In its first round of funding, Radio Physics Solutions (RPS) successfully raised £700,000 to design and manufacture its first weapon detection product, MiRTLE.
Headed up by Lord Douglas Dundonald, Radio Physics Solutions designs security scanners, bomb and weapons detectors for law enforcers and governments around the world.
RPS’ imaging devices use extremely high frequency radio waves to ‘see’ through obstacles and clothing, and have further application in radar equipment for aircraft, allowing pilots to fly safely through fog, dust and smoke.
This round was led by Enrique Posner’s investor group.
Where are they now?
RPS has secured its first contract for 10 radio links worth over $250,000. The company has also received significant media coverage, including features in TechCrunch, Forbes and the Independent.
