1 – Perimeter intrusion detection radars
Description
We will develop two radar systems for intrusion detection the first, called more properly GUIDAR is based on ranging leaky coaxial cable sensors and creates a volumetric protection zone; the second is a high performances free-space RADAR and creates a virtual barrier. Both systems are designed to detect moving targets.
The GUIDAR exploits the features of Ultra Wide Band (UWB) radar signal transmitted along a leaky coaxial cable and whose reflections, given by targets approaching the cable, are received by another leaky coaxial cable and then processed, detected, and classified by means of a complete and innovative Digital Signal Processing (DSP) system.
The leaky coaxial double cable can be installed, buried or not, along a generic path and protect a cylindrical volume around the double cable with a diameter of about 2 m along its entire length. Each digital processing system, able to detect the position and size of any target, can manage up to hundreds of meters of cable. More digital processing systems can be networked using standard Ethernet and then connected to a central managing system. This technology is generally classified as active, volumetric, terrain following, all-weather, and immune to vegetation and blowing debris.
We also developed a mono-static UWB electronic scanning radar (ESR) using a new antenna design and an advanced DSP system realizing a protection barrier. The processing unit is developed implementing a signal processing scheme able to precisely recognize the intruder radar cross section and position up to hundreds of meters distance from the antenna. More processing units can be networked using standard Ethernet and then connected to a central managing system. This technology is classified as active, volumetric, all-weather, ideal for low profile targets, and immune to vegetation and blowing debris.
Advantages
We will develop innovative cable geometry and innovative antennas that dramatically improve the performances of our systems in terms of ranging with respect to the existing products. Moreover we will adopt innovative UWB radar analysis software based on DSP architecture that permits us to reach very high detection capabilities and performances and to be highly resilient to the environment changes (nuisance).
Applications
These systems are ideal to protect military and operation plants, airports, borders, oil pipes, etc.

2 – EMSEC (protection and eavesdropping)
Description
Electronic equipment can emit unintentional signals from which eavesdroppers may reconstruct processed data at some distance.
We will develop a single pc/laptop active protection system based on the emission of correlated signals (innovative concept) that is intrinsically totally secure. Emitting a composite correlated protection signal the received spectrum is a non discernible mix of the signal to be protected and the protecting signal. This apparatus is low power, narrow band, impossible to violate and easy to be installed.
We will develop a high performances (large distance and through the wall) eavesdropping system on video display unit based on state-of-the-art digital signal processing. The system is an all-digital system implementing a fast AD conversion and digital front-end. Channel equalization, automatic choice of spectral harmonic, automatic extraction of vertical and horizontal synchronizations, and digital image enhancement permit to reach unprecedented performances in terms of readability.
Advantages
A completely and totally new concept is applied to the protection system and a totally digital system will be developed for eavesdropping permitting to reach unprecedented performances.
Application
The protection system can be applied in military installations, in governmental buildings, during tactical operations, etc.

3 – Real time positioning system
Description
Organizations need a system able to locate objects or people. A real time positioning system consists of a fixed infrastructure of base stations and associated hardware and software to enable accurate real-time tracking of small battery powered (active) tags, which can be attached to people or objects, within the area covered by the base stations infrastructure. Compared to Global Positioning Systems (GPS), this system provides greater accuracy (typically to a resolution of a few centimetres) and the ability to work in situations where GPS does not (such as inside buildings) and with very small devices (active tags) with very small batteries.
The sensors in each base station are very sensitive detectors for the low power pulses emitted by the tags and can distinguish between reflections and directly received signals. Each sensor independently determines the azimuth and elevation directions of arrival of the incoming signals using special antenna array and signal analysis. Sensors do not need to have optical line of sight contact with the tags since the signals go through walls and other objects. An infrastructure of base stations can be installed and networked using standard Ethernet and then connected to a central management system.
Advantages
New sensor antennas will be developed with improved performances. Innovative signal processing techniques will improve range and precision. The main advantages of such technologies are high precision, very good performance even in presence of obstacles or limited visibility, capability to work both outdoor and indoor, capability to work also with important metal obstacles using a suitable topology for the base stations, very high noise immunity, etc.
Applications
The system can be applied wherever is necessary to track in real time the position of people or objects, i.e. to associate the data from a bar code scanner with its position in a warehouse, to provide the position of a pallet of goods placed in a warehouse or a container in a storage area or airport, to automatically detect the proximity between objects, to determine if during an emergency procedure employees have all reached designated areas, etc.

4 – Image processing codecs
Description
This system is constituted of an off-the-shelf electronic board based on digital signal processors running state-of-the-art image processing software algorithms (embedded system). It gets an input from any video camera (or radar, or eavesdropping system) and gives alarm and other outputs. It will perform the following content video analyses motion detection, abandoned/removed object/vehicle detection, perimeter crossing detection, panic situation detection, people/vehicle counting and speed evaluation, PTZ camera tracking, plate recognition, behaviour analysis, face recognition.
Advantages
We are confident to reach incredible performances in terms of image resolution (> 1 mega-pixel) and video rate (> 25 frames per second).
Applications
The system is ideal to protect military and operation plants, airports, borders, vip houses, highways, cities, etc.

Licensed Products shall mean any product or portion thereof which embodies any Licensor Proprietary Data and/or Intellectual Property.

The infrared security system (ISS) product is based upon a unique concept that we believe is proprietary. The ISS utilizes two or more infrared cameras directed at a common surveillance area. The locations of the cameras and their optical fields of view are pre-established and stored in a central computer database. Computer programs harmonize the information into a three dimensional grid, and camera processors perform image processing on the surveillance area to detect moving objects. Information is transmitted to the central computer, and compared to information in the database for pre-defined threats. Alarm criteria can be based on object size, location, and movement over time. We believe this system has a powerful threat detection capability that inherently rejects false alarms and which will separate our ISS from those of our competitors.

60/597,048 An infrared (IR) security system and method is disclosed comprising two or more IR cameras directed upon a common surveillance area. Locations of the cameras and their optical fields of view are pre-established and stored in a central computer database. Computer programs harmonize the information into a 3D grid. The camera processors perform image processing on the surveillance area to detect moving objects. Object angular position, size, aspect ratio, and radiometric intensity are simultaneously transmitted to the central computer. The grid position, physical size, and inherent electro-magnetic contrast of the objects are computed. These IR signatures are then compared to the target definitions in the database of IR signatures on pre-defined threats. Alarm criteria can be based on object size, location, and movement over time. When a threat is determined, the user is notified by text message, image or video.

Field of Use
Licensed Field shall mean the commercial sale to any customer for use in Security Applications.

o
The wall would be constructed in smaller modular interchangeable units

The Extra layer
o
Embedded within the wall will be a thin layer of graphene film. This super composite is 100 times stronger than steel and more conductive than gold. This will give the wall an inner strengthening of the steel making penetration almost impossible (optional extra)


Robotics – A sophisticated package of sensors positioned on a smart track.
o
A robotic track with smart camera system with facial recognition capabilities will travel across the entire wall length scanning persons of interest within the perimeter mapped zone, facilitating rapid response. This is not available with currently contemplated alternative proposals.
o
Modular units positioned at central points will ensure real-time coverage of entire length, again for rapid response.
o
The intelligent camera system will record biometric data of persons of interest which is then fed directly to central servers – Homeland Security or military as applicable to use.
o
Software algorithms will be specially developed into clean data which can then integrate with other US databases and with our allies to identify, monitor and track any person of interest picked up on sensors.
o
Virtual wall sub sections specifically tailored where installing a physical wall is simply not feasible.

Drone Lock
o
Portable drones situated at strategic points will be connected digitally. These are autonomous vehicles which will be activated as and when required to track persons of interest.

Current status

Sensors TRL 6

Completed system TRL 2

Technology Readiness Levels (TRL) are a type of measurement system used to assess the maturity level of a particular technology. Each technology project is evaluated against the parameters for each technology level and is then assigned a TRL rating based on the projects progress. There are nine technology readiness levels. TRL 1 is the lowest and TRL 9 is the highest.  When a technology is at TRL 1, scientific research is beginning and those results are being translated into future research and development. TRL 2 occurs once the basic principles have been studied and practical applications can be applied to those initial findings. TRL 2 technology is very speculative, as there is little to no experimental proof of concept for the technology. When active research and design begin, a technology is elevated to TRL 3. Generally, both analytical and laboratory studies are required at this level to see if a technology is viable and ready to proceed further through the development process. Often during TRL 3, a proof-of-concept model is constructed. Once the proof-of-concept technology is ready, the technology advances to TRL 4. During TRL 4, multiple component pieces are tested with one another. TRL 5 is a continuation of TRL 4, however, a technology that is at 5 is identified as a breadboard technology and must undergo more rigorous testing than technology that is only at TRL 4. Simulations should be run in environments that are as close to realistic as possible. Once the testing of TRL 5 is complete, a technology may advance to TRL 6. A TRL 6 technology has a fully functional prototype or representational model. TRL 7 technology requires that the working model or prototype be demonstrated in a space environment. TRL 8 technology has been tested and “flight qualified” and it’s ready for implementation into an already existing technology or technology system. Once a technology has been “flight proven” during a successful mission, it can be called TRL 9.

Delivering the Border Sense (technologies) from a Border Sense integrated system CIPS™ (Critical TFT (Thin Film Technology)) Sensor platform to TRL level 6 “Prototype System Verified”. This research and development will enable the Assignee to integrate the IP directly into its customers’ blueprint end user design document. This will cover TRL level 7-9. In the alternative, at a smaller total cost, a scaled-back version to TRL level 3, would be accomplished by engaging the services of the Developer.

Field of Use
This agreement pertains to the defense / military industry.

The Border Sense solution offers the United States Government a sophisticated method to protect its borders far beyond the capabilities of a basic “wall.” Most significantly, the parties seek to enable the United States Government a cost-effective method to build the Border Sense System and innovative mechanisms to recover initial costs to ultimately cost the US taxpayer very little to nothing. For the United States Government, the Technology enables the parties to design a completely novel framework for a resilient low-cost Smart Digital Barrier to solve an age-old problem and resolve an important political issue, employing innovative technologies coupled with reconfigured and optimized existing security systems.
