Haystack In The News
There has been a lot of talk about IoT security, but not much new in the way of ideas for attaining it. Mostly the discussion has been to raise awareness of the need for security, even in the smallest devices, and to encourage designing security in from the very beginning. But now Pat Burns, CEO of Haystack Technologies, has put out a proposal that is intriguing in its simplicity and seems well worth careful consideration. More

A year ago, a startup called Haystack Technologies launched its H-Builder development platform to enable companies and individuals to create solutions based on the Dash7 (ISO 18000-7) standard and OpenTag open-source firmware library for active 433 MHz radio frequency identification tags and readers. But recently, the firm began marketing its own products, the first of which focuses on locating missing pets. The HayTag… More
Pat joined Haystack from Savi Technology where he led marketing, licensing, and alliances for more than six years before and after its acquisition by Lockheed Martin. While at Savi, he spearheaded Savi’s ISO 18000-7 and OEM licensing programs and co-founded the DASH7 Alliance. Prior to Savi, Pat was co-founder of Demandline, a B2B telecom marketplace backed by New Enterprise Associates, and was also a founding member of SkyTel’s Advanced Applications Group, prior to its acquisition by MCI. He has also held positions with ARDIS, a joint venture of IBM and Motorola, as well as positions with the Office of Management and Budget and Office of the Secretary of the Treasury in Washington, D.C. He holds multiple patents in wireless communications and e-commerce and received a bachelor’s degree from American University and an MBA from Kellogg.
JP is the creator of the modern DASH7 specification and the creator of OpenTag, which is the original and de-facto implementation of DASH7. Before starting Haystack, JP moved from the east coast to California in order to work with Pat Burns, at Savi Technology, as an applications engineer for their technology licensing program. JP’s previous life on the east coast began in Washington DC, made a stop at Princeton University to get a B.S. in Electrical Engineering, and finally migrated south to space-coast Florida to work in a passive-RF technology startup. JP currently lives in San Francisco and can sometimes be spotted at the city’s finer cafés and pubs, often wearing DASH7-branded clothing.
Haystack invented “connectionless” low power wireless communications for the Internet of Things. Unlike legacy technologies like ZigBee or WiFi that compromise on essential IoT requirements like low power or long range, Haystack is the first company to have deliver multi-mile range with devices using a coin cell battery that lasts for 3-5 years, all while providing real-time, connectionless two-way communications. Developers for industrial, commercial, government, and consumer products have all used Haystack software to solve a diverse and challenging set of IoT implementation problems.
Haystack licenses its a growing portfolio of U.S. patents related to DASH7 and other wireless communications inventions.
