Compact Imaging has developed and patented a miniature optical sensor technology called MROTM for the rapidly growing biometric security and mobile health monitoring markets. These markets require small, low-cost, battery-powered non-invasive sensors that can deliver meaningful biometric information from inside the body. MRO addresses this need. MRO was born out of the Compact Imaging team’s extensive experience designing opto-electronic systems for Agilent, Coherent, HP Labs, IBM and the Livermore and Los Alamos National Laboratories. Our ongoing research collaboration with the Tissue Optics and Micro-Circulation Imaging (TOMI) laboratories at National University of Ireland, Galway, has added extensive world-class scientific expertise to the development of MRO.
The team is experienced in technology development and licensing in the areas of optical systems, small opto-electronic devices and advanced signal and image processing techniques. The Company’s technologists have received industry and scientific recognition for their inventions, research and technical accomplishments at leading technology companies and academic research institutions. They have been widely published and are named inventors on over 70 US and foreign patents and patent applications.
