Huntsville, Ala.-based Time Domain released a real-time location system (RTLS) that can read thousands of small, active RFID tags per second through multiple walls with a precision of 12-36 inches, according to the company.

Time Domain says its new Precision Location Ultra Wideband System (PLUS) product line will enable RTLS solutions to move from an "approximate presence” technology to a solution that precisely locates and monitors the interaction of people and assets for a host of new healthcare applications.

The new PLUS products are currently being trialed in several healthcare applications, including Washington Hospital Center, a not-for-profit 926-bed acute care teaching and research hospital based in Washington, D.C.
