MIT Development: The Ability to See Through Concrete Walls With Radar

This remote sensing development at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has become a lead story in more than a few popular press and scientific periodicals.  Go here to read the story as offered by Telepresence Options.

Comment: Keep in mind as you read this and other related articles on this topic, that this technology is at the start of its development.  Over time, fuzzy dots will turn into outlines of the human form and the size of the enabling equipment will shrink substantially.  Furthermore, while the idea that drove creation of this technology was support of the Armed Forces during urban combat, with refinement this system could become a wonderful tool for supporting Urban Search and Rescue Teams in the collapsed structure environment - for example, determining where individuals are trapped (Haiti).
