On June 7, 2011 the Electronic Privacy Information Center("EPIC") submitted an FOIA request to the Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate. EPIC's intent was to seek records regarding the Department's Future Attribute Screening Technology ('FAST') Project. DHS has not provided testing results or location of the field-testing site from the initial phase of the project. In the FOIA request EPIC states "the FAST Project is designed to gather "physiological and behavioral signals" and may have already collected this personal information from members of the public without legal consent.
