Australia will soon receive a new product from Decision Sciences called Discovery, which is set to revolutionise the way border protection is conducted.
The “game-changing technology”, already in use with the United States, utilises muon particles to effectively scan containers and vehicles in order to detect anomalies or potential threats entering the country.
As described by Decision Sciences, the penetration and material discrimination capabilities of Discovery are unparalleled by technologies that have been historically employed by the maritime industry to combat smuggling and terrorism efforts.
Joining Defence Connect podcast host Phil Tarrant are J3Seven’s Michael Molnar and Decision Sciences’ Geoff Clelland to talk through this technology and its potential for use in Australia.
Enjoy the podcast,
The Defence Connect team
