Course content
1. Introduction (tapping, interference, tracking of people, physical access systems) 2. Frequency spectrum (RF, UHF, ISM 433, GSM, UMTS) 3. Modulation of radiofrequency and microwave signals 4. High frequency transmission lines, antennas and propagation of radio-signals 5. Radio receivers ? basic architectures 6. Test (numerical examples) 7. Tapping devices(link tapping, radio-microphones, laser spying, noise generators) 8. Equipment for detection of tapping devices ( wideband detectors, radio-scanners ) 9. Radiolocation of sources of the radio-interference (detection of direction of arrival) 10. Jamming of frequency spectrum (intentional, non-intentional (EMC), natural sources of interference signals) 11. Electronic security system as the source of information about intrusion of the physical security 12. Physical access systems, system Winpack (Honeywell) 13. Super-standard motion detectors, biometric identification, identification cards 14. CCTV camera as the source of the information for the purpose of physical security

Learning activities and teaching methods
Lecturing, Simple experiments, Individual work of students
Learning outcomes
The course is divided into three parts. First part introduces students with minimum necessary theory for understanding theory of signals and theory of wireless transfer of information and antennas. These findings are then applied in the second part of the course for search of hidden radio-microphones to ensure information security of places of interest. Third part of the course deals with super-standard components of the object security. Main focus of the part is oriented towards advanced detectors, contact and contactless cards, biometric readers and physical access systems (such as Winpack).
The student gains knowledge about the technical equipment for the link and radio tapping devices and learns to use these tapping devices in practice. Further the student gains basic knowledge from the area of superstandard components of object security (such as superstandard motion detectors, biometric readers and identification cards). The knowledge can be applied for the purpose of design of modern security systems.
Pass of subjects - Technological equipment of security industry - Electronic security systems - Design of Security Systems

Assessment methods and criteria
Grade (Using a grade system), Oral examination

- lectures are not compulsory - during numerical exercises from first and fifth week at least 80 percent attendance is required - measurement of six laboratory tasks within 7th and 11th week and hand over of the laboratory protocols Classification of the subject: The subject is classified by 100 points with the following structure - numerical test in 6th week, 18 points - 6 laboratory tasks (7th to 12th week), each task for 2 points, in total 12 points for laboratory part - examination : oral (70 points) (During oral exam, a student answers 3 questions from a list of 45 questions which cover the scope of the subject) For successful pass of the subject, minimum 50 points is required. The result of a subject examination is expressed on a six-point scale: A "výborně" (i.e. "excellent"), B "velmi dobře" (i.e. "very good"), C "dobře" (i.e. "good"), D "uspokojivě" (i.e. "satisfactory"), E "dostatečně" (i.e. "sufficient"), F "nedostatečně" (i.e. "fail").
