This technology is for wireless networking and permits wireless communications at faster rates (in the presence of interference), at longer distances, and using less power (saving battery power in low power devices). This is achieved at the expense of slightly more complex hardware and software...

This is used for real-time detection of explosive threats. It is an effective detection technology that will speed up the detection process, maximise reliability, minimise false alarms, and improve accuracy to discriminate threats from other objects and debris. The multi-sensors will require...

During the refinement process, coal plants produce a fine coal that is often considered a waste product. Green Coal has two applications. Firstly, to produce briquettes from the fine coal which are suitable for industrial applications. Secondly, Green Coal can be purposed to absorbing harmful...

Optimal crop yield is pivotal to meeting market food demands and increasing the cost efficacy for farmers. The REDgrow technology is intended to manipulate the transmittance spectra, or wavelength, of light in order to reach the photosynthetic region of plants. A part of this technology is the...

Purify Effluent Water DECONT-Aâ„¢ is a disinfectant, which is enhanced by the addition of a natural anti-microbial compound. It has been specifically formulated for use in the disinfection of industrial waters, enabling industrial sites to treat discard water for safer disposal. As such this...
