    New Radar Allows Law Enforcement to See Into Your Home
    Newsweek

    More than 50 U.S. law enforcement agencies are using a type of radar that effectively lets officers peer through the walls of homes to determine whether anyone is inside.

    Agencies began using the radar, known as Range-R, more than two years ago without informing the public and with little notice to the courts......But its use was only made public in December when a federal appeals court in Denver said that the radar had been used before entering a house to arrest a man named Steven Denson for violating the conditions of his parole.

    The technology uses radio waves to detect even the slightest movement, such as a human breathing, from more than 50 feet away. While the device does not display an image, it does alert officers that it has detected movement and indicates how far away that movement is....
