The Skinny R&D Basic Electronics Applications class is for those individuals who want to be challenged to solve technical operational problems by leveraging a knowledge of electronics. This class teaches basics electronics, schematic reading, electronic design, and soldering by challenging students to build low cost, effective counter-surveillance gear. Students of all electronics skill levels are welcome to attend.

At the conclusion of this course students will be able to build their own countermeasures gear from low cost, commercial-off-the-shelf materials and will improve their depth of knowledge in regards to fundamental and esoteric attack strategies.

Topics will include:

  • Ultrasound
  • Alternate Light Source (ALS)
  • Light Manipulation
  • Infrared Light
  • Lens Detection
  • RF Detection
  • Electronic Design and Prototyping

Student will receive an electronics kit for each topic covered, headphones, all software used in class, and an electronic component tool bag to allow for continued development after class.
