TO WHOM WHO CONCERN
Thank you for the opportunity to respond to your concerns. The LifeGuards that are in use in China and elsewhere are performing their mission and helped save lives. This is the best reason to ignore a rumor of fraud from an anonymous source. If the critic of our technology is afraid to put his name on the Biggest Fraud document then we question his reasons for sending this out. Our best guess is that it was sent by one of our competitors and trying to commit the biggest fraud. We normally respond to the Sandia report and the other trash on the internet with the following.
• The detector tested was not our current production model – it was a prototype
• Sandia data shows that the detector did localize the target; but did not pin point
o LifeGuard detection showed a high positive correlation to the target when the detections are analyzed using standard statistical methods
• Sandia used a magician/skeptic (James Randi) to design the pin-point test instead of using sound scientific methods such as Receiver Operator Characteristics (ROC)
• Sandia had no expertise in LifeGuard operational principles. The Sandia expert assigned to the evaluation was a video technician not a scientist without any ultra low frequency electric field experience.
o The Sandia technician failed to understand the detection circuit oscillations as being part of the Lifeguards local oscillating circuit within the radio detection principles
• The test is 8 years old and the technology has moved forward
• There is now a long history of sales and other independent test report showing the Sandia Reports to be invalid and erroneous.
All of the negative internet comments stem from the same source, a brief and defective test of a prototype LifeGuard and an erroneous physical tear down of an instrument that were conducted eight years ago by the Sandia National Laboratory in New Mexico.
Sandia canceled a briefing from our Chief Scientist (a Cornell University PhD physicist) about our technology. Instead they consulted with a skeptic debunker of the paranormal – James Randi, who did not even graduate from high school. The LifeGuard that was tested was a prototype and never went into production, the test procedures violated the LifeGuard’s operating instructions, the lab’s mathematical analysis was incorrect and the lab did not report the results of a second test in which the LifeGuard performed flawlessly.
1. Sandia's claim, that the LifeGuard cannot work, is contradicted by:
LAW Engineering Report, 1998
Sense-Off 98 Report, 1998 (TEAMS report for USMC)
Zeebrugge Port Report, 1999
2 – Center for National Response reports conducted by SAIC, 2002 & 2004
State of Georgia Public Safety Center, Test Report, 2006
Plus numerous tests done by governments in Asia (These tests were not shared with DKL, but following the tests, units were purchased and then re-ordered)
2. We do not expect Sandia to admit its erroneous findings.
The second Sandia report or tear down report of a LifeGuard argues that it cannot work, since LifeGuard does not work like a radio. The person doing this report was not qualified to do it, as he was an electrical engineer without an advanced degree. He is not a physicist and has little understanding about the science. A prime example is that he used the wrong method to determine the type of plastic used in LifeGuard that is well known, which resulted in his reporting the wrong type of plastic in his report. The correct test for the type of plastic is well known by a qualified analyst. Some elements that Sandia just got wrong or failed to grasp include:
• Sandia’s analysis of the detection circuit failed to identify the Time Constant of circuit or to quantify the characteristics of the capacitive elements.
• Sandia failed to grasp or acknowledge the basic physics principles of induced polarization charges.
• Sandia failed to grasp the dielectric nature of a living human when reacting to an ultra low frequency field and the influences on electric field gradients
With this report, Sandia showed a total disregard for DKL's proprietary information. Sandia posted some company trade secrets and proprietary information on the Internet. The good news for DKL was that the second report was filled with so many errors it did not assist anyone in their attempt to reverse engineer LifeGuard.
Sandia is managed by the Lockheed Martin Corp., which has developed and licensed a wide variety of sensor systems that compete directly with the DKL LifeGuard.
Dr. Keith Conover has never tested, been trained or used LifeGuard. He simply has parroted the Sandia reports and his mentor Randi. He is a medical doctor and has no degree in engineering or physics. He is not qualified to make any comments about the science behind the LifeGuard. He is an Associate Professor in the medical school.

桑蒂亚(Sandia) 用了一个变戏法的人/怀疑论者(James Randi)来设计定位试验，并没有用象接受器算子特征（Receiver Operator Characteristics: ROC）一样的可靠的科学方法。
以该报告，桑蒂亚(Sandia)表明对DKL专利信息的完全不理会。在因特网上，桑蒂亚(Sandia)张贴了一些公司交易秘密和专有信息。对DKL, 好消息是这第二个报告充满了如此多的错误，以致它不能帮助那些企图改变Life Guard工程师看法的任何人。
