PALM BEACH, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 13, 2003--
Specially Designed Antenna and Induction-Based Power-Recharging Method Function Properly in Field Testing
Disk-Shaped Prototype is Roughly the Size of a Pacemaker -
Future Miniaturization Expected
Applied Digital Solutions, Inc. (Nasdaq: ADSX), an advanced technology development company, today announced that it has developed and successfully
field tested a working prototype of what the company believes is the first-ever subdermal GPS "personal location device" (PLD).
Field testing and follow-up laboratory testing of the disk-shaped prototype confirm that the specially designed antenna and the induction-based
power-recharging method function properly.
The dimensions of this initial PLD prototype are 2.5 inches in diameter by 0.5 inches in depth, roughly the size of a pacemaker. As the process of
miniaturization proceeds in the coming months, the Company expects to be able to shrink the size of the device to at least one-half and perhaps to as
little as one-tenth the current size.
