name:

“The Tessera Project is an informative video produced by the Smith and Mitchell Corporation commissioned by the Department of Defense to shed light on the Enhanced Interrogation Techniques used domestically during the War on Terror that proceeded 9/11.” — Christopher Ryan

Now, if we take this synopsis as fact, then again we have the Department of Defense coming up. And it mentions 9/11 as the reason that the Tessera Project was enacted. (Of course, 9/11 is one of the largest controversies of our time since there is a lot of evidence pointing to the fact that this was an inside job, and from our own government, no less. – But that is a different extensive rabbit hole altogether.)

HOWEVER, if this video is true and it really was commissioned by the DoD, that does not explain why Project Tessera was mentioned in 2000, on the rumormillnews website. Assuming that the emails were not tampered with and the dates are legitimate, then Project Tessera was first mentioned OVER A YEAR before Sept. 11, 2001. The Project Tessera film leads us to believe that the project was initiated in order to stop future terrorists because of the attacks that happened in New York City, 2001. But again, if the date on the email is accurate, TJ Hines mentioned this project in January 2000.

There are also large implications that physically and psychologically torturing suspects is justifiable in order to “extract information” from them. As we can see in the video, because the briefcase that the suspect was allegedly holding contained a bomb, the DoD (and/or the filmmaker) is using that as an excuse that “Enhanced Interrogation Techniques” is necessary to “get what they want”.

It is a very disturbing and Machiavellian prospect all around.

And because I like to read text in order to really focus on the scope of these things, I have offered the full transcript of the video in question as well for the readers to take in. Please keep in mind that I am not sure of the legitimacy of the video and if it really was commissioned by the DoD as an “Informative Video”, or if it is simply a short film mockumentary.

But considering the deceptive and manipulative tactics of these government agencies, and their agendas at using psychological operations and wanting everyone to believe a lie (CIA), I have not jumped to any conclusions. Only to say that their involvements in multiple different projects are NOT for the benefit of humankind, but instead a means to defend their own institutions and agendas.

Narrator: “On October 18, 2012, at 4:36p.m., the Earth as we know it will be home to 7 billion people. More than half of them, will hate Americans. And will threaten the very thing we cherish most: freedom.

The Big Apple, District, the Windy City, the Emerald City, and the City of Angels.

As far as the American people are concerned, these 5 cities are highly vulnerable targets for an eminent terrorist attack. Much like they assume our job is to prevent those attacks from ever happening.

Hello. I’m Scott L. Campbell, and on behalf of the Tessera Project, I wish to congratulate you on dedicating your life to the neoteric American century. I’m here tonight for one purpose only. To disclose highly classified information about our young program. Remember this, when they can’t do it, they turn to us.”

“As you know, we are in the 21st century leading a global war. Our commander has strategically deployed over 1 million soldiers around the globe. And as we forge ahead in our occupations of Afghanistan, and Iraq, the public MUST continue to think that our intelligence reports are accurate. That Iran is extremely close to constructing a weapon of mass destruction.

If someone wanting to topple our empire stands in the way of bigger plans, we must stop them. As a result, we have chosen to preemptively begin Operation Condor within the next couple of weeks.

You see, in late August 2001, the project for the neoteric American century, gathered at a small ranch in Texas for an emergency session. Topic at hand, with an unquestionable war in the future, how do we protect the homeland when most of our soldiers are overseas?

The answer is, the Tessera Project. Where we watch, we read, we listen, and we stop.”

[scene shifts to camera crew moving offset – agent moves the narrator to a different set nearby to continue the presentation – starts with panning across the camera crew/agents]

“As we all know, American support these days is at an all time low. This is based on studies done within the last 6 years. But don’t lose hope just yet. A positive change is in our future. Big plans are in the works to get this country back to living in a daze.

I’m talking about another catastrophic event on U.S. soil, blamed on our enemies. The population will become increasingly paranoid. Fearing their lives are in danger, and having no one else to turn to, they will turn to us, their leaders, and our policy. It’s proven to work.”

“The main reason the Tessera Project was created, was to keep a watchful eye on the people that pose a threat living in the United States. In order to do this, rights unwillingly have to be given up.

At our disposal, are different ways to help in building a case against an ordinary citizen.

The man seen here [shows a hostage tied up in a dark room] has been labeled Citizen 1348B. All citizens of this great country have numbers.

This citizen, has written several letters to the editor of The New York Times and The Washington Post, speaking out against our current administration.

If you notice his demeanor, you will be able to spot that he’s hiding something. Through state of the art technology, we were able to track where he went at all times. I’m happy to report that Los Angeles and other major cities are very close to having cameras on every street corner.

Incriminating the suspect when he has done nothing wrong may be a difficult task at first. But not if you know where to look.”

[shows scenes of agents looking through Citizen 1348B’s trash and monitoring his calls]

“Never before in history, has a single government agency been granted so much leeway in terms of what they can and cannot do. Having to answer to no one, the commander, George Walker Bush, on October 17th, signed into law the United States Military Commission Act of 2006.

Under this provision, habeas corpus went out the window. Because of this, we were able to immediately pull Citizen 1348B off the street. We did not give him a trial, and he never received the chance to contact someone on the outside world.”

Narrator: “Once the enemy is in custody, many possibilities are available in order to get what you want out of the suspect.

Enhanced Interrogation Techniques are a necessity in the process of acquiring what you want from the enemy.

Here at the Tessera Project, you are taught to refrain from force, at the point just before the detainee sustains any serious mental and physical trauma.”

[shows graphic imagery of a suspect detained and tortured]

“Moments later, they begin the search for intel.”

[more graphic and dramatic abuse happening to the suspect]

“One of the most powerful techniques used in today’s interrogation rooms is waterboarding. Which causes a severe gag reflex, as water is continuously poured over 1348B’s face.”

[graphic language and abuse interrogation continues, including electrical torture]

“When administered, electric shock can be controlled with exact precision, cause great pain.”

[agents seem to be leading the suspect to confess through physical/psychological torture]

“The catastrophic, Pearl Harboresque events of 9/11 changed everything for us, and the American people.”

[shows briefcase containing a bomb]

“We are on the offense, in a fight for world domination, and globalization. We are the ones in control. And you are either with us, or with the terrorists.

I assure you that this program has saved many lives; and disrupted hundreds of plots to overthrow the government. In order to uncover false claims. You will be the ones to be judged throughout history. Don’t forget. You are doing this, not for me, but for the future of America.

Join me next time, where I will take you deep inside the Tessera Project.

I’m Scott L. Campbell, and on behalf of the Tessera Project, good luck.”

Now, who could have imagined that all of this information came from a simple, innocuous (unsettling) smiley face emoji at the end of a project (named BEAST, for one…) that is used for tracking/surveilling and battling designated targets?

And then, of course, we have to ask ourselves – who do they determine as their “targets”?

Fact checking is extremely important. I want to reiterate not to take everything at face value; no matter what you read, where you read it from, or who you hear it from. And to be clear, do not rely on “fact checking” websites to give you accurate information either. These are just as likely, (if not even more likely…), to feed false information and false debunking accounts to manipulate the reader. Please take everything into consideration before adhering to a certain narrative – and always keep your mind open to other possibilities.
