K-Electronics creates electronic signature
The latest developments in electronic signature technology.
article K-electronics, makers of a new generation of low-cost, high-power, low-voltage electromagnetic pulse detectors, is now making headlines in the UK after it launched its first commercially available unit at a UK university.
The prototype has the potential to help police detect explosives, drugs and other illegal substances, as well as track criminals and rogue organisations, as a potential way to stop criminals, terrorists and other criminals from accessing data.
“We can use these detectors as a platform to gather intelligence from the public,” said K-Electric’s CEO, Nick Beasley.
The K-Light unit, developed by the UK’s Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, will cost £1,800. “
In addition to that, this is a significant step in the right direction, as it opens up a whole new way of gathering intelligence.”
The K-Light unit, developed by the UK’s Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, will cost £1,800.
The device is an eight-metre long, six-foot wide, five-metrel height, three-foot long, and weighs approximately 10kg.
The first of its kind, it has a six-volt battery pack, allowing it to last for an estimated three hours, although its range may be extended for longer.
The battery is comprised of a lithium-ion polymer electrolyte and a copper ion-conducting capacitor, which allows it to store power in a rechargeable battery.
“These batteries are very expensive, but we are confident that they will last us a long time,” said Beasley, who hopes the device will be commercially available within a year.
The detector is powered by two 8-volt batteries that can be connected to a USB port and a 3.5mm audio jack.
The detectors are also powered by a small USB port that will be used for data transmission.
“The power from the battery is used to drive a two-stage magnetometer that measures the voltage difference between the battery and the device,” said the company’s website.
“At each stage, the device sends an electrical signal to the detector, and the detector responds by sending an electrical wave through a capacitor, with the capacitance of the wave being determined by the voltage of the battery.”
The detector also measures the strength of the magnetic field, which is measured by a magnetic field analyser on board the unit.
“A high-voltance magnetic field will have a strong negative effect on the detector’s power output, but will also cause the detector to lose its sensitivity,” said a statement from K-Energy.
“However, a high-powered magnetic field of 1,000 volts will cause the device to lose sensitivity to a wide range of frequencies, which will in turn cause it to lose effectiveness.”
The company has said the detector is “designed to be able to detect large numbers of electromagnetic pulses, so it is ideally suited for the monitoring of large events, such as nuclear tests”.
“These are not the only types of signals that can detect and measure, but they are the most common and the most useful,” the company added.
“Using a high frequency electromagnetic signal is extremely sensitive, and allows us to detect anything from nuclear explosions to large-scale earthquakes.”
The product has been designed to detect up to two,000 microwaves (or a milliwatt) of energy per metre squared, which translates to up to 10 times the sensitivity of a conventional high-frequency magnetometer.
“There is a lot of interest in this type of device, and it is a good indication of how important it is to develop more sensitive technology,” said Steve Stott, who runs a research firm based in Cambridge.
“I would imagine the next few years will see a lot more research and development on this.”
K-Power is also developing a new type of detector that will allow the detector device to detect different types of electromagnetic fields.
“It will also work on smaller and smaller devices, as the magnetic fields are very small,” said Stott.
“That is what is important for these types of detectors to be effective, as these types are more sensitive to small changes in the magnetic properties of a magnetic surface.”
The device will allow police to track the movements of criminals, drug traffickers and rogue groups.
“If we can use this detector to catch people who are not necessarily trying to hide, we can potentially identify them very quickly,” said Brian Coughlan, who has been working on the device for two years.
“And then we can do a lot to stop them.”
The UK government has already spent millions of pounds on research into the technology, including a £1.6 million research grant from the Ministry of Defence.
In June, it was announced that the Government will spend £3 million on a project that will use the technology to identify a range of potential threats, including terrorist groups, criminals and organised crime.
