The background technology to Greyscan, Scantex, has been awarded the inaugural 2015 Innovative Tasmania Awards, announced in Launceston. These awards recognise five categories for innovations that have had an impact on Tasmania. Categories include Food and Beverage Production; Science, Technology and Transport; Sport, Leisure and The Arts; Politics, Governance and Security; and Community and Environment.
Grey Innovation was delighted to learn that Scantex won the category for innovation within Politics, Governance and Security. This technology is a world first in explosive detection due to its ability to detect military, commercial, and homemade inorganic explosives. This overcomes limitations with existing screening techniques which struggle to detect these forms of explosives.
