I wanted to follow up on the this Freedom of Information request, originally submitted on Nov. 3, 2016. Please let me know when I can expect to receive a response, or if further clarification is needed.

Thanks for your help, and let me know if further clarification is needed.

From: Helena J. Csorba

Thank you for your response.

FCC has already sent me a list of Ultra-Wide Band (UWB) device manufacturers on August 18, 2016. That response was to my MUCKROCK FOIA Request FCC-2016-000781.

Whereas I appreciated the spreadsheet of the UWB devices and their manufacturers, my query was for a list of intentional radiators and radiolocators as in:

- THROUGH-THE-WALL SENSORS FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT – Market Survey (2012)
http://www.academia.edu/4517064/00_Wall_Sensor_Report_508

- Through-the-Wall Sensors (TTWS) for Law Enforcement: Test & Evaluation Version 1.2 (2014)
https://www.ncjrs.gov/pdffiles1/nij/grants/245944.pdf

- TTWS for Law Enforcement Use Case Scenarios Version 1.3 (2014)
https://www.ncjrs.gov/pdffiles1/nij/grants/246706.pdf

that according to the footnotes, the FCC approves and licenses.

ManTech Advanced Systems International, Inc. prepared the reports for the Department of Justice and describes the devices as Through-the-Wall Sensors (TTWS) for Law Enforcement. If the FCC has a different assignation for these devices, please let me know the correct terminology.

Even as an engineer, I find it impossible to use the websites provided as a search tool. These are the websites the FCC provided:
https://apps.fcc.gov/oetcf/els/reports/GenericSearch.cfm
www.fcc.gov/eas
https://apps.fcc.gov/oetcf/tcb/reports/TCBSearch.cfm

The websites require too many unknown parameters for it to be productive. After all, it is these very parameters that I am requesting:

- frequency parameter
- power of operation parameter
- emission parameters
- applicants name
- FCC ID of the device
- equipment classification
- equipment descriptions
- FCC Rule under which the device operates

Under equipment classification, if you would please designate what kind of RADAR the device is, whether the device is classified as a Doppler RADAR, a pulsed Doppler RADAR, a stepped-frequency RADAR, a continuous wave RADAR, an ultra-wide band RADAR or any combination of these.

Also please provide any FCC rules restricting after market modifications of these intentional radiators and radiolocators.
