I need to look back where you mean this, but {rIS} somehow means "making 
a crackling sound", so it can surely be used for any kind of humming or 
crackling device, and also anything that is emitting something besides 
of sound or radioation. To detect a warp signature, you actually detect 
that the warpdrive is {rIS}ing.
