Currently, Eureka is actively engaged in the development of two key technologies, both of which have potential application in defense, homeland security, law enforcement, search and rescue, and commercial markets.
For the past few years, Eureka has been developing a novel approach toward impeding the progress of suspicious ground vehicles. Termed the High-Power Electromagnetic System for Stopping Vehicles (HPEMS), Eureka’s technology uses a compact, tunable power source and a high-gain antenna to beam microwave energy in the direction of targeted vehicles. Once emitted, these electromagnetic waves bring vehicles to a halt by inducing disabling currents through their ignition systems. Eureka envisions several key applications for HPEMS: non-cooperative vehicle interdiction, non-lethal area denial, neutralization of IEDs, and others.
Eureka is also developing a unique system that combines synthetic aperture radar with ultrawideband technology to obtain high-resolution images through walls and ground. Eureka’s “through-the-wall” sensor will be capable of “seeing” through materials as diverse as drywall, wood, concrete, and brick, enabling its users to remotely view personnel, weapons, and other targets at very high standoff ranges in remote, clandestine fashion. This technology, the high-resolution transient impulse Synthetic Aperture Radar (ImpSAR), also promises to strengthen military operations by facilitating the identification of underground structures such as bunkers and caves, as well as by detecting and pinpointing the location of hostages, hidden armament, landmines, and unexploded ordnance (UXO).
