Vision: Possible

Imagine a low-cost radar sensor that could be affixed to a firefighter's helmet to detect an unconscious or incapacitated person through walls and smoke. Thanks to our company's engineers who created the world's first millimeter-wave radar system on chip, our customers can integrate radar sensing technology into an array of applications that improve safety on the road and in factories, and could even help firefighters save lives.
