Abstract: 

1 page fact sheet on the technology trends of Quantum Cryptography

Quantum cryptography uses quantum physical principles to securely distribute a secret encryption key between two or more remote parties. This key is then used for a classical encryption scheme to encrypt and decrypt information. For this reason, quantum cryptography is also called quantum key distribution.

Abstract: 

1 page fact sheet on the technology trends of through-the wall sensing

Through the Wall Sensing (TWS) or Through the Wall Radar (TWR) describe technologies which enable the detection and localization of persons or objects through non transparent and non metallic matter (e.g. walls, debris). Active TWS systems use microwave or rather radar frequencies (2-30 Ghz), whereas passive systems are able to utilize radiation emitted by WLAN or broadcasting systems.

Abstract: 

1 page fact sheet on the technology trends of Biometric recognition technologies

"Biometric recognition includes a variety of technologies which are used for the automated identification and authentication of people. Unique identifiable attributes such as iris, retina or fingerprints, as well as hand, face, voice or gait patterns can be used to validate the identity of individuals"
