Victims found–using One of These Systems
Will, though, first amendment rights attorneys declare that no tool is good enough
to be used if it POSSIBLY violates one person’s rights when seeking victims.

For eons, bad people, for myriad reasons, have kidnaped and hid the victims. Then, relatives had to “go seeking.” If the baddie was a good hide and seek player, he was in super control.  Over time, as the baddies kept stealing humans for whatever reasons, the villages and cities began creating police forces and within that, exceedingly elementary but “better than nothing” searches for the loved ones ensued–where, unfortunately, 95% were never found.  According to media and stats, that percent of never recovered has not changed.

This article will depict some of the methods Israel has been using to find their enemies
hiding in houses–that the U.S. military has been using to find anyone at night wherever
they are.

If the presumed legal challenges can be surmounted, with every police force using
all three of these systems, no person ever kidnaped should ever again stay hidden
more than one or two hours.

Naturally, first amendment attorneys will see the use of these FIND you devices as being
intrusive even though their purpose is to find victims. If that intrusive complaint
can be surmounted, within 90 days, law enforcement nation-wide could have a tool that
would seek out both kidnaped and other law breakers that are hiding. With
tools similar to these described here, even if a person is hid in a jungle or under ground,
they can be found quickly!

The data on the four popular tools for SEEING through walls is described in great
detail through out the rest of this article.

Infrared X-Ray Camera
“I see you, a thief on the roof. My new satellite link has both infrared and the x-ray spectrum. I see your heart beating. I see you are afraid.”
— Gunther Hermann, Deus Ex

Whenever someone calls for the infrared camera on TV shows and film these days, either the handheld version or one mounted on Spy Satellites, the device will have amazing qualities, chief among them being able to see through walls. It’s incredibly convenient for the good guys being able to make out what’s happening inside the building. Sadly, real thermal imaging infrared cameras don’t work like that at all. Heat simply doesn’t go through walls in such a way to form a picture. Walls are generally supposed to stop heat from getting through them, which is why they are insulated. In fact an infrared camera meant for thermal imaging (as opposed to near-infrared), the kind most often seen on TV and movies, cannot even see through a sheet of regular glass that’s perfectly clear to anyone using the Mark One Eyeball. Anyone looking at a sheet of glass with a thermal imager is more likely to see their own reflection. Steam is not good for IR either, but any light fog (which is usually cool) could be penetrable to an extent.

The truth is plainly obvious from all those televised high-speed chases in Los Angeles where the chase takes place at night so the Forward Looking Infrared camera on the police helicopter gets to show the Cool High Tech imagery. You can see the heat of the car engine, the tires, the ground where something hot has been, even the reflection of heat off the ground, yet you can’t see the driver and his passengers although the few millimeters of metal making up the car body is a lot thinner than the several inches of material making up the average house wall. Not to mention, it conducts heat better. One can therefore conclude that either writers and directors don’t watch Fox, or that it’s yet another case of technology gone awry in the service of the plot.

The infrared spectrum is over three thousand times wider than the visible spectrum (visible = 400nm to 700nm; infrared = 700nm to 1,000,000nm) and has substantially different properties depending on which part of the infrared spectrum you are at. The infrared spectrum is typically divided into four groups:

Near-infrared (wavelengths of 700 nm to 1400 nm): Produced by objects that are glowing hot (light bulbs, the sun, fires). Most “night vision” cameras use this because the sensors are cheap (just stick a visible-light-blocking filter over a digital camera sensor) and because you can illuminate an area with IR-emitting LEDs without anyone noticing. Most greyscale night images are using this part of the infrared spectrum. Glass is quite transparent to this, as are many lightweight fabrics (most notably, those used in swimsuits). Metal reflects it, and most opaque objects block it. If you assume it behaves like visible light, you usually won’t be wrong.
Mid-infrared (wavelengths of 1400 nm to 8000 nm): Produced by objects that aren’t quite glowing hot (jet engines and the like). Used mostly by heat-seeking missiles.
Long-wave or thermal infrared (8000 nm to 15,000 nm): Produced by objects that are at “reasonable” temperatures. This is the band that is used by heat-detecting cameras. These cameras are quite expensive, and need to be cooled down below the temperature of the environment (otherwise, they’d see themselves rather than the world around them). Most solid objects will block or smear the IR from objects behind them, while adding their own heat to the mix.
Far infrared (15,000 nm to 1,000,000 nm): Produced by cold objects (think “liquid nitrogen” cold) and by specialized scientific equipment. Not much practical use.

Note, however, that there theoretically exist wavelengths on which the electromagnetic radiation behaves similarly to this trope. That’s high-frequency microwaves (down from centimeter range), and imaging radars that use them. They are, however, very complex and expensive and are used only in some very specialized fields. Just one example would be the terahertz radiation (T-rays), which sits uncomfortably on the border between infrared and microwaves. It’s hard to produce and hard to detect, but most non-conductive objects (walls, clothing, etc) are transparent to it while most conductive objects (metal, the water in your body) reflect it. Terahertz sensors (which, as noted above, have more in common with radars, rather than with the cameras), are already being used for airport security in a number of countries, and known as “nude scanners”.

Up there with invisibility, teleportation, and being able to cancel mid-season TV breaks, x-ray vision is one of the most sought after superpowers. In the mind’s eye, the ability to see through clothes has a veritable smorgasbord of litigious applications — but in the real world, especially in a military context, being able to see through walls would give soldiers an immense advantage… And that’s exactly what the MIT Lincoln Laboratory has managed to do.

It isn’t quite x-ray vision — it uses microwaves instead — but MIT’s radar array, made by Gregory Charvat and John Peabody, can see through 8-inch concrete walls (video demo below). Basically, it works just like a normal radar system: 44 antennae send out S-band microwaves (2-4GHz, about 10cm peak to peak). Most of these microwaves — 99.4% — bounce off the solid concrete wall. The 0.6% that make it through bounce off any objects on the other side, and then come back through the wall, losing another 99.4% of the waves. By the time the microwaves return to the array, the signal is just 0.0025% of its original strength.

Seeing through walls: blob targets. So far so good — and now it’s time for the novel bit. The reflected waves are amplified and then passed through an analog crystal filter, which removes the waves that were reflected by the wall, leaving just the data left by whatever’s on the other side. This data is then analyzed by a “gaming computer” (bottom right in the image above) to create colored blobs on a screen; one red blob per moving target, and it can only track moving targets — but the researchers say this is OK because even the steadiest combatants can’t stay stiller than a concrete wall. All of this occurs in real-time, incidentally, and the blobs move around at 10 frames per second.

If you’re an armchair physicist, you’re probably wondering ‘why microwaves?’ Longer radio waves penetrate walls much better — that’s why television and radio signals can traverse hundreds of miles, while your WiFi router has all the power of a walnut — but they also require a much larger transmitter and receiver. Charvat and Peabody wanted something that could actually be used in warfare, and at 8 feet wide their creation could be mounted on the back of an army Hummer.

Anyway, with a working seeing-through-walls device, the researchers are now working on the output imagery: instead of blobs, they want each moving target to be represented by a cross. The MIT press release also points out that the same technology could be used by emergency response teams, to see through rubble and collapsed structures for survivors. For the most part, though, at least according to Charvat, the radar array is all about more efficient killing: “This is meant for the urban war fighter … those situations where it’s very stressful and it’d be great to know what’s behind that wall.”
