Senior police officers are now allowed to access mobile telephone and email records without judicial or executive assent. Within two years, all mobile phones are expected to have satellite-locating devices built into them.
The use of any apparatus, whether or not wireless telegraphy apparatus, for the purpose of interfering with any wireless telegraphy, is an offence under the Wireless Telegraphy Act 2006. It is an indictable offence that on conviction in Crown Court carries a maximum penalty of two years imprisonment and/or an unlimited fine. The courts can also order forfeit of any apparatus used in the commission of the offence.

If you want to defeat this kind of technology in a single localized area, create a Faraday Cage. It's quite simple, line the entire area with some cheap electrically conductive metal like aluminum foil and ground it to a single point, like your water pipe or another earth ground like a steel spike driven 10 to 20 feet into the ground or a metal well pipe.
If you want to do it in a car, make a wideband RF receiver, pass the received signal toa small RF preamp, invert the signal and then pass it to an RF transmitter. The sum of the two signals, the input and the outp will equal zero if done properly.
If you want to do this personally, same as the car, except attach a piezo electric transducer to your skin and emit the output through it which will use use skin as the emitter.
Summing any two equal but inverse signals equals zero. I did this kind of work though the NRC in Canada back in the mid 90's and it works quite well, we were however primarily using for medical purposes, eg. large carrier wave function collapse during an indication of organ failures to prevent further damage or reverse the situation.

The U.K. seems to lead in this kind of tech. It's worse than any 1984 Orwellian fantasy. it sems that most of the Big Brother type sci-fi movies I watched when I was younger have all come true and have exceeded any fiction. I used to want to live in Great Britan not now however. The govt. seems really oppressive to me. Good luck to all the good folks living in the U.K. I believe the U.S is right behind. This deal is really weird I think these Big Brother types are perverts. Bunch of govrment child molesters want to now be peeping toms. To hell with them.

Roke and Siemens
Roke Manor Research is wholly owned by Siemens, however, we also work for many commercial organisations, government departments, and defence agencies.
Roke Manor Research became a Siemens Company following the take-over of Plessey by Siemens and GEC in 1990. In 1991, GEC sold its 50% shareholding and the company became wholly owned by Siemens.
Siemens, headquartered in Germany, is one of the world’s largest electrical engineering and electronics companies. Siemens provides innovative technologies and comprehensive solutions to benefit customers in 190 countries. Founded more than 150 years ago, the company is active in the areas of Information and Communications, Automation and Control, Power, Transportation, Medical, and Lighting.
Extensive research has been conducted in recent years on how radio frequency fields, including those generated by mobile phones, might affect health. A variety of possible effects has been studied, both inside the laboratory and among human populations.
Research indicates that a person who has used a mobile phone for up to 10 years does not have a higher risk of brain tumours or other cancers in the head. This also appears to be the case for someone who has used a mobile phone for more than 10 years, but few persons have used mobile phones for longer than 10 years.
Research has found no evidence that exposure to radio frequency fields at levels below existing safety guidelines could cause symptoms like headaches and dizziness. New data suggests the existence of a “nocebo” effect, an effect caused by the expectation or belief that something is harmful. Few studies have looked at possible health effects in children, despite the growing popularity of mobile phones among the young and concern that children might be more vulnerable because of their still developing nervous system.
There is a growing requirement for individual systems and devices - in the home, in industry, in the defence domain - to be equipped with greater embedded intelligence. Such devices will need to communicate with others for full user benefits to be realised. We provide communications consultancy for networks of autonomous devices and systems. Our services include architectural analysis, protocol analysis, and modelling and simulation, backed up with strong autonomous system domain knowledge. Our world-class commercial communications domain knowledge offers significant cross-domain knowledge transfer, with particular insights and benefits to our defence domain customers.
Smart algorithms from autonomous systems and communications networks research enable robust, self-managing networks to be developed. Our position at the cutting edge of autonomous systems and networks research allows us to provide innovative solutions into one domain based on research undertaken in seemingly unrelated domains.
Vehicle Route Planning
A key challenge for an autonomous vehicle system is the requirement to plan in dynamic and unstructured domains. We have developed architectures and algorithms for modelling the world and for dynamic reasoning at multiple levels to generate and maintain robust route plans. Our AI algorithms are naturally domain independent, and may be tailored to optimise for domain-specific criteria such as energy efficiency.
Real-world systems monitor their own health and their environment as part of typical operation. In many cases the amount of monitoring information to process is overwhelmingly great. We have developed a lightweight bio-inspired anomaly classification architecture, based on the mammalian limbic system. Our architecture can be tailored to introspective health monitoring, or for external threat monitoring.
Power & Energy Management
Power and energy management is a significant engineering challenge for the present and the future. Our power management research draws from a broad basis, ranging from autonomous own-vehicle power management to network resource management algorithms. We are able to offer concept analysis and development for power management at many consumer scales, both in the industrial and defence domains.
Autonomous Soaring The Autonomous Soaring concept describes energy-efficient route planning for autonomous airborne vehicles. An AI planning engine onboard a glider produces route plans to be followed, based on planned and serendipitous energy harvesting from the surrounding atmosphere, without compromising overall mission objectives. Autonomous Soaring has been successfully shown in field trials and software demonstrations. The Autonomous Soaring concept is equally applicable to ground-domain route planning.
STARTLE STARTLE is a cued threat detection system which provides local protection of autonomous vehicles.
The system exploits existing sensor fits and piggybacks on existing data streams to provide early warning of potential threats to own vehicle. STARTLE combines two AI techniques - a lightweight classifier and a goal prover - to direct sensor assets and select processing algorithms to efficiently assess possible threats. The system thus allows for more efficient and more focused use of available processing power. STARTLE can be applied to autonomous external threat monitoring and internal status monitoring for manned and unmanned systems.
