Upon looking at Matric’s structure , Alex found the following Carlyle Group members on the Board of Directors at Matrics:
Brooke Coburn: Managing Director of The Carlyle Group
Mark Ein: “Previously, he was with Washington, D.C.-based Carlyle Group for seven years where he had responsibility for many of its telecommunications investment activities including: LCC International; Telcom Ventures, a founding shareholder of Teligent; several companies that were merged into Nextel; a company that was merged into American Tower Corp.; and Prime Cable (which acquired cable systems in the Washington D.C. and Chicago markets from SBC and later formed a strategic relationship with Comcast).” (from Matric’s website — http://www.matrics.com/about/board.shtml)
Michael Arneson: (take a look at spook-man) “Michael Arneson has over 20 years of experience with the National Security Agency/Department of Defense in electronic design, development, and integration of advanced electronic security technologies. He specialized in the re-engineering applications of smart materials, sensors, software, and hybrid integrated circuitry and managed multi-million dollar government programs, from research to implementation into the commercial sector. Mike holds eight patents for commercial and classified purposes and has five patents pending.
Mike has been published in technical publications, has received the Distinguished Service Award from NSA, and has received several awards from DARPA, the Department of State, and NSA.

When you look closer at the website, you will notice they talk about using RFID for Homeland Security and it’s clear that they’re selling the RFID as part of Big Brother’s infrastructure.
When we first looked at the image of the RFID styled like a swastika we thought it was so in-your-face that we needed to do more research. We didn’t have to dig very deep to find the shaddowy figures behind Matrics.
