TiaLinx Launches Breathing Detector for Live Objects Hidden in Cargo Containers

TiaLinx Inc., a developer of remotely controlled object detection radars, announced the launch of the OWL1-A, which features an ultra-sensitive radio frequency beam capable of detecting the slightest motion, such as the breathing of a person confined in a container.

The lightweight handheld sensor system with remote display screen provides an ultra-wideband (UWB) radio frequency beam that can detect a variety of live objects concealed inside a container. OWL1-A can provide images of activity detected at various locations within the container from live objects. The system is ideal for rapid screening of cargo containers deployed on land transportation vehicles, airplanes and sea vessels.

Through a software-controlled interface, which is integrated into a laptop and deployed remotely, the OWL1-A can also be integrated with cranes that load and unload cargo containers. This would allow for rapid screening of hiding individuals automatically and removing the need for expensive and bulky X-ray screening systems.

The GHz RF scanner transmits wideband signals that are highly directional and are reflected from the human body. The received signals over the wide spectrum are captured and processed in an integrated digital signal processor.

"OWL1-A's introduction is another breakthrough in miniaturization of advanced UWB RF sensors pioneered by TiaLinx for the last four years. A large number of TiaLinx's patents have been used to develop the OWL1-A detector and its imaging unit. Further product evolution for extended applications of this technology, such as low-cost advanced screening, will be the strategic focus of TiaLinx globally," commented Fred Mohamadi, founder and CEO of TiaLinx. "TiaLinx is constantly miniaturizing and upscaling its UWB RF imaging core competence to enable standoff screening of a premise or individuals for enhanced situational awareness and the prevention of human smuggling."
