Neteera has created a unique and innovative sensing technology using the rarely utilized electromagnetic spectrum dubbed the "Terahertz Gap". 
 
Technology
Neteera’s sensing technology is utilizing the untapped sub-THz and THz regions of the electromagnetic spectrum. Terahertz technology is safe as it combines directivity, high-resolution, the ability to sense through visually opaque materials and spectroscopy - it allows for the creation of a new world of sensing with unmatched capabilities.
 
We have completed the development of THz components and software that allows for multiple applications with the following unique advantages:
  • Safe and non-ionizing
    Terahertz photons have much lower levels of energy compared to X-rays and high-frequency ultraviolet waves, providing for a non-ionizing and non-destructive platform.

  • Sensing through visually opaque materials
    Visually opaque non-conductive materials are transparent to our technology allowing for sensing through clothes, furniture and other soft materials, as well as at night and in inclement weather or fog.

  • No light dependency 
    Unlike traditional optical-based imaging systems, Neteera's sensing technology is not impacted by changing lighting conditions.

  • Measuring micro-movements 
    High sensitivity allows for monitoring of micro-movements such as those related to respiration or the pulse waves traveling 
    through the body.

  • Novel imaging
    Different materials 
    reflect differently in Terahertz light. This along with high resolution creates feature-rich imaging solutions that are not light or weather dependent.

  • Molecular spectral fingerprint 
    Most molecules have unique spectral signatures at terahertz frequencies enabling chemical detection from a distance. This feature enables detection of explosives, 
    gases and contraband.
 
Neteera´s technology is highly innovative which can be recognized in various aspects of our technology:
 
  • A CMOS sub-THz sensor which is low in cost and scalable
  • A dual-chip design to reduce cross-talk noise
  • Proprietary chip packaging to eliminate sensitivity to temperature and light waves and to add optics elements on the chip
  • "Antennas on a chip" patented design to improve performance
  • Proprietary optics external to the chip to increase sensitivity to low signals
  • Innovative signal processing and data interpretation software for better functionality
  •   
     
    Components
     
     
     
    Neteera´s unique sub-THz components include a variety of sensors, amplifiers and generators. These components are designed and invented by Neteera providing a spectrum of solutions not currently available in the market.  
     
    Neteera´s 3rd generation sensor components are operational and available in multiple flavors each with a different frequency allowing for multi-spectral detection and adaptable imaging. Each generation is driven by innovation resulting in new sensors with increased performance and expanded capabilities. The components are compact in form while being highly sensitive and reliable.  
     
    Neteera´s sensing technology has the flexibility to be used in many markets.  The company's initial application is a contact-free vital signs monitor which has the ability to read a person's pulse, respiration and heart rate interval without any contact or pressure.  This sensing application can be applied to the Health and Well-Being, IoT, Security and Automotive industries.  Additional imaging applications will be developed geared towards the Homeland and Personal Security markets.    
     
    Our professional team is available to work with each client to develop or fine tune our solutions to our customers' specific needs and challenges.
     
     
     EVK - The Evaluation Kit
    Neteera has developed an evaluation kit to be used by partners to evaluate how Neteera's technology can work within their system and to help in the development of their dedicated applications.  
     
    Neteera's EVK is comprised of two boards for the chipset components.  The boards host the camera and the analog front-end chips with complete power management, control and test access.  
     
    The two boards may be operated separately by external signal sources and data capturing or when connected together and controlled through a USB and an intuitive PC graphical user interface.  The kit enables full access to programming features and data acquisition with no need for additional components.
     
    The camera board mounting is compatible with common optical kinematic holders.
