Lingacom is an early stage technology company based outside of Tel Aviv, which is harnessing the power of Cosmic Ray Muon particles for the development of a patented passive detection system aimed at identifying shielded materials inside vehicles, airplanes, and shipping containers.
As the sun’s rays hit the earth’s atmosphere, muon particles are created, which due to their weight, fall to the earth. In this descent, the muons penetrate everything – buildings, cars, and even people. Because these particles are naturally occurring, they have no adverse effect on humans or objects and therefore require no protective layering or infrastructure, unlike radiation. Through the research of Lingacom’s globally renowned founders, the company has come to understand that as these muon particles fall and penetrate objects, they deflect and change direction. The angle at which these muons deflect tells a great deal about the material with which those particles collided, thus providing security personnel with a more accurate, reliable, and cost-effective way of determining whether a scanned vehicle or object contains harmful (even shielded) material.
Lingacom’s scanning and detection capabilities are applicable at over 20,000 sites associated with borders, air transportation, critical infrastructure, police, civil events protection, and high-value enterprises and corporations. The company also has agreements with global providers of conventional detection methods as their provider of nuclear material detection capability.
