Product Development from Start to Success


See the Success First Hand!

Since 1990, clients have come to us at different stages of product development. They've come to rely on Paragon Innovations to deliver engineering and product development expertise and help them bring their ideas to market. The following highlights some of the projects we've developed for our clients.


Project & Description
Product Photo

—"Paragon created a system that allows dedicated vehicle diagnostic and repair tools to be used remotely. The resulting product frees independent repair businesses to service the computer systems on a vehicle without having to invest in expensive, manufacturer specific test tools. To create this product, Paragon developed methodologies to quickly analyze new vehicle service protocols and develop applications software that allows the tools to operate as if they were co-located with the vehicle being serviced."

CSPP Eyeseal

—Paragon created this system which uses proprietary sensing systems to monitor entry (normal and clandestine) into a shipping container. These entry events are recorded and time stamped in non volatile memory and are also transmitted via a GSM modem to a backend server. Location is determined using cell phone tower location and triangulation. This device has the unique ability to operate inside a metal cargo container without the use of external antennas.
