 Project objective

Acts of terrorism aim to instil fear into Europe's citizens. Since 2000, approximately 163,000 people have died from global terrorism. In particular, attacks against citizens and urban soft targets have increased as terrorists exploit the ability of autonomous cells and lone individuals to hit civilian targets such as concerts, markets, shopping malls, airports, transport hubs, sports stadia, cinemas, bars, night clubs and tourist resorts. Recent devastating attacks across Europe clearly illustrate the increasing threat that exists.

It is impossible to deploy security personnel in sufficient numbers to protect every location. Even if security personnel are present they currently lack the technology to detect, at a safe range, concealed threats such as person borne improvised explosive devices (PBIEDs), guns and knives. There is an urgent and growing need for a cost effective, high performance, long range, concealed threat detection system.

Radio Physics Solutions Ltd has developed MiRTLE (Millimetre-wave Radar Threat Level Evaluation), the world’s first, high performance, long range (up to 50m), low cost, standoff “concealed threat” detection system for the protection of citizens and critical infrastructure. MiRTLE is capable of screening large groups of people automatically and autonomously, without operator intervention, in real-time. Our highly innovative system detects PBIEDs, guns (including 3D printed) and knives up to a range of 50m in real-time, with targets in motion, all without privacy concerns.

The overall objective of this project is to successfully refine, scale-up and demonstrate our superior technology to our customer base. We are planning to capture an 8% market share of the improvised explosive devices (IED) and weapon detection market, which will in turn generate cumulative revenues of €161m, cumulative EBITDA of €43m by 2025 and create 302 high skilled jobs in Europe.
