Abstract:

SI2 Technologies, Inc. (SI2) proposes the use of innovative array of sensor suites for ASW. Each sensor suite will contain two sensors, which will provide the system with an extremely low false alarm rate (FAR). An inexpensive integrated sensor suite isnow possible to fabricate due to recent advances in both conductive polymer and Direct Write technologies that will enable SI2 to cost effectively fabricate high volumes of these sensor suites. By reducing the cost of electronic devices and using aflexible substrate, it will become possible to distribute electronics over the surface of the sensor suite, giving and additional saving of space over conventionally packaged electronic devices. The proposed array of low cost integrated sensor suiteswill offer greater reliability at lower cost for ASW. The enabling technology, the proposed low power system electronics could provide additional capabilities to many systems. Additionally, sensor suites could be fabricated for applications other thatASW.This technology also has potential in the commercial sector for embedded sensors, logic and communications systems where cost, space, weight and power are constrained.
