Deploy. Depart. Detect.

Our system is built around a patented miniaturised electronics package linked with an advanced software system that uses muon particles to identify, monitor and evaluate any substance.

mDetect devices use patented smart sensors to capture the light from cost-effective plastic scintillators which glow when struck by muons.

Onboard artificial intelligence then reconstructs the path of these muons through multiple layers of scintillators within each detector. The result is an accurate reconstruction of the path each particle from space have taken.

As dense objects preferentially block the muons such structures will effectively cast a shadow on a single device beneath. Regions of low density such as an air gap opening up will be detected as sudden increase in muons arriving from a given direction. We combine this projected density picture from multiple such devices in a process called inversion to give a true 3D image of the structure.

Our software pipeline can simulate the expected muon rate for your situation letting us plan for exactly where and how long our devices are need to provide a detection.

Our Key Features

Our devices are designed to be as easy to use as setting them down in a convenient location close to where our simulation pipeline suggests they can make the optimal measurement.

Our in-built connectivity options allow for automatic connection and relay of information back to mDetect for realtime analysis and detection. Alternatively, each month local staff can connect them to a computer to recharge and transmit their information automatically.

With multiple devices, we can create a 3D image of the density structure allowing identification, monitoring and evaluation.

User friendly

Our devices are designed to be as easy to use as setting them down in a convenient location close to where our simulation pipeline suggests they can make the optimal measurement.

Low power usage

The batteries used in the mDetect device are designed for subzero temperatures and can go without charge for up to a month at a time.

Easy deployment​

Patented miniaturised electronics provide a small and easy to deploy device whilst maintaining a robust design; tested in high humidity and temperature environments such as mines..

Wireless connectivity

Each device has its own accelerometers to determine its true orientation in addition you have wifi / USB or ethernet then they will automatically connect and relay information back to mDetect for realtime analysis and detection.

Our technology package has potential applications to a wide range of contexts and industries.  

Mining and Mineral Exploration

A particularly versatile technology in the mining and mineral exploration sector, this technology can detect unknown ore bodies in existing sites or identify air gaps to help prevent disasters in active sites. This is a safe, cost-effective and adaptable technology platform for transforming the mining sector.

Construction and Infrastructure​

In construction and infrastructure projects, this technology could be used to identify changes in structural integrity of buildings and infrastructure following earthquakes through to identifying sinkholes/subsidence as well as monitoring of water tables in construction sites.

Defence
Applications

With the advantageous ability to deploy the technology platform for long-term passive detection and identification both on land and at sea, mDetect has the capabilities to support the  defence and security sectors.
