Novelda Provides Innovative Vulnerable Target Security with 4.5M USD JSC KBOR Contract

The Industrial Research and Development (IRD) Project "Perimeter Control Sensor and Opaque Environment Monitoring Sensor"; to which Innovation Norway has granted funding is a cooperation between Novelda and a demanding Client Company; JSC Design Bureau of experimental work – KBOR, Moscow, Russia.

 

The IRD customer partner KBOR faces new challenges with securing infrastructure and other vulnerable targets with existing customers, including in conjunction with the Winter Olympics in Sochi February 2014. The project's goal is a radar sensor to monitor the surroundings around buildings, critical infrastructure, and other potential terrorist targets to ensure that human and large material values are not lost.

“The Novelda NVA6000 series Impulse Radar transceivers are cutting-edge radar transceivers that incorporate extremely high frame rate and accuracy, in addition to unique penetration capabilities. Integrated on a single chip; this radar transceivers transmits pulses of high bandwidth,” says Novelda’s CMO Aage Kalsæg.

In comparison to traditional technology, the Novelda NVA6000 Impulse Radar transceiver offers several improvements and value added features.

The ability to detect objects behind obstacles, coupled with increased speed and high sensitivity, not only makes it complementary and/or a substitute for existing technologies such as ultrasound, video and infrared sensors, but it has catered new areas of applications as well.

The Novelda Impulse Radar transceiver successfully caters to sensor applications across a range of sectors including health monitoring (including stress and pulse monitoring), medical diagnosis (including heart beat monitoring and 3D RF-imaging), automotive and industrial (including distance and road obstacle detection), security surveillance (such as motion detection), and energy automation and defense.

“Unlike technologies that demand free visibility, Novelda NVA6000 Impulse Radar transceiver’s ability to detect objects behind obstacles, eliminates the need to clean lenses, thus ensuring cost savings for customers,” concludes Kalsæg. “In addition, Novelda saves costs and time for developers by supplying development kits, Radar modules and software, and providing development support for the entire range of available chips.”
