Abstract The manufacturer designed InSight for military use but is currently seeking FCC approval for civilian law enforcement use. Under the Criminal Justice Technology Information and Sensor Systems CoE (Award No. 2009-IJ-CX-K113), operated by SCRA, several domestic police departments evaluated the device with favorable reviews. One department had on hand another TTWS, Radar Vision by Time Domain (a device no longer produced) and compared the performance of the two devices, finding the InSight to be superior in portability and ease of use (Radar Vision is a much larger, two-handed device). However, the older device was able to better detect and track targets through interferences such as glass, steel supports and sheet rock.
