FTL develops and builds sensors for everyday use aboard ships, in medical clinics, and out in the field. These systems incorporate hardware, including elements for probing a target to gain information without disrupting it, and software, including systems for acquiring, processing, and presenting the resulting information to aid the user. The links below provide an introduction to the many sensor projects FTL has completed. Each one represents an unsolved sensing challenge that FTL developed an approach, prototype, and deployable system to address.
