Business description: Crossbow Technology is a leading supplier of inertial sensor systems for aviation, land, and marine applications and other instrumentation sensors as well as the leading full solutions supplier in the wireless sensor networking arena and the only manufacturer of smart dust wireless sensors. Crossbow has for years been at the forefront of creating and deploying smaller, smarter, wireless sensing devices and mesh networking platforms for large scale defense, environmental, agricultural, industrial monitoring and control, building automation, security and asset tracking applications. Crossbow’s open architecture, TinyOS-based platform, enables highly intelligent multi-sensing devices to dynamically and reliably self-organize to efficiently capture and send detailed physical data anywhere, anytime. This transformation in how and where we are able to gather ever more specific physical information has profoundly affected how sensors are used and the types of data that are possible to gather.
