"IDT (the Unified Field effect) is currently deployed by militaries worldwide. Several Latin American countries are now employing this innovative approach, based on the success of the 15,000 members of the Navy, Air Force, Army, and Secret Service of Ecuador. Also, an IDT pilot project was instituted by Brazil’s elite military police force shortly before the Olympics to improve performance and prevent terrorism."
