MASER Engineering is participating in the national Dutch GO EFRO-funded “DAISY” project, which stands for “Daring Applications & Innovations in Sensory SYstems”.
In the DAISY project, a consortium of various Dutch partners will work on high-level sensor technology for mass applications.


Duration: 3 years (January 2012 – December 2014).
Project extended with 6 months to June 2015.

Project Overview

The project consortium consists of 13 Dutch partners, forming a well-balanced mix of multinationals, small-medium enterprises, and knowledge institutions and universities. All consortia partners are established in the eastern part of The Netherlands (i.e. in the Gelderland and Overijssel provinces).
Under supervision of Thales Netherlands, a radar module will be developed that can be applied for diverse purposes in various areas. For example, the new developed radar products can be used as coast- or harbor protection, or infrastructure security. Medical applications, like automatic measuring the behavior of people or animals for statistical or psychological purposes, are possible applications of the technology as well. The agro-food sector is participating in the consortium too, as the growth of crops can benefit from the availability of more detailed rainfall data.

Contribution MASER Engineering

Within the DAISY project, MASER Engineering will study the reliability aspects of the developed technology, including the accelerated life test setup, ESD handling requirements and package/device failure analysis.
