Ethics in the use of Detection Systems

Radio Physics Solutions Ltd has developed MiRTLE (Millimetre-wave Radar Threat Level Evaluation), the world’s first, high performance, long range (up to 50m), low cost, standoff “concealed threat” detection system.

MiRTLE is designed to protect citizens and critical infrastructure from unseen threats.

The system is capable of screening large groups of people automatically and autonomously, without operator intervention, in real-time.

The system detects PBIEDs, guns (including 3D printed) and knives up to a range of 50m in real-time, with targets in motion, all without privacy concerns. Professor Tom Sorell is advising on ethics (including privacy issues) raised by this H2020 project.
