Wireless integrated network sensors (WINS) provide distributed network and Internet access to sensors, controls, and processors that are deeply embedded in equipment, facilities, and the environment.

The WINS is a new monitoring and control capability for applications in transportation, manufacturing, health care, environmental monitoring, safety, and border security. WINS combine microsensor technology, low power signal processing, low power computation, and low power/low cost wireless networking capability in a compact system. WINS networks provide sensing, local control, and embedded intelligent systems in structures, materials, and environments.

WINS technology was announced by the House Science Committee as one of the nation's technology breakthroughs in the "Great Advances in Scientific Discovery During the 105th Congress" on 24 September 1998.
