GRANT NUMBER: 101021812

DURATION: 1 May 2021 – 30 April 2025


FOCUS AREA: detection of illegal/hazardous goods, cargo inspection

The purpose of the project is to develop and validate a new high-technology CRT (Cosmic-ray tomography) scanner for border guard, customs and other Law Enforcement Agencies, that enables safe and fast screening, detection and identification of hazardous, illegal and contraband goods as well as hidden persons in up to 20’ ISO containers.

The detection capability is based on using high accuracy sensors for particle tracking in combination with beyond state-of-the art tomographic reconstruction and material classification algorithms.

Foreseeable Outcomes:

  • Development and validation of a Multi-Functional Passive Detection System (Cosmic-ray tomography scanner) for fast and safe inspection of large number of cargos.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 101021866
