Scotland Yard Links To Interpol Comms

The agreement, which was jointly signed by Interpol Secretary General Ronald K. Noble and Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir John Stevens, will result in closer collaboration between the two organizations in a number of areas.

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Police in <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />London will now be able to use Interpol's global communications system, I-24/7, which is a high security system using the Internet as a 'tunnel' for encrypted data. It enables users to access Interpol's databases including those on fingerprints, DNA, stolen travel documents and terrorist intelligence stored at the General Secretariat in Lyon, France.

Extreme's 400-Metre Ir Illuminator

The UF600 is a supercharged, optimized high-performance version

of the UF500 and has been developed by Extreme engineers to

greatly extend night vision surveillance performance using

conventional CCD cameras and lenses. With dual units at input power of only 200 Watts each, the UF600 can surpass 400 meters (1,300 feet) in complete darkness when matched with its FSX800 model CCD camera and IR sensing zoom lenses. The UF600 will be

marketed as a commercial product without any special government

clearance as prerequisite to purchase.

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

The UF600 further underscores Extreme's position as the leader

for active-infrared night vision equipment. Unlike that of

passive thermal systems, the UF600 delivers high-resolution

illuminated video suitable for use in intelligent scene analysis

CEO's Ignoring Security Risks

More than 70 percent of the 1,233 organizations -- representing some of the leading companies in 51 countries -- failed to list training and raising employee awareness of information security issues as a top initiative.

As organizations move toward increasingly decentralized business models through outsourcing and other external partnerships, it becomes ever more difficult for them to retain control over the security of their information and for senior management to comprehend the level of risk to which they are exposed.

Csiro Researchers Develop Magnetometer For Needle Search

The team, based at Lindfield in <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Sydney, can pick up a piece of a hypodermic needle less than one millimetre long at a distance of five centimetres.

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

“Conventional hand-held metal detectors couldn’t find the whole needle at half that distance,” says project leader Dr Marcel Bick, who’s been running the proof of concept experiments.

“We can even detect needles wrapped in aluminium foil, which is something a standard metal detector has lots of difficulty with,” he adds.

The team has achieved great success, even finding fragments weighing less than a milligram, because their device is no ordinary metal detector: “It’s a SQUID magnetometer,” says Dr Cathy Foley, who heads up CSIRO’s work on SQUIDs.

Nvt Puts Power Up Twisted Pair

"The unparalleled interference rejection and low emissions of the NV-218A-PVD let video signals co-exist in the same wire bundle as telephone, datacom, or low-voltage power circuits," emphasizes Guy Apple, NVT vice president, marketing and sales. "This allows the use of a shared or existing cable plant, reducing costs and time of installation. As with all NVT products, the NV-218A-PVD carries a limited lifetime warranty and is UL and cUL listed."

With the new NV-218A-PVD, power, video and data are routed via UTP and RJ45 or "press-fit" terminal block inputs/outputs. When used at the camera, the passive NV-218A-PVD has a 9-inch mini-coax pigtail lead for direct video output connection from the camera.

Cctv For Sailors

The EyeOnBoard system utilizes on-board network cameras and environmental sensors to continuously monitor the yacht. The on-board systems connect via the Internet through wireless hotspots at marinas to EyeOnBoard's central servers.

The EyeOnBoard servers process and display the data into easy-to-read Web pages secured for each yacht owner. Upon logging in to his secure site, the owner has immediate real-time access to environmental sensors (shore power, flooding, temperature, humidity, and intrusion), network camera images, wireless network status and marine instrumentation data (GPS, water depth, wind speed, and status of house batteries).

The <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />EyeOnBoardYachtResponseCenter responds to alarms from the owner's yacht 24 hours a day, seven days a week using the EyeOnBoard System and notifies the owner or his designated agent of a verified sensor alert.

Voice Over Ip Is In Law EnforcementS Sights

The solution allows VOIP transmissions, which have been inaccessible to law enforcement agencies, to be logged and tapped in the same way telephone signals can be.

<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

PacketCable represents the cable industry's interoperable interface specifications for a wide variety of services. PacketCable networks use Internet Protocol (IP) technology to offer services such as Voice over IP, otherwise known as IP telephony.

"The latest issue of this technical specification represents a milestone in the cable industry's efforts to address law enforcement's concerns regarding VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) services made available by cable companies," said Kerry Haynes, FBI Assistant Director responsible for Investigative Technologies.
