Current technology requires compliance on the part of the target subject. With a fixed installation at a secure facility, perimeter controls require costly operator manpower and can be avoided during a dedicated assault. Individual screening with equipment that requires line-of-site and millimeter bandwidth scans are slow and prone to operator errors or false-positive results along with increasing privacy concerns. Expensive and slow, increased deployment of large fixed detection equipment will inevitably shift threats to “softer” less secure targets.
Practical detectors must be reasonably priced, small, covertly located, simple to operate, safe to health, have an intelligent yes/no decision making capability, and possess a low false alarm rate in the presence of strong relative interference and a background of innocuous normally carried metal.
Patriot One Technologies in partnership with researchers from Canada’s McMaster University have developed a solution that employs near field radar in a manner that addresses all the factors outlined above in a cost-effective system that is being developed for commercial application in public locations within a realistically short time-frame.
CURRENT TECHNOLOGY FAILS FOR MANY REASONS
Advances in radar technology leads to weapons detection adaptation
The most widespread use of both microwave and millimeter-wave radar is automotive safety devices, including adaptive cruise control, automatic braking, collision warning, blind spot detection, lane departure warning, and backup object detection. While not the same as PATSCAN™ CMR hardware technology, the applicability as a result of miniaturization is similar.
