RE: The tariff classification of the "Dro Doppler Module" from England.

Dear Mr. Sabal:

This classification decision under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS) is being issued in accordance with the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

DATE OF INQUIRY : May 21, 1990.

MERCHANDISE : The "DRO Doppler Module", an X-Band microwave transceiver operating on a frequency of 10.525 GHz serves as a motion detector by the use of the Doppler principle. It is not a stand alone unit but will become a component of a larger item or system where the output signal of the module will be used to trigger a particular system operation. Typical application may include a motion detector for a security system, a person/vehicle detector for a door opener, and an object detector for an automobile back-up collision avoidance system.
