They're screwing themselves in the process...Just like we've done w/ our computer systems, too complex too fast. We communicate w/ probes like 11billion miles away w/ 8-20 watts and use a reflector on the moon to measure distance.
Faradey 'caging' inside the house of potential target to block RFID activation?
There is a book I like, in it one of the protagonists strongly suspected the antagonists were tracing something the resistance had. He then ran off and only allowed his gaurds who were willing to part from all of their stuff to rejoin him. The gas drone gassed the kit.(/vague)
As a fledgling boater, it amuses me what havoc seawater can wreak with anything electric. Lost a phone that way.
Artificial seawater may also be had. ;D
"Faradey 'caging' inside the house of potential target to block RFID activation?"
Not so simple if the RFID works in the SHF Spectrum or higher.
Faraday cage inside a house won't stop someone from slapping a RFID sticker on the outside.
In the realm of science fiction, Vernor Vinge wrote, "A Deepness in the Sky". A key part of the plot revolved around the protagonist running an underground resistance fight using only "locator tags" as weapons. Of course his locator tags were a bit more than today's RFIDs, but not *that* much. What's interesting is that this was published in 1999.
Thank you for your tip.
Is it possible to apply similar trick as for grounding your car (conductor attached to the body and permamtenly touching road) against police radar for
SHF Spectrum or higher to prevent activation in addition to Faradey cage itself?
