MSSI Patents Ultra Wideband RFID and Tracking System

Multispectral Solutions, Inc. (MSSI) announced May 10 that it has been awarded a patent which permits the rapid acquisition of RFID tag transmissions enabling the monitoring and precise (centimeter) localization of large numbers of tags, even in severe multipath environments. This newly patented technology has been incorporated into MSSI's ultra wideband (UWB) Precision Asset Location System products, including its latest "Sapphire" line of RFID/tracking solutions.

"This latest patent issued to MSSI further validates our technology vision and innovation," said Dr. Robert J. Fontana, MSSI president and CEO. "MSSI will continue to address the challenges of providing affordable, high accuracy, high reliability, RFID and precision tracking solutions to our customers."

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office granted the patent, entitled "Object Location System and Method" to MSSI for its unique technology advancements in UWB-based precision localization. The patent, filed back in October 2001, is based upon low power, transmit-only UWB tag technology and compliments previous MSSI patents for precision localization utilizing dual function transmit/receive tags.
