Soflinx, a Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) company, provides software and complete system integration services for the design, implementation and effective management of “smart” Wireless Sensor Networks. Soflinx enables organizations to more effectively collect, analyze and take action on data from sensor networks, as well as cost-effectively manage those networks, today announced the establishment of a strategic relationship with In-Q-Tel, a private, non-profit enterprise funded by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). In-Q-Tel’s mission is to identify and collaborate with companies developing cutting-edge information technologies that serve US national security interests.
Soflinx and In-Q-Tel will work together to provide government organizations with wireless software network solutions that enable a new generation of sensor detection and data integration. Soflinx’s ability to manage extremely large amounts of data, multiple nodes and its ability to distribute intelligence and apply rules at the node itself are important factors in In-Q-Tel’s decision to form a strategic relationship with Soflinx. By collaborating with In-Q-Tel on the development of Wireless Sensor Network solutions that are highly scalable and sensor agnostic, Soflinx will increase the capabilities and security available to Government analysts.
According to Neil Senturia, CEO of Soflinx, “The key problem in Wireless Sensor Networks is to create a self-organizing, self-configuring, and self-healing network that allows massive data management in real-time that finally creates the promise of a completely self-contained and smart mesh network.”
Gilman Louie, CEO of In-Q-Tel, added, “Wireless sensor networks have applications in both the public and private sectors, whether for building management, environmental monitoring, or enhancing public safety. We see significant opportunities to extend and apply their commercial technology in the pursuit of enhanced national security.”
