Research Institution
Kairos Microsystems proposes a rugged low power"postage stamp"sized wireless micro-sensor node capable of 20m node to node and 1km node to base station communication with an operating life of one year. The small physical structure (16.5x16x4mm) is visually non-obvious and the spread spectrum signal is difficult to detect. It may be used as a point sensor or as an array of sensors that report observations to a base station (which may be a UAV), or as a wireless link that replaces wiring. With a price potential of about $3, it can be deployed as a disposable item and used to cover large areas affordably BENEFIT: Kairos micro-sensors are suitable for covert military uses, on-soldier medical monitoring, equipment monitoring, perimeter/area monitoring, and urban warfare building clearance monitoring. Alternate packaging of the micro-sensor will allow dispensing from a UAV into hostile territories.
