Abstract
THE DEVICE DESCRIBED IN THIS PHASE I PROPOSAL INCORPORATES A NOVEL TECHNIQUE FOR USING RF AS AN ENHANCEMENT TO FACILITY SECURITY SYSTEMS. RF HAS OFTEN BEEN INVESTIGATED AS A METHOD FOR PROVIDING A NON-LETHAL DETERRENT TO INTRUSION INTO SECURED FACILITIES SUCH AS STORAGE FACILITIES FOR NUCLEAR WEAPONS. THE PRIMARY PROBLEM ASSOCIATED WITH THE SYSTEMS THAT HAVE BEEN STUDIED HAS BEEN THE ABILITY TO CONCENTRATE ENOUGH POWER ONTO THE INTRUDER WITHOUT HAVEING TO RADIATE RF OVER AN EXTENSIVELY BROAD AREA. THE CONCEPT DESCRIBED IN THIS PROPOSAL ALLEVIATES THIS PROBLEM BY PROVIDING A TECHNIQUE WHERE THE RF IS COUPLED DIRECTLY TO THE INTRUDER. THE SYSTEM PROVIDES A NON-LETHAL DETERRENT TO A POTENTIAL INTRUDER WHERE THE RF POWER AND SUBSEQUENT PENALTY TO THE INTRUDER INCREASES AS THE INTRUDER PENETRATES FURTHER INTO THE FACILITY.
