This article reports on the effort of Lockheed Martin and partner Intelleflex to develop a system based on radio frequency identification (RFID) tags to spot a wide range of security anomalies. According to Vibeke Libby of Lockheed Martin Space Systems Company's Advanced Technology Center, the Versatile Advanced Monitoring System (VAMS) showed that it can detect stationary objects, single or multiple intruders, air-dropped items, left-behind items, and intruders who vault perimeter fences. Particular focus is given to how the VAMS works.
