Novel radioactive radiation technology feasibility verification

Project description

Radioactive radiation detectors that can be used more widely

Sources of radiation are all around us all the time. For instance, naturally occurring radioactive materials are present in the earth’s crust, as well as in the floors and walls of our homes and in our food. In high doses, it can be a health hazard. This is why levels need to be monitored. In this context, the EU funded Radiation detector project will develop new nuclear radiation detection technology revolutionising the usability and application locations of the radiation detectors. This will make illicit nuclear material trafficking harder and Europe safer from terrorist attacks.

Objective

Sensinite develops and manufactures nuclear radiation detection technology revolutionizing the usability and application locations of the radiation detectors. With the Sensinite detection technology illicit nuclear material trafficking will be harder and the Europe will be safer from terrorist attacks. The border security of Europe will improve drastically, allowing even 25x higher number of inspected sea containers. Company's clients are manufacturing partners integrating technology of the company to their own end products. The company expects of achieving sales of 35 million EUR by 2023. This grant applied is to fund the study of commercial and technological feasibility.
