TrapWire can only be utilised against known targets

Trapwire is registered as a trademark with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. In the submitted document,[5] the system is described in detail. The assumption is that terrorists are vulnerable due to their need to conduct pre-attack surveillance, “such as photographing, measuring and signaling”. Such suspicious activities, as detected in imagery from pan-tilt-zoom cameras or human reports, are entered into a database, using a “10-characteristic description of individuals” or vehicle information. The data is correlated across the network, claiming a “network effect” of increased security due to this correlation. The result is a TrapWire Threat Meter (TIM) level which may be monitored by security personnel. The system distinguishes threat and vulnerability information, the latter of which is not shared through the network.
