Irvine Sensors Corporation has reported operating results for its first quarter of fiscal 2011.
Total revenues for the fiscal 2011 first quarter were $4.3 million (£2.6 million), up 34 per cent from $3.2 million in the first quarter of fiscal 2010.
This is, the firm confirmed, nearly double the approximately $2.2 million total revenues of the immediately preceding quarter that ended October 3rd.
According to the Irvine Sensors Corporation, the revenue increase was primarily due to increased sales of Irvine Sensors' thermal imaging cores.
Meanwhile, ABI Research principal analyst Jonathan Collins claimed recently that wireless sensors in consumer electronics are helping home automation to make it into the mainstream.
The trends taking place globally at present include the inclusion of wireless communications capabilities in home energy meters by utility firms, he explained.
Mr Collins remarked: "Wireless sensor networking communications are already making inroads into the home market and that uptake is set to gain momentum."
