Pioneers. Inventors. Doers.
Our history in the low power IoT began at Savi Technology, where we brought wireless supply chain visibility to defense customers around the world. After Savi’s acquisition by Lockheed Martin, we began in earnest to solve the problem that led us to start Haystack in 2010. At that time, the low power wireless industry was dominated by a handful of outdated protocols that were not applicable to wide area or mobile wireless IoT applications. Moreover, those technologies all but ignored requirements like public key cryptography, real-time indoor location, multicast queries, and other features.
So we invented DASH7, launched the DASH7 Alliance to standardize the technology, filed patents, and built the first DASH7 firmware stack, OpenTag. At Haystack we set out with the ambitious goal of integrating DASH7 with near-field communications radios (it’s hard!) and prototyping a new hardware concept, HayTag 1.0.
Inventing the impossible.
Sharing our breakthroughs.
Today, Haystack is the driving force behind many DASH7 activities and projects around the world, with a mission to help companies of all sizes realize their wireless vision using DASH7. For developers and integrators interested in working with us, we offer both completed OEM hardware products our software stack and related intellectual property. We also offer product design and customization services as well as ongoing developer support.
We are based in San Mateo, California and are privately funded.
