Global Security Challenge : 03 December, 2009  (Company News)
Over 200 members of the security industry attended the awards presentation for the best innovative ideas for global security in 2009
Friday 13 November 2009 was certainly not an 'unlucky' day for everyone!

The day of the eagerly anticipated GSC Security Summit, held at London Business School, saw the winners of the fourth annual Global Security Challenge being chosen and awarded over US$500,000.

The winners were:

- Best Security SME category 2009: Kromek (UK)

Kromek has developed a product family that ranges from systems which can non-invasively identify liquids in containers of any type, right through to advanced technology explosive detection systems.

The two technologies highlighted at the Global Security Challenge were a threat liquid identification system (bottle scanner) which can deal with individual containers and a unit for screening multiple containers.

Kromek wins a cash grant of up to US$400,000, provided by TSWG, US Department of Defense, plus mentorship from Chris Winter, a Partner at New Venture Partners .

- Most Promising Security Start-up category 2009: Adaptive Imaging Technologies (Israel)

Adaptive Imaging Technologies has developed a new Digital Video technology for persistent surveillance. The core benefit is that a single device provides the same functionality as a large number of conventional wide-angle and telescopic cameras.

Adaptive Imaging Technologies wins a US$100,000 cash grant, provided by TSWG, US Department of Defense, plus mentorship from Mike Chalfen, General Partner at Advent Venture Partners.

- Most Promising Security Idea category 2009: Remedium Technologies (Maryland, USA)

Remedium Technologies, Inc. is dedicated to the development of advanced hemostatic and tissue sealant materials. The principals are currently developing a high-pressure sprayable foam hemostat which is able to expand into an injured body cavity, adhering to tissue and stopping hemorrhage rapidly during the expansion process.

Remedium Technologies wins US$10,000, sponsored by Accenture, plus mentorship from Mark Shaheen, Managing Director, at Civitas Group.

The event was attended by over 200 industry professionals, government buyers, investors and entrepreneurs, including representatives from the UK Home Office, the US Department of Defense, the US Navy (ONR Global), BAE Systems, Barclays, HP, Smiths Detection, Paladin Capital and Advent Venture Partners.

Robert Hannigan, Security Adviser to the Prime Minster and Head of Security Intelligence and Resilience, provided the keynote speech. In a comment about the event Mr. Hannigan said: 'The kind of creativity, innovation and drive on display at the GSC Security Summit is the key to keeping ahead in the technological race with terrorists and others who want to harm our citizens"
