The most important goal for the Jaguar timing company is to read as many chips as possible in every condition. Jaguar uses a truss setup with antennas above the participants at the timing locations to read their chips instead of using mats or ramps. They don't risk tripping runners by using mats that move and curl up in the sun. A runner will be read by up to eight antennas at once. Even if one antenna fails, you won't have to worry about missing a chip time. The antennas can read the chip from 50 feet away. The chips are read many times before the runner crosses each timing location, which increases the read success. The antennas can be placed above and to the side of the race course. Jaguar claims highest accuracy with chip times recorded to the 1,000th/second. In the next year alone, it is estimated that Jaguar may be used at over 5,000 races around the world.
