Abstract : The single wire leaky coax cable/antenna(s) concept has been modified to include the detection, location, and tracking of intruders in large and small zones. This modified concept has been designated as the Area Illuminated Leaky Cable Sensor. The zones may be large areas such as military bases or small areas containing one or more valuable resources. The zone to be protected is illuminated with rf energy from a transmitter(s) that illuminates one or more strategically placed leaky cable sensors in a prescribed sequence or simultaneously. Outputs from specific sensors indicate the track of the intruder as he moves by or through each sensor's detection field. Experimental results show that tracking is feasible. Also presented are particular operating characteristics of several configurations. (Author)
