Lingacom Awarded 1 Million Euro for Muon-Based Vehicle Scanning Solution
Lingacom, a developer and manufacturer of muon-based detection solutions, announced that it has been awarded a 1 million Euro contract by the European Commission’s prestigious Horizon 2020 SME Instrument for the development of an advanced vehicle scanning solution.
Lingacom’s technology is based on high-energy natural atmospheric cosmic ray muon particles, which have the highest known penetration levels on earth and are capable of penetrating and exiting all attenuating cargo and vehicles. Through the harnessing of these muon particles, Lingacom is offering a green, passive detection solution designed to meet the global security requirements associated with nuclear and radioactive detection. Lingacom’s unique approach to product design makes the company’s technology complementary with existing inspection systems that deploy high-energy x-rays and radiation portal monitors.
