[Company strength]
We are engaged in the development of microwave sensors; that is, sensors that use microwave signal processing technology. We supply sensing technology suited to a variety of applications, including safety monitoring, distance measurement and security. We also respond to a variety of applications, such as detection of foreign matter, printing inspection and shape inspection. And we can design and develop tailor-made image processing boards to meet customers' requirements in the field of image processing technology as well.

[Business description]
Our company develops and manufactures microcomputer system hardware and software, image processing systems and communication systems. We also develop industrial electronic control and inspection devices for manufacturing, develop color management systems, supply OEM products and handle engineering operations relating to the above.

Design, development and manufacturing

[Strength of products/technologies]
<Microwave sensors> These use the FM-CW method and detect targets by distance and reflection level. This type of sensing, through electronic waves, provides high reliability with few false positives, even under severe climatic conditions such as rain, wind, snow and fog.
<Image based intrusion monitor> This is a fanless, standalone unit that can automatically track intruders through high speed image analysis. It enables users to analyze filmed images in real time to monitor intrusions by humans or others.

[Representative's message]
Our management vision is to become the leading manufacturer in a global niche market, and to disseminate information to the world from Takamatsu in Shikoku. The basic concept is to harness microelectronics technology to create innovative products that contribute to the safety and security of the world. We have been developing highly reliable sensors amid the cries for increased security that have arisen since the 9/11 attacks in the United States. And we have established a long track record in supplying security products to important public facilities.  Dedicated staff in our Tokyo Branch are ready to respond to the needs of our customers for market development and overseas expansion.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
The head office sales department serves as the base for the gathering and central management of customer information, both new and existing. We have also established a Tokyo Branch to respond to the large companies that are concentrated around Tokyo. Dedicated personnel in this branch also handle inquiries from overseas companies. Technical staff members are prepared to make field visits as needed, domestically or overseas, to conduct consultations and resolve any issues that may arise.
