OSLO, Norway, April 15 (UPI) -- Norway's Novelda AS says Samsung Thales of South Korea selected its Nanoscale Impulse Radar system for the development of a vehicle-mounted land mine detector.

The high-speed, high-sensitivity NVA6100 Nanoscale Impulse Radar system, unlike other land mine detection systems, can detect objects behind obstacles, making it a complementary or substitute for existing technologies such as ultrasound, video and infrared sensors.

The company said the system has other uses beyond detecting mines, which are a major hazard for civilian populations once a conflict has ended.

"The Novelda Impulse Radar system successfully caters to sensor applications across a range of sectors, including health monitoring, medical diagnosis (including heart beat monitoring and 3-D RF-imaging), automotive and industrial (including distance and road obstacle detection), security surveillance and energy automation and defense," the company said.

Novelda AS is a privately held semiconductor company specializing in nanoscale wireless low-power technology for ultra-high resolution impulse radar. It says it saves developers costs and time by supplying development kits, radar modules and software and by providing development support.
