Abstract : The detection, location and tracking of an intruder in an area to be protected is accomplished by dividing the area into a multiplicity of discrete regions, transmitting r.f. signals from transmitting transducers that comprise lengths of transmission lines deployed along the boundaries of the discrete regions, and receiving intrusion occurrence signals from receiving transducers located with each region. Violation of a boundary by an intruder results in an intrusion signal from the receiving transducers of as many as four possible adjacent regions thereby indicating an intrusion event. A coincidence logic circuit indicates which boundary has been violated. Intrusion occurrence signals are stored for suitable periods of time while past and current intrusion events are indicated on a display in order to locate and track intruders. (Author)
