TiaLinx Inc. won an Army Phase-II contract for its handheld precision target, motion detection technology

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., 10 Nov. 2009. TiaLinx Inc., a developer of millimeter-wave integrated radio and antenna arrays, won a phase II contract from the Department of Army for development of a miniaturized antenna array at V-band. TiaLinx engineers will incorporate the antenna system into the company's flagship Eagle60 family of products, to improve the performance of these ultra-wideband (UWB), radio-frequency (RF) imaging systems.

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., 10 Nov. 2009. TiaLinx Inc., a developer of millimeter-wave integrated radio and antenna arrays, won a phase II contract from the Department of Army for development of a miniaturized antenna array at V-band. TiaLinx engineers will incorporate the antenna system into the company's flagship Eagle60 family of products, to improve the performance of these ultra-wideband (UWB), radio-frequency (RF) imaging systems.

"The Army's award enables design, implementation, and integration of the miniaturized antenna array to the Eagle60 ultra-wideband, radio-frequency system, while simultaneously enhancing associated signal processing algorithms that provide RF imaging of fine dimension obscured objects," says Dr. Fred Mohamadi, founder and CEO of TiaLinx. "TiaLinx's miniaturized mm-wave RF distributed sensor technology has enabled the real-time imaging of live object movements behind walls or traffic in a tunnel."

The radar will be deployed to address detection of visually obstructed unexploded ordnances and for surveillance of desired objects in land, sea surface, and air operations, says a representative. The benefit of such a system is agnostic operations under deteriorated environmental conditions including fog, rain, and smog.

In addition to a multitude of applications in various areas of conflict, says a representative, the system is suitable for regions that suffer from an epidemic of landmines and unexploded ordnances. The mm-wave radar and its associated RF imaging capability can be used to address the eradication of mines and save innocent lives.
