Toumaz has signed an agreement to supply its Telran ultra low power wireless radio chip to Milgenco.

Milgenco is a UK-based manufacturer of telemetry and power supply technology for the defence sector. It will use Toumaz’s wireless chip in a system for  monitoring heart-rate, body temperature and other biometric aspects of troops in and around military vehicles.

 “We chose Telran because it offers an ultra-low power solution with extremely long battery life and a range of up to 100m from the vehicle,” said Simon Albury, Milgenco managing director.

“In typical biometric monitoring usage the wristband monitor developed by Milgenco will last for up to 18 months using just a small button battery,” said Professor Chris Toumazou, Toumaz chief executive.

Milgenco is also exploring using the same combined telemetry and bio-monitoring technology in first responder markets such as fire, police and ambulance services. This will allow central control rooms and dispatch centres to immediately see if a first responder has been injured and alert other responders nearby to assist.    

“We can offer customers a complete integrated solution that remotely monitors vehicle position, engine and vehicle health and now, most importantly, crew condition and well-being,” said Albury.
