MOSCOW /PRNewswire/ -- OJSC Intersoft Evrasia, DO-RA project operator and developer, announces that it has attracted $1 million investment from Skolkovo Fund and SmartLogic Group. The funds will be channeled toward developing a new Do-Ra device prototype. This will be a domestic, wide-range cross-platform device, with a dosimeter-radiometer function DO-RA.Si, with a solid silicon sensor. It will have inductive charging and work via wireless electronic protocols Bluetooth Low Energy, NFC, with all mobile devices.
Intersoft Evrasia was established in March 2011 to develop innovative products for smartphone's, specifically portable Do-Ra devices that function as a dosimeter-radiometer. In October 2011, the company moved to Skolkovo, a nuclear technology cluster. In December, the Do-Ra project received the fund's mini grant of 1,35 million rubles.
From the Do-Ra project launch, there was a line of devices created for different types of smartphones, with engineering documentation for mass production of the Do-Ra device built on Geiger-Müller counter in European IPC standard. In addition, a number of mobile applications—DO-RA.Soft GM, with interfaces in 23 languages, for platforms such as iOS, Android, WP7, JavaME, BlackBerry, Symbian, and Bada, as well as for OC: Windows/Linux/MacOS—were developed to work with it. All DO-RA.Soft applications are available for download from appropriate Internet stores.
Within the frame of DO-RA project, the company received 24 patents and certificates in Russia and the first international patent in Ukraine. Patents in Korea, Japan, the U.S., and the European Union are in the last stages of being issued.
At the moment, the company is dynamically developing and is in search of partners and investors to organize production and international distribution of the device.
"The major intellectual asset," notes Vladimir Elin , the inventor and founder Intersoft Evrasia, "is a series of unique solutions for smartphones developed by the project team, including an engineering solution for compact ionizing radiation detectors, electronic reading, and digital data transmission to smartphones and computers. This will allow the company, within 1–2 years, to start producing inexpensive domestic ionizing radiation detectors with dosimeter-radiometer function that will possess characteristics close to professional ones in precision, receptiveness, and measurement range for ionizing radiation, while simple and affordable enough for wide spectrum of consumers."
