Abstract : The document reports the findings of the study phase fo this contract, with conclusions and recommendations for advanced interior intrusion detection concepts to be tested in brassboard. The report discusses potential sources and properties of intrusion signals, measurement techniques, and signal processing methods to extract range and correlating data. It has been found that many techniques have the potential for ranging and correlation of intrusion signals, however few of these are accomplished in a straightforward, practical sense. Through the derivation and application of evaluation criteria, several candidates were selected for further study in breadboard experiments. The breadboard tests afforded a first hand opportunity to measure and compare the anticipated performance of these candidates. The outcome of the experiments then formed the basis for recommending concepts to be explored further in brassboard development.
