From News Track India:
The U.S. Army is dedicating millions of research dollars into discovering building helmets that will allow soldiers to telepathically communicate with one another on the battlefield. The technology, which seems like something out of a science fiction novel, would use electrodes to pick up code words that soldiers were thinking. Those code words would then be transmitted back to a computer where the soldier's position and message telling, for instance, that it is safe to progress towards a target, which would be transmitted to their peers in the field.... Now, new details are emerging about the very real 4 million dollars research project being conducted across the country on the Pentagon's dime. Based largely out of University of California, Irvine, in conjunction with labs in Philadelphia and Maryland, scientists are trying to improve so-called "synthetic telepathy" so that it could be used in a battlefield.
