DeTect has announced the release of its popular DroneWatcher APP on Amazon’s Appstore for Fire Tablets. The DroneWatcher APP makes Android devices such as Amazon’s Fire tablets into personal or business drone detectors for security and personal privacy protection. The app is available in a free and a paid Pro version, and, for a limited time*, DeTect is providing the DroneWatcher APP Pro upgrade version for no charge on the Amazon Appstore at the following LINK or by searching for ‘DroneWatcher’ on Amazon. Depending on the strength of the device’s WiFi, a DroneWatcher enabled device will detect most non-encrypted WiFi or RF controlled drones at ranges from ¼ to ½ mile, providing an audible and visual alert when a drone is detected. With the Pro version, users can group multiple Fire tablets and smartphones together to form low-cost, wide area mesh networks for monitoring of large areas and, when one device detects a drone, all devices in the group will be alerted. The Pro version displays the make and model of the drone detected and logs the drone’s unique ID number to a database. The Pro version also includes a “power bar” that allows the user to determine the general direction of detected drone’s controller. The DroneWatcher APP currently detects 85%+ of non-encrypted, WiFi and RF controlled consumer drones on the market. For added, multi-layer security, the DroneWatcher APP can integrate with DeTect’s DroneWatcherRF and DroneWatcher Drone Surveillance Radar (DSR) sensors to provide a near 100% drone detection and defense solution. About DeTect: DeTect (http://www.detect-inc.com) products include drone surveillance and interdiction systems, aircraft bird strike avoidance radars, UAV Ground-based Sense-and-Avoid radars, airspace and marine security radars, border protection systems, and bird radars for wind farm and industrial bird control and protection.


DeTect has announced the release of the Pro version of the popular DroneWatcher APP – the app that makes Android smartphones and tablets into personal drone detectors for security and privacy protection. The $5.00 (US) Pro upgrade version has all the features of the free app plus provides detailed information on the detected drone, includes a signal strength indicator, and allows multiple users to create a crowdsourced network for wide-area drone monitoring. The free and Pro versions of the app are available on Google Play. When installed on a smartphone, tablet or other Android device, the DroneWatcher APP makes the device into a drone detector with a detection range of ¼ to ½ mile. With the Pro version users can group multiple devices together to form low-cost, wide area mesh networks for monitoring of large areas and, when one device detects a drone, all devices in the group will be alerted. The signal “power bar” also allows each app user to determine the general direction of detected drone’s controller and the drone ID feature shows the drone type and unique ID number. The app currently detects 90-95% of the non-encrypted consumer drones on the market. For added, multi-layer security, the DroneWatcher APP can integrate with DeTect’s DroneWatcher RF and HARRIER Drone Surveillance Radar (DSR) sensors to provide a near 100% drone detection and defense solution. About DeTect: DeTect (http://www.detect-inc.com) is a US-based leader in remote sensing technologies with offices in the US and Europe and projects worldwide. DeTect’s products include drone surveillance and interdiction systems, aircraft bird strike avoidance radars, UAV Ground-based Sense-and-Avoid radars, airspace and marine security radars, border protection systems, and bird radars for wind farm and industrial bird control and protection. Since 2003, DeTect has manufactured and delivered over 350 systems worldwide. DeTect most recently installed a DroneWatcher™ drone detection and defense system at the Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport (ECP) in Panama City, Florida.

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Diagnosis of active tuberculosis (TB) in TB-endemic countries, where gt90% of the global TB cases occur, depends upon microscopic examination of sputum smears made directly from the specimen. While this test is highly specific, the test is tedious, time-consuming, requires multiple patient visits, and has limited and variable sensitivity WHO has repeatedly expressed the need for a rapid, simple and affordable point-of-care (POC) test for TB, and has provided specifications for such a test. deTect Biosciences, LLC was founded with the goal of developing an inexpensive, rapid POC test for the diagnosis of active TB infection. The deTect rapid TB test is based on detection of antibodies against carefully selected peptides representing immunodominant sequences of cell wall proteins of M. tuberculosis (M. tb), and is the only serologic assay under development that is based on peptides rather than recombinant proteins, a feature that assures lower cost and greater specificity and reproducibility. The deTect IP portfolio contains 38 immunodominant peptides; antibodies specific for these peptides discriminate subjects with active TB from those with latent M. tb infection or BCG vaccination. During the Phase I STTR, deTect focused on a subset of nine peptides, optimized methods for conjugating these peptides to bovine serum albumin (BSA), and demonstrated that the peptide-BSA conjugates resulted in significantly enhanced reactivity (compared to unconjugated peptides) with sera from TB patients, but not from PPD+ subjects. Evaluation of these peptide-BSA conjugates initially by ELISA and subsequently on a lateral flow format showed that the use of optimal peptide-BSA combinations can provide high sensitivity and specificity and forms the basis of a sensitive and specific lateral flow POC diagnostic test for active TB. The goals of the Phase II studies are to select an optimal subset of peptide-BSA conjugates with which to prepare a prototype of the deTect TB rapid lateral flow diagnostic kit, and to validate its performance, concurrent with developing all documentation needed for commercialization. Specifically, we propose to select the optimal subset of peptide-BSA conjugates for detection of active TB (Aim # 1), devise a rapid lateralflow TB diagnostic test based on the peptide-BSA conjugates selected (Aim # 2), and validate the performance of the deTect assay using prototype kits by testing specimens from appropriate cohorts as described in the applications. The criteria for the success of the test will be driven by the WHO standards proposed for a TB diagnostic serological test. By the end of Phase II, we anticipate that the non-clinical specifications (stability, robustness, prototype design, production, etc.) an clinical requirements (sensitivity and specificity) of the deTect POC TB rapid test will be documented and that the product will be ready for limited production and field testing. PUBLIC HEALTH RELEVANCE PUBLIC HEALTH RELEVANCE: The work proposed will ultimately lead to development of an inexpensive, robust, and rapid ELISA diagnostic and a point-of-care device for detection of active TB infections. No reliable rapid assay for active TB currently exists. The deTect Biosciences assay would help deliver effective treatment for patients and potentially reduce the spread of TB and mortality.


Patent
Detect Biosciences, Llc | Date: 2010-05-26

A rotational antenna includes a stationary feed which is disposed in a substantially vertical orientation. A parabolic dish is rotationally mounted about the stationary feed in a state of being tipped with respect to the stationary, substantially vertically oriented feed. The rotational parabolic antenna may alternatively be provided with a rotating radio frequency (RF) and acoustic feed. Other embodiments are disclosed.
