We’re proud to announce that Metrasens have today been named as winners of the highest business award in the United Kingdom, The Queen’s Award for Enterprise 2018 in the category of Innovation.

The award recognises the Metrasens’ team’s ground-breaking work in developing advanced screening capabilities designed to enhance safety and security around the world. This is the second consecutive year we have received the Queen’s Award. In 2017, we were recognised in the category of International Trade.

We have installed our cutting edge ferromagnetic detection systems (FMDS) widely around the world. Our innovative approach combines advanced magnetic detection technology with product design that is customised for the specific needs of various customer groups and applications.

Metrasens’ solutions are used for MRI safety in hospitals; in prisons to detect cell phones and other dangerous contraband ; and are increasingly implemented in secure government and commercial facilities to provide physical data security.

Our most recent innovation is a screening system that can be used at a variety of venues – such as sports arenas, large scale events like concerts and at corporate campuses – to detect threats involving weapons of mass casualty , without disrupting the flow of people.

Metrasens CEO, Dr. Simon Goodyear, said: “Our unique technology provides capabilities traditional security systems cannot, and is making a tangible difference in more than 40 countries worldwide,”

“We are constantly looking at new and innovative ways to deploy our core technology, with an intrinsic focus on making people safer through cutting-edge screening methods. To be recognized with the Queen’s Award in the category of Innovation is a testament to the unprecedented advances achieved by our team of physicists and engineers. It is also a perfect complement to the Queen’s Award that we received last year in the International Trade category, in recognition of our successful business growth.”

The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise have been recognised as the UK’s most prestigious business accolades since they were established more than 50 years ago.
