Standards and specs | UWB | A house divided: "The work on ultrawideband, or UWB, standards has been going on for a while. The technology has been in use for decades. It was considered a military secret early on, because it has applications such as 'spotting stealth planes' and 'looking through walls.' However, the broader demands of commerce are coming into play. Discussions of UWB as a consumer technology don't go back as far, but there are IEEE meetings on the topic going back at least to 1998. The 802.15.3a working group, specifically working on an ultrawideband standard, was authorized in 2002. "
