Midstream Technology creates and commercializes new technology for remote sensing, biometrics, acoustics, and radio frequency identification (RFID) - the technologies of seeing things, identifying things and tracking things. One week you will find us engineering a new RFID wristband to better track wee monsters at waterparks, and the next week you will find us setting up new acoustic technology to keep birds from running into wind turbines.
We work on a variety of programs that involve innovations in applied science, and while it sounds like a lot of different things, it is all related to waves. Sound waves, radio waves, light waves - all of these form the foundation of a lot of our work. We also have a great deal of software development, integration, and engineering expertise because almost every solution requires it - whether it is creating new integrated circuits, getting new iris scanners to work with access control technology, or integrating Inventory software with new RFID software and hardware tracking items in your warehouse.
Humans and other animals don't always mix well, and this is especially true of wild birds. Each year billions of birds are killed worldwide from running into buildings and towers, and birds also cause a substantial amount of damage to various crops and airplanes.
Sonic Nets is a benign method of deterring animals from an area with acoustic technology. Conventional and parametric speakers project unique sounds that interfere with how animals talk. That interference causes the animals to go around and leave an area - without habituating to the sounds.
Midstream Technology is commercializing Sonic Nets to reduce bird and animal damage to airplanes, agriculture and aquaculture, and reduce animal mortality from running into man-made structures.
