What is Jaguar?

Jaguar is a state of the art timing system that utilizes a disposable RFID timing chip that can be attached to a race bib, bike plate, or bike helmet. The disposable chip requires no battery, is lighter than a feather and has a built in microprocessor customized to ensure maximum reads even during the most challenging of conditions. Jaguar also has ankle-strap chips for swimming and multi-sport events.

The Jaguar system can time every imaginable type of event including road running races of any distance, cross country meets, trail run races, road cycling and time trials, mountain bike races, downhill and cross-country skiing, kayaking, and almost every other sport that involves movement and time.


How does the Jaguar System work?

Jaguar uses ultra-efficient antennas that are placed above and beside the finish line and other timing locations such as start and split points.  Using specially customized RFID readers, Jaguar can read the disposable timing chips in the most demanding environment - on the human body.  Being made mostly of water, the human body does a great job of absorbing RF energy.  That makes it extremely difficult to read the very low-power signal reflected back from a timing chip.  Jaguar has the engineering technology that allows disposable bib chips to work extraordinarily well.
