Cambridge, UK – 18th October 2018 – This week Plextek showcased their mm-Wave Radar on the Government of Dubai stand at GITEX 2018.

The other technology firms that were invited to join the stand were Esharah Etisalat Security Solutions, Airbus and Nokia.

Our Project Engineer Edson DaSilva showed how this technology can be applied for detection of a range of objects, for example:

– people

– vehicles

– UAVs

– even objects as small as a nut and bolt.

Threats such as Foreign Object Debris (FOD) on runways can pose a serious risk to passenger safety meaning this technology is key consideration for organisations.

Edson DaSilva, Project Engineer said:

“Our mm-wave solutions operate in covert frequency bands making them extremely difficult to intercept and have been deployed for diverse security applications, for example, drone detection, sense and avoid, perimeter security, protection of critical national infrastructure, border control and airport protection, and also prevention of contraband drop off at prisons.”

Nick Koiza, Head of the Security Business at Plextek was delighted to have had the opportunity to support the Government of Dubai:

this technology demonstrates our low size, weight and power mm-wave solutions, an area where customers from across the globe have benefited from reliable detection of objects of varying size and speed, including fast moving, small aerial targets.”

Cambridge, UK – 18th September 2018 – Design and innovation consultancy, Plextek have taken part in one of Cambridgeshire’s largest annual charity events, The Chariots of Fire Relay Race to raise money for Cambridge Community Foundation.

Chariots of Fire is a 1.7 mile relay race throughout the colleges of Cambridge University with teams of 6 runners each.

Participating with two teams, “Team Plextrek” and “Team Plextek Plodders”, Plextek have managed to raise over £200.00 in donations.

The money will go towards support services for local young people that have faced difficulties because of poor mental health, bereavement, long-term illness or disability.

Organising the company teams, Alexandra Wright, Bid Manager summarises:

“Chariots of Fire provides a highly enjoyable and fun way of raising money for a great cause. It also promotes a little healthy competition between the local businesses in Cambridge, either through the lap times or the eye-catching costumes.

I’m pleased to say that both teams did really well with Team Plextrek completing the course in a time of 01:11:35 for an overall position of 45 out of 277.

Team Plextek Plodders were close behind, completing the course in a time of 01:16:03 for an overall position of 74 out of 277. Thank you to everyone who donated.”
