Abstract
As miniature, radiofrequency (RF) transceivers grow in widespread use and capability, their deliberate or inadvertent infiltration into secure areas poses a growing threat to national security. Manual searches and metal detectors at checkpoints are at best inefficient and generally ineffective at detecting hidden radio transceivers. Invertix's Ferret technology promises to detect these hidden transceivers with high reliability and low false alarm rate, at ranges consistent with a wide range of commercial and military applications. In the proposed Phase II effort, Invertix will develop a system using Ferret technology for close-range applications, resulting in a prototype, walk-through transceiver detector. The prototype system will be evaluated in a relevant environment against key requirements including operating characteristics, size, cost and safety.
