Intelligence: December 24, 1999


BEMA Inc. is providing the Pentagon, US intelligence agencies, and some friendly foreign governments with special "tents" used to prevent electronic eavesdropping. The tents measure 6x9 feet and are made from polyester coated with nickel-copper, silver-copper, or silver. Electronic eavesdropping devices, which can read the activities of computers from some distance away, cannot detect these emissions from computers and other electronic gear operating inside one of the special tents. Australia is known to have bought some of the tents and is using one or two of them on Timor. --Stephen V Cole
