This is for the "home" market?

This is a very interesting product, but is it really for the "home" security market?  I suppose one could argue that it would be useful for farms and ranches, but that's not really "home" security.

The average home does not typically have 17km to protect.  So what is the short range?

Hi TJ,

It's not marketed at the home market but at the "homeland security" market -- high-value domestic targets like dams, airports, power plants, air traffic control centers, prisons, borders, etc. My term of choice would have been domestic, rather than homeland security, but some government person post-9/11 chose homeland security (which always sounds vaguely Nazi-esque to me), so we are stuck with it.

I understand Kristin, but the title of the article is "Home Securty Market", not Homeland.  And I agree, Homeland does have echoes of Fatherland.

Military radar for homeland security

The detection system itself is of marginal benefit unless it is linked with an action element able to stop the incursion.

To prevent hostile incursions I would suggest a copy of our Navy "PHLANX" system, which provides an awsome level of protectionm against incoming "anything". Because most of the information is classified, there may not be much more information available than what I have already mentioned. However, the term awsome is certainly applicable.

The dynamic of the homeland security market is much like that of the broader mil/defense landscape. That is, technology in and of itself does not a market player make. OTOH, airport security and perimeter protection is actually a hotbed of innovation. I did a story early last year on a little-known effort by IBM, which I still find fascinating (the effort, not my story). Take a look at "IBM Patenting Airport Security Profiling Technology."

To find a good printer in Canada. I would suggest using the following companies: Toronto Printer | Calgary Printer | Winnipeg Printer | Montreal Printer | Regina Printer | Saskatoon Printer | Quebec Printer | Ottawa Printer | Edmonton Printer | Vancouver Printer | These companies provide the best and most affordable price in whole Canada. Other printing companies I suggest would be Print Quote Services | Printing Company | Best Local Printer | Some other local cities have great printers as well such as the following: Charlotte Printing | Dallas Printing | Nashville Printing

Nowadays, it is hard to find quality print trader. This is my recommendation for best print trader in the united states Best Print Trader | Lowest Price Printing Wholesale | Print Outsourcing | Print Broker Trade

Lastly, all print should comes with a state of the art Print Management Software. I would highly recommend this print software tool.
