Technical surveillance
countermeasures (TSCM)

TSCM is defined as the gathering of any information using audio, visual, or technical
attack methods leading to loss or unauthorised disclosure of data or information.

To ensure confidentiality a technical surveillance risk assessment should be carried
out and recommendations should be implemented when considering information
security and business continuity arrangements.
The Raptor RXi is intended to analyse and monitor the radio frequency spectrum in
electronic countermeasure operations. Radio transmitting devices are probably the
most popular types of eavesdropping device. They are readily available, relatively
cheap, and widely advertised. In addition, information on eavesdropping attack
methods are now readily available on the internet.
The Raptor RXi is a portable device, allowing reference scans to be easily run in
different areas of a building. The system quickly identifies localized RF transmissions of
all types of modulation over the entire frequency spectrum.

Spectrum monitoring and
interference mitigation
The Raptor RXi is an all-in-one spectrum
monitoring solution for detecting all types of
communications signals using any modulation
and transmission method.

The Raptor RXi provides reliable detection of
radio interference caused by defective electronic
equipment. Monitor RF bands to determine
compliance with local laws and regulations.
Monitor assigned frequencies to look for interfering
signals or to determine if your transmitters are
working properly. Fast and effective elimination of
interference sources, e.g. at airports.

Applications for HAWK XTS & SEARCHER-2500 Non Linear Junction Detector

IEDsearch
(detection of improvised explosive devices)
One of the greatest areas of concern to soldiers in the field is that of radio controlled
improvised explosive devices (RCIEDs), which kill more soldiers in modern warfare
than any other weapon system.

Such devices are also being increasingly used by terrorist organisations and other
subversive groups to target civilian VVIPs and their vehicle convoys. Winkelmann has
nearly two decades of experience in developing NLJD's and has delivered over 2500
units to Military & Government agencies. Over the past few years, NLJD's have played
an important role in detecting improvised explosive devices, this has fuelled the latest
research, ideas and growth, and technology delivery.
The HAWK XTS-900 is capable of locating and confirming the presence of electronic
components found in devices, regardless whether they are switched on or off. The
HAWK XTS-900 allows the operator to search voids and areas where they are unable to
gain physical or visual access, in order to detect electronic components and determine
ifthe area is free from an Improvised Explosive Device (IED). The lower frequency of
the HAWK XTS-900 detector has an advantage of detecting devices in the ground. The
lower the frequency, the better the penetration in the ground.

Technical surveillance countermeasures

(TSCM)
TSCM is defined as the gathering of any information using audio, visual,
or technical attack methods leading to loss or unauthorised disclosure of data
or information.

The HAWK XTS-2500 is capable of locating "bugging" devices even if they are switched
off behind plaster board, concrete or brick walls, steel and glass. T5CM sweeps can be
monotonous, repetitive, and stressful in certain environments, non-linear junction
detection is an extremely powerful search technique in addition to normal physical
search procedures.
The higher frequency of the XTS-2500 detector has an advantage on well-screened
targets such as mobile phones and similar devices. The smaller waveform at 2.5GHz
makes it more likely for the signal to get through gaps in the screening enclosure of
the electronic device.

>

Mail screening for concealed electronic devices
(suspect packages)

The SEARCHER-2500 is the most compact handheld non-linear junction detector
available on the market today. It has been designed to the very highest
standards, in terms of functionality, ease of operation and reliability.

Used for checking suspect packages for electronic devices such as mobile phones,
digital recorders, cameras and high value electronics.

Applications for Specialist Visual Search Products

Our aim is to offer
customers worldwide
a range of quality,
cost effective systems
that are designed for
specific applications.

Winkelmann provides
the government,
military and security
markets an innovative and
pioneering portfolio of
remote visual inspection
products. Our videoscopes
and endoscopes are
used on a daily basis in
challenging environments
including conflict zones
around the world.

Our aim is to offer customers worldwide a range of quality, cost effective systems that
are designed for specific applications. We offer highly portable, robust, intelligent
remote imaging solutions featuring a host of advanced, intuitive features making
them the ideal choice for remote visual inspection.
Endoscopes allow an operator to illuminate and view inside a cavity by drilling a small
hole or accessing a cavity through an existing opening. This speeds up the search
process and greatly reduces damage and repair costs that would result from the
normal destructive opening of the cavity.
Flexible endoscopes (fiberscopes) are adopted by most search teams as they allow
easy introduction into a cavity, have tip articulation and can travel along bending
ducting, such as cable conduit. Given the tactile articulation control, the distal end tip
can easily, quickly and accurately be manoeuvred into any position.
The EOD IV Multi Swing Prism Rigid Endoscope (Borescope) offers a low cost solution
for some applications where direct access is possible. The multi swing prism allows
prograde (forward) or retrograde (backward) view during the inspection without the
need for changing the scope.
The EOD V Flexible Endoscope (Fiberscope) is a product that allows an operator to
view down an eyepiece whereas the EOD VII Explorer Videoscope and EOD VIII Tactical
Videoscope use a micro camera and an image is displayed on a screen which provides
less strain on the user and allows more than one person to view the area under
inspection at the same time.
Images can be recorded on all systems using an optional digital camera on the
borescope/fiberscope or frame grabber on the videoscope.
There are many different areas where these products can be used in search operations
including buildings, vehicles, aircraft. trains, containers and freight.

Application for Specialist Visual Search Products

)

Contraband Search

Customs and Police use specialist
visual search products for searching
any location for drugs and
contraband. Endoscopes & Videoscope
systems save precious time and
allow operators to inspect cavities
previously inaccessible to view.

Examples: the internal inspection of
car door panels, searching inside the
metal wall compartments of 20ft and
40ft containers, viewing inside locked
garages for stolen property or vehicles
etc. Any of our EOD range can be
used for these applications in helping
customs, border agencies and police.

)

Technical Surveillance
Countermeasures (TSCM)

To maintain the security of Government
or Corporate buildings and vehicles, it is
necessary for special teams to search for
listening devices or covert CCTV systems.

After the detection of an electronic bug using the
Raptor RXi (spectrum analyser) or Hawk (nonlinear junction detector), an endoscope can be
used to view in the suspected cavity containing
the device with minimal damage. This can be
in any area such as ceiling voids, cabling ducts,
under floor areas, ornaments, artefacts and
furniture. The EOD IV multi swing prism rigid
endoscope, EOD V flexible endoscope search
kit and EOD VIII tactical videoscope system are
ideal products for this application due to their
portability and flexibility.

)

Improvised Explosive Device (IED) Search

During military operations, VIP visits, heads of states summits and major
conferences, security forces need to search venues and transport for possible
terrorist bombs.

This task is carried out by military engineers, bomb technicians and police search teams.
Endoscopes are an indispensible tool used to assist operators in searching cavities and
other inaccessible areas or suspect packages for improvised explosive devices (IED's).
The EOD IV multi swing prism rigid endoscope or EOD V flexible endoscope search kit
are ideal products for this application due to their portability and flexibility.

Security

In overt or covert security surveillance, whether
used as a back-up device supporting other overt
recording technology, or as a concealed covert
device, the combination of innovative optics
and acoustic technology with advanced signal
processing and conditioning has produced
a device with many advantages over more
traditional approaches.
The recordings achieved are of sufficient quality to
be admissible as evidence in legal proceedings if
required. For applications where evidence gathering is
the primary objective, the high quality of the captured
sound recording and the wide coverage achieved
by the unit make it a very useful addition to the
equipment portfolio.
Typically, the fiber optic microphone can be
unobtrusively mounted to casino tables, installed
in offices where fraud is suspected, can be used as a
covert back up for interview recording and so on - the
possibilities opened up by the technology of the fiber
optic microphone are endless.

)

Industrial

Well established as an ideal technology
for acquiring measurements in harsh
environments, photonic sensors are tolerant
to extreme temperatures, EMI, shock and
vibration, and resistant to corrosion.
Optical fiber-based sensors are also lighter,
more accurate and more versatile than
conventional instrumentation. Typical
applications include; monitor acoustic
equipment during electromagnetic
compatibility testing & test immunity with
devices inside a GTEM cell.

Oil &Gas
In an industry where even the smallest gas leak or equipment fault are lifethreatening and costly, engineering managers demand sensing systems that
reduce hazards, increase efficiency and are easy to install and maintain.
Only photonic-based systems can effectively meet these tough demands. They are
completely passive and free of metal and electronics which could cause explosions
and interference, they can endure the most extreme environments, they are especially
compact, and they are simple and reliable. Typical applications include for gas analysis
in harsh industrial applications & measuring static pressure changes.
