Huntsville, Ala.-based Time Domain and Redwood City, Calif.-based AeroScout Inc. have rolled out a dual-mode UWB and Wi-Fi real time location system solution.

The Ultra-Wi-Fi product offering, which will be available in the end of Q1 2008, features patented dual-mode tags that can roam between Wi-Fi and UWB infrastructures, Ultra-Wi-Fi readers, and a fully integrated software suite for dual-mode location determination.
