Analog Devices Inc. (ADI) introduced a wireless vibration sensing system that allows industrial systems operators to remotely monitor production equipment health, improve system performance, and reduce maintenance costs. The new networked system includes the ADIS16229 iSensor(R) wireless vibration sensor node, which combines dual-axis digital MEMs (micro-electro mechanical systems) acceleration sensing with advanced frequency-domain and time-domain signal processing.
L-3 WESCAM unveiled its new land vehicle surveillance system, the MX™-LVSS, at CANSEC, Canada’s largest defence and security trade show, in the outside display area, booth 2019. Based on L-3 WESCAM’s industry-leading MXSeries of multi-spectral, highly stabilized imaging systems, the MX-LVSS is a modular and rugged solution consisting of low-risk, battle-proven, commercial-off-the-shelf subsystemscurrently operating in the world’s harshest terrains and climates.
Texas Instruments Inc. (TI), leading the industry with the most complete wireless connectivity portfolio for embedded applications, announced the extension of its remote control solutions offering with a new Bluetooth® low energy advanced remote control kit. As a technology, Bluetooth low energy allows for remotes with mouse-like pointing and keyboard functionality as well as gesture-, touch- and motion-based input controls so users can take their viewing and gaming experience to the next level.
CRFS has been named as the winner of a 2013 Queen's Award for Enterprise, International Trade. The award recognizes the success of the company's international strategy in establishing itself as a major exporter of spectrum monitoring and surveillance technology.
RF Monolithics Inc. (a subsidiary of Murata Electronics North America Inc.) (“RFM” or “the company”), a provider of solutions-driven, technology-enabled RF technologies for machine-to-machine (M2M) and wireless communications, introduced the next generation of its wireless sensor networking platform products -- the SN-4 series of battery-powered wireless sensor nodes. The SN-4 provides 4 channels of sensor inputs and transmits the data back to access points, Ethernet, or Cellular gateways.
Fast, precise, highly linear – users working with a frequency range over 67 GHz now also benefit from the unique features of the thermal power sensors from Rohde & Schwarz. The new R&S NRP-Z58 is the world's first power sensor that covers the frequency range continuously from DC to 110 GHz.
SAGE Millimeter's model SSP-24303-42-D1 is a low cost, production ready K-Band FMCW ranging and directional sensor module. The center frequency of the module is set at 24.125 GHz with +/-150 MHz frequency modulation bandwidth and +3 dBm nominal output power. The sensor operates from a single +5 .0 Vdc power supplier and typically draws 250-mA current and requires 0 to +15 volts voltage swing for electrical tuning.
Blighter Surveillance Systems has unveiled a new multi-language version of its BlighterView sensor and control software.
Cassidian and Northrop Grumman reach a milestone with the first full system test flight of EuroHawk® unmanned aircraft system equipped with signals intelligence advanced sensors for detection of radar and communication emitters.
Linear Technology’s Dust Networks® product group introduces the SmartMesh™ LTC5800 (system-on-chip) and LTP5900 (module) families, the industry’s lowest power IEEE 802.15.4E compliant wireless sensor networking products. SmartMesh ICs and modules enable tiny sensor “motes” to be designed with a battery life of over 10 years, while companion network manager components enable the development of highly robust and secure wireless sensor networks (WSN).
