IODSAustralian hi-tech company Micro-X announced the first commercial purchase order for an Argus X-ray Camera unit has been received from a Middle Eastern defence and security company.

Delivery of the unit is to occur within the customary delivery cycle, following the final safety compliance certification for the Argus which is close to completion. The receipt of the commercial order follows the Micro-X specialist Argus sales team presenting at a major regional security expo as part of Team Defence Australia, facilitated by the Australian Government’s Australian Defence Export Office.

Micro-X also said it has been awarded the full US$0.6 million contract extension by the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for development of Al software to automate threat detection in the Baggage CT Scanner. This extends the original contract extension of up to US$0.32 million over 10 months announced in the company’s December quarterly activities report. The full contract extension now also includes the optional US$0.28 million extension of data collection and software refinement into explosives detection.

Micro-X Chief Executive Officer Kingsley Hall commented: “It is fitting that our first Argus sale is to a recognised security organisation that embraces disruptive and innovative technologies. Using our NEX Technology, Argus is designed to enable defence, security and law enforcement to detect IE Os and other threats, as well as searching for concealed contraband. Our team continues to progress other customer demonstrations and procurement processes.”
