Radiation; you can’t see, smell or feel it but it can kill you. Understanding radiation and its risks and benefits can help us, as individuals and as a society, to make informed decisions about the use of radiation and actions to protect ourselves from possible harm. ImiTec Limited specialises in the development and manufacture of novel methods for mapping radiation and can thus make a significant contribution to gaining a better understanding of radiation in the environment
ImiTec’s core capability is its patented Remote Isotopic Analysis System (RIAS) a radiation monitoring system that detects, characterises and maps radiation. RIAS is of interest to clients in the nuclear industry, defence, homeland security and exploration sectors who buy it for the significantly improved capability and speed of response it offers over current systems.
ImiTec, a University of Bristol spin-out Company formed in 2014, is headed by Chris Abbott (Chairman and CEO) a well connected CBRN Specialist with over 40 years’ experience in the Defence, Security and Resilience Sectors. He is supported by two RIAS inventors Professor Tom Scott, Director of the University of Bristol’s Interface Analysis Centre (IAC), and Executive Co-Director of the Bristol-Oxford Nuclear Research Centre, and Dr Oliver Payton who is a Royal Academy of Engineering Research Fellow working jointly in the IAC and the Department of Engineering Mathematics.
