- MM-Imager is a THz passive detection camera that allows real-time detection of hidden objects on individuals. It is an unique innovative solution, as it can detect any type of objects hidden between body and cloths (metals, ceramic knife, explosive gel, liquid and powder) thus increasing the efficiency of security checking and also following the latest technologies and materials used by terrorist organizations. Unlike traditional technologies, MM-Imager is a passive solution that does not emit any wave, it is therefore completely harmless to people.
- DNA Drone is a complete solution for detection, identification and neutralization of UAV threats. It is composed of three complementary technological blocks that can work together or in stand-alone configuration : o a brand new type 4D THz radar specifically designed for drone detection, o a radio-frequency sensor based on artificial intelligence to detect the drone and its pilot o jamming devices, MAJES and/or NEROD, for drone neutralization. These innovative solutions perfectly respond to Qatar security needs and other countries of the region. MC2 Technologies’ products provide law enforcement agencies with the best tools to ensure the safety of citizens against new terrorist modus operandi (e.g ceramic knife attacks, explosive drone attacks).
