Radiation technology company Kromek Group PLC (LON:KMK) has completed the delivery of an initial 10,000 personal D3S radiation detectors to a US Department of Defense agency. Also, on Monday they announced six new contracts wins worth, in aggregate, around US$3.1mln.
Chief executive Dr Arnab Basu tells Proactive: ''We've worked with the US department of Defense for the last seven years and we feel very proud we've been able to make a material contribution to their mission goals.''
''There'll be a deployment in Washington DC later on this year and further deployments are planned in 2017/2018 - with 2018 being the expected wider rollout within the federal states in the US.'' Dr Basu added.
With regard to the contract wins, he said fundamentally some of them are very important for us because it demonstrates the real progress in all the sectors we operate in - medical, security and nuclear.
This week Kromek also won an award for business innovation. It was handed out on Tuesday night at the Palace of Westminster – commonly known as the Houses of Parliament – where the company demonstrated the detectors to members of parliament, peers of the realm, policy-makers, business leaders and acclaimed physicians.
