Mesh sensor network reaches US security challenge final

Innovative Wireless Technologies : 15 May, 2009  (New Product)
The Coyote UGS wireless sensor mesh network for border security has reached the finals of the 2009 American Security Challenge
Mesh sensor network reaches US security challenge final
Innovative Wireless Technologies (IWT) has been selected from over 200 applicants as a finalist in the 2009 American Security Challenge for its revolutionary Coyote Unattended Ground Sensor (Coyote UGS) System for Border Security and Infrastructure protection. The Coyote UGS System dramatically improves border and infrastructure security by enabling surveillance of 'blind spots'. It also reduces the burden on agents tasked with deploying and maintaining sensor systems. Coyote UGS represents a potential savings of tens of millions of dollars to taxpayers.

"We have created a game changing monitoring and security system for border agents based on our expertise in large scale, low power wireless mesh sensor networks," says Eric Hansen, IWT CEO. After 18 months of development funded by private investment, IWT achieved the goal of a revolutionary sensor system, the Coyote UGS, which outperforms legacy systems with:

* New operational capabilities to monitor and secure the 'tough to reach' holes in the border
* Self forming/self healing mesh network that is easy to deploy, requiring no advance network planning
* Lowest cost per mile deployment of sensor systems
* Low power design with 4x improvement in operating life to reduce maintenance costs
* New and better sensing algorithms to detect ever changing threats
* Network scalability and remote programming that virtually eliminates the need for traditional network infrastructure

"With the critical border situation, demands on CPB agents are tremendous, so any system that reduces the burden on the agent while enhancing security is compelling," according to John Gargasz, IWT Director of Business Development. As one Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) agent put it, "This system will change the way we do our job."

IWT is pleased to be recognized by the American Security Challenge for its Coyote UGS innovation. The objective of the Challenge is to increase the visibility of innovative technology and help the commercialization process so that such technology can reach the marketplace faster to protect our citizens and critical assets. The American Security Challenge will host its second annual event May 21, 2009 at the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington, DC.
