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."
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.
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.
The 100% solar-powered airplane Solar Impulse 2 is prepping for its upcoming flight, becoming the first plane to fly around the world without using fuel. It's able to do so because of above-average performance by all of the technologies that go into it, especially materials.
With major product releases coming from big names like Sony, Microsoft, and Samsung, and big investments by companies like Facebook, 2015 could be the year that virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) finally pop. Here's take a look back at some of the technologies that got us here (for better and worse).
Good engineering designs are those that work in the real world; bad designs are those that don’t. If we agree to set our egos aside and let the real world be our guide, we can resolve nearly any disagreement.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
