Bug sweeping, to keep your conversations secure

giugno 3, 2010 Technology No Commenti

When in your workplace or office you are discussing important business strategies or information, ast any level, secrecy is a vital factor, especially if one of the keys to success is being faster than your competitors. Therefore, it is essential that any information exchanged during a decision-making meeting is kept safe and protected against prying ears, especially if there are substantial sums of money at stake.

In order to keep your environment secure, it is advisable to resort to technological aid, for example by installing a bug sweeping system which can use different ways to keep our conversations private. For example, to be reassured that no one has placed micro transmitters or hidden microphones in your office, you can use a bug detector, which would immediately expose any radio or GSM transmission source within its operating range.

Alternatively, to thwart any listening attempts that may take place by using a mobile phone (or, as explained above, through a GSM bug) you can use a signal jammer, which will create some sort of “island” where mobile phones can neither receive nor transmit, thus achieving two results in one: no news could leak outside, and no one will be able to disturb your meeting with an unwanted or untimely phone call, and the decision making process will not be influenced or disturbed by anyone outside.

Of course, in case of a bug sweeping operation that will be looking for concealed bugs or microphones, it is always advisable to consult an expert who will accurately scan and inspect your office or home, trying to locate any miniature listening devices that may be endangering the privacy of our job or of our personal life.

To do this, you can consult the Endoacustica website, where our environment reclamation experts will be able to give you a tailored advice.

Sanyo to launch its Full HD underwater video camera

giugno 3, 2010 Technology No Commenti

Sanyo has just announced the worldwide launch of its miniature camera DMX-CA100, a high definition Dual Camera (that is, a device that works both as a video and a photo camera) which can be used even under the water, up to a maximum depth of 3 meters.

News about the launch of this underwater videocamera manufactured by Sanyo comes just a few days after their competitor Toshiba have announced that they would soon be releasing a similar model, underwater and with high definition features, which in spite of having been announced a few days earlier, thus deservedly holding the title of “first Full HD underwater Dual Camera”, does not seem to be a match for DMX-CA100 under the image quality point of view, especially as far as usage as a photo camera is concerned.

DMX-CA100, in fact, can record up to 60 minutes of high definition video footage, with a resolution of 2920 by 1080 pixel in MPEG-4 format. The images shot by the photo camera are 14-megapixel, with a 4640×3480 resolution, and can also be taken with the continuous shot function, which allows you to shoot up to 22 images with a frame rate of 7 per second.

Thanks to its Double Range Zoom function, you will also be able to use two different zoom levels and quickly switch from one to the other, with a magnification up to 12x.
Images and footage can be stored on a SXDC memory card, and naturally, they can easily be downloaded on your PC at a later stage.

The price tag on DMX-CA100 has not been placed yet, meaning that all you have to do is wait until the end of June to know it, and to choose your model in a color of your choice among pink, yellow and black.

Air traffic controllers to switch to GPS, at last

giugno 2, 2010 Technology No Commenti

GPS location systems are not only useful to find your way back home, to avoid traffic jams or to track down a criminal under surveillance, but within a few years they will also be used to locate flying commercial airliners.

In fact, the US Federal Aviation Administration, in agreement with the Obama administration, has set the guidelines according to which any aircraft, within year 2020, will have to be equipped with a GPS positioning system in order to have access to US airspace, and to land in the country’s busiest airports.

Thanks to this system, airliners will be constantly transmitting their position information to the traffic control center and to other planes around them, giving controllers a clearer and more updated picture when compared to what can be obtained with the current radar systems.
In fact, thanks to GPS planes will send their position every second, while current radars update position of aircraft within their range every several seconds.

Furthermore, this will allow the aircraft itself to be sending its position to the control center, and not the latter scanning the air as it happens now. The real breakthrough lies in the fact that, if the airliner is equipped with the necessary technological devices, the pilot will be able to see exactly what the controllers see, including, most of all, other planes around them, thus dramatically reducing the risk of collisions in the air or during takeoff and landing phase.

In a few words, although GPS tracking is seen by many as a modern version of Big Brother capable of monitoring people and vehicles at any time, such an application can only be beneficial for security of our travel and, ultimately, of our life.

Climbing mountains and walls with an elevator

giugno 2, 2010 Technology No Commenti

Powered Rope Ascender is a system which allows you to climb or descend drops, for example like a mountain cliff or a wall, without effort and even while carrying a weight.
This makes it very useful for firemen on a rescue operation, or in the military field, especially for soldiers engaged in war zones where the terrain may be rough, such as Afghanistan just to name one.

This ascension system, manufactured by the Boston-based Atlas Devices, is available on the market since a few years now, but a new version is ready to be used not only on mountains or in cities, but also on a naval environment, thanks to a smaller weight and size when compared to the standard version.

This lightweight version has been created by the US Navy Office of Naval Research (ONR), and should roughly be ready byu the month of Semptember. It is also equipped with a rechargeable battery which would automatically recharge during descent phase.

This is the modified version of a device which was initially designed for mountains and urban areas, but that thanks to some changes can prove useful also on the sea, for soldiers having to climb or descend a vertical surface quickly, for example during boarding of an enemy ship, or for swift evacuation of wounded personnel.

Its loading capacity just below 300 kgs makes it possible to quickly ascend at a speed nearing 2 meters per second, even if loaded with weapons or carrying a wounded soldier on your shoulders; it works not only on vertical surfaces by lifting or lowering its load, but also horizontally, for example to pull a wounded soldier towards his rescuers without having them exposed to enemy fire.

An autonomous underwater robot to study the Gulf oil spill

giugno 1, 2010 Technology No Commenti

The oil spill that so dramatically broke out under the Deepwater Horizon platform in the Gulf of Mexico has now become the most serious environmental disaster in the history of the United States, and the black tide does not seem to stop, especially after three different attempts to contain it have failed, most of all the Top Kill which had given hope for a while thanks to the heavy mud that had been pumped into the pipes, but turned out to be a failure just like the others.

The latest attempt takes the form of an autonomous underwater robot, or AUV (Autonomous Underwater Vehicle), designed by the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI), which has been immersed in the oily water a few days ago in order to locate and study any oil plumes under the surface of the ocean.

Generally, AUVs are programmed before letting them into the water, in order to automatically carry out certain operations once they are under the sea, for example by gathering and analyzing samples of water, to send the result of the analysis towards the mother ship, and do a check-up to assess the health of the sea around them, or to take photos or video footage, eother for scientific usage or for underwater surveillance.

This underwater robot made by the Californian researchers can measure standard characteristics of water, by detecting presence and concentration of polluting particles, or of oil like in this case.
What makes it one of a kind is the presence of ten 1.8-liter tanks, or “gulpers” which can gather samples of water , to be later taken to the surface to be analyzed, and of an artificial intelligence system which can detect the presence and boundaries of an oil plume, and gathers water samples both inside and outside the plume, to study the differences and impact on micro organisms in the water.

The robot, called Gulper after these tanks can dive up to a depth of 1500 meters, enough to reach the bottom of the sea in the affected area and gather samples near the spill.

The world’s fastest helicopter has a double rotor

giugno 1, 2010 Technology No Commenti

Sikorsky is at work to produce what, once the job is done, should become the fastest helicopter to ever grace our skies. To make it the fastest, they have equipped it with a pair of rotors, which rotate in opposite directions.

The two rotors are coaxial, that is, mounted on the same axis, and thanks to them, the Sikorsky X2 has already been able to reach, during the test phase, a maximum speed of 181 knots (208 miles per hour), faster than the 160-170 that can be reached by a traditional single rotor chopper. The ultimate target is reaching 250 knots (approximately 290 miles per hour).

The Sikorsky X2 copter is packed with state-of-the-art technology, not only the two coaxial rotors, but the rigid blades mounted on the rotors, along with an array of instruments and hi-tech solutions such as fly-by-wire control system, active vibration control and an auxiliary integrated propulsion system, which all help increasing stability and maneuverability of the vehicle.

Thanks to these features, X2 is exceeding, already in its test phase, the maximum speed achieved by conventional helicopters, which gives good hope to reach the final goal as far as performance is concerned.

Of course, the ultimate objective is not only breaking the previous speed record, held since over 20 years by the British Westland Lynx ZB-500 with 249.1 miles per hour (400 km/h), but also to build a flexible vehicle which can easily switch from high to low speed and vice versa, without losing a bit under the maneuverability point of view. Results so far seem to be more than encouraging, let’s just wait and see.

Spy Phone gets an upgrade and records phone calls

maggio 31, 2010 Technology No Commenti

As our faithful readers may happen to know, one of the most important products in the surveillance field among those marketed by us, as well as the most asked for and popular, is certainly the Spy Phone, or more specifically spy mobile phone, which thanks to a completely invisible software installed discreetly, allows you to monitor the phone activity and traffic of an unfaithful spouse, of an employee who is flirting with your competitors, or of a teenage kid who might be hanging around in bad company and end up in trouble.

Of course, each customer who makes the decision of buying a spy cellphone does it because of a specific surveillance or monitoring need, and this monitoring is done in different ways and times according to possibilities and time availability.
For example, not everyone is able to be constantly ready next to their mobile phone to listen in real time to the conversations that involve the person under control.

If, just to name a few examples, you are busy with a work meeting, or are driving in the traffic or on the highway and are unable to pick up the phone, or more simply if your subject receives a call while you are still sleeping, you might lose the right time to gather precious information, and the entire surveillance operation might be seriously affected.

Therefore, to support our customers who asked us for a solution to this wide range of problems, we are now able to offer a new additional function with our spy mobile phones, that is, the call recording feature.

This functionality is made possible by the Voice Recorder software, an additional module to the Spy Phone, capable of recording phone calls (both incoming and outgoing) and to send them as an audio file directly towards an e-mail address, or to another device via a Bluetooth connection, a WiFi network or GPRS connection.

To start up the function, all you have to do is send an SMS message from the monitoring number; this message will be intercepted by the spy software, which will read it like an operating instruction, thus preventing it from being displayed on the phone screen.

From that moment on, recording will be activated automatically, and at the end of the conversation, the audio file will instantly be sent to you according to the transmission parameters you have previously set, and that you can change remotely at any time. The good thing in having audio files sent by e-mail lies also in the fact that you will not need to enter any password when sending.

Furthermore, all activities carried out by your Voice Recorder module, as well as all other Spy Phone activities such as sending a copy of each SMS towards the monitoring number, are performed in a completely secret and invisible way, without leaving any record in the phone history, preventing its user from raising eyebrows.

To request and receive further information on how spy phones work, on how to record calls and much more, we recommend that you visit the Endoacustica website, where you will be able to contact our experts for a personalized advice, tailored on your needs in the telephone surveillance field.

Mini waterproof video recorder, for amateur divers or spies

maggio 30, 2010 Technology No Commenti

When you travel to a white tropical sandy beach for your holidays, you may want to save those unforgettable moments, especially during a dive among the millions of colorful fish that swim in those waters, or during a swim in the crystal clear sea.

To do all this, you do not need complicated, bulky and expensive machinery, if you have with you a small waterproof video recorder, simple, lightweight and handy, which will allow you to tape your dives without even noticing that you are carrying it.

In fact, it is a small device, cylindrical in shape and with extremely tiny size (less than 7 cm length and approximately 2 in diameter), which can be easily strapped to the side of your diving or swimming goggles, to record video footage from the diver’s point of view, giving your viewers the impression that they are really there with you while you are swimming.

Recording can be started (and stopped) very simply, with a single button, and once you get out of the water you can easily connect it to your PC with a USB cable, and download your movies, so that you can maybe post them to Facebook or YouTube and make your friends go mad, especially if they are at home or in the office while you are relaxing.

Of course, the waterproof video recorder, which can go up to 10 meters deep and is resistant not only to saltwater but also to corrosion caused by human sweat, has a wide range of other possible applications, for example for reconnaissance or surveillance in rivers or lakes, to record images which may be useful for law enforcement during an underwater search and rescue operation.

These are just small examples, but thanks to its flexibility and ease of use and its small size, the only limit, apart from video storage capacity (4 Gb which can be expanded up to 6) is your fantasy!

It looks like an earphone, but it is a micro video camera

maggio 29, 2010 Technology No Commenti

When you are doing your morning jogging, with your faithful MP3 player blasting loud music in your ears to help you keep your running pace, no one could possibly suspect that, actually, what looks like a player is not playing music, but instead recording video footage, and that this footage is picked up right through those which, at a first glance, look like normal earphones.

Instead, we are talking about a ear video camera, that is, a miniature camera with an equally small sensor with CCIQ technology, which allows you to achieve a 400 TV-lines resolution video, and to do it in a completely invisible way for those around you. One of the two earpieces contains a micro video camera, while the other one houses a miniature high sensitivity microphone, which gives you the opportunity to add an audio track to your videos.

Thanks to this miniature camera, powered directly from the pocket video recorder it is connected to, you will be able to shoot videos without arising any kind of suspicion, storing them directly on the video recorder, with a capacity depending on the recorder’s available video memory.

Thanks to its secrecy and invisibility characteristics, Ear Cam is suitable for covert operations carried out by law enforcement agents, for example to gather evidence against criminals or mobsters, which can later be used before a court of law to prove their guilt.
In fact, when people do not suspect that they are being taped, they might let their tongue loose and reveal details that might be compromising, and that can be gathered as evidence thanks to the Ear Cam.

For more details on how Ear Cam works, we recommend that you visit the Endoacustica website, where you can contact our consultants, who will be able to give you advice, tailored on your needs in the surveillance field.

An invisibility cloak for armored tanks

maggio 29, 2010 Technology No Commenti

Becoming invisible has always been one of the age-old dreams of mankind, especially for military generals, who dream that their troops could suddenly show up, unseen, behind enemy lines in order to strike and win a battle or a war. Nowadays, the legendary cloak that gives invisibility could be finally stepping into the real world, thanks to a research project carried out by an Israeli manufacturer called Eltics, who have just presented their system, called Black Fox, capable of making an helicopter, an armored tank or even a ship vanish into the air.

Of course this disappearance does not involve dematerialization, nor it is real, but it is instead an invisibility to the sophisticated eyes of radar and defense systems, including those mounted on remotely guide missiles.

For example, to make a tank disappear, the system will set to work by taking images of the environment around it. The next step would involve analyzing the thermal signature of the surrounding area.
At this point, on panels mounted on the outside of the armored tank, the images would be projected, in order to simulate the thermal signature and merge the tank with the environment around it, allowing it to advance without any trouble, especially at night, and to strike its target taken the enemy by surprise.

Any vehicle equipped with this kind of devices is therefore able to successfully escape night vision systems based on detection of the thermal signature, as well as missiles that use the same principle to identify and strike targets thanks to their thermal footprint.

Currently, Black Fox is in its advanced research stages, and could prove absolutely vital for armies which could employ this technology, giving them an undeniable step ahead when darkness falls and the battle starts.
