  1. RedTactonPersonal Area Network Wendy Beatty Dianne Brotherson Rachel Corron

  2. Agenda • Overview • What is it? • How does it work? • Potential Applications • Gun Control • Consumer • Viability • Competitive landscape • Projections

  3. What is RedTacton? • HAN – Human Area Network – the last meter • Transmits data utilizing body’s electric field The body becomes its own Ethernet cable • High speed – up to 10 mbps • Very secure • Uses a transmitter and a receiver, or a transceiver, which provides both functions

  4. How it works Point to Point Network Transceivers exchange information – no server Optical properties of electro-optic crystal – varies based on electric field Data received using photonic electric field sensor combined with electro-optic crystal and laser light

  5. Step by Step • Transmitting transceiver creates a change in the field • Receiving transceiver recognizes the change in the electric field • Electro-optical crystal uses laser to convert and read the signal

  6. Security • Requires physical contact Must be wearing the transceiver and touching something else with a transceiver • Less potential for wireless interference and between other RedTacton devices • Allows for encryption and authentication • Programmable You decide what to share with whom and what devices you communicate with

  7. Caveats • No military experience • Not members of the NRA • Only experience with the military and guns is from TV and movie exposure

  8. Staged Adoption • 2008 • Must-do • Develop the technology

  9. Staged Adoption • 2009 • May-do • Develop the technology for a high-end military weapon • Viper – tank missile

  10. Staged Adoption • 2010 • May-do • Develop the technology for standard military weapon • M-16

  11. Staged Adoption • 2011 • May-do • Develop the technology for other military equipment • Howitzer

  12. Staged Adoption • 2012 • May-do • Develop the technology police forces

  13. Staged Adoption • 2020 • May-do • Develop the technology guns sold in the U.S.

  14. Other Applications • Medical - insulin pump • Consumer • Turnstile • General Security • Swipe card

  15. Competitive Viability • Power of Buyers v. Power of Suppliers • Power is with the device manufacturers • What is a device? • Cell phones, PDA’s • Any device we wish to communicate with • Buyers may demand monetary benefit to include new technology • New technology may require significant design changes • R&D still needed • Government, Military, or medical professionals

  16. Competition • Bluetooth • Zigbee • IrDA • UWB • Skinplex • Verichip

  17. Obstacles • Time & cost • Needs to gain popularity to pull instead of push • Widespread marking campaigns and education • Not useful unless many people adopt it

  18. Predictions • Medical • This area has the financial resources available for Research and Development and it also has the potential to be beneficial to a large percentage of the population. 

  19. Predictions • Military • If the military adopts this technology is it likely the public would never see it. • Consumer Applications • Necessary funding for continued R&D does not make this a likely scenario in the next decade
