Manchester Facility to Produce Innovative MiRTLE® Threat Detection Systems for European, Middle East and Asian Markets

Radio Physics, provider of millimeter wave technology solutions for the defense, aerospace and security industries, today announced the completion and first manufacturing run of a new production facility in Manchester, United Kingdom. The new M1 production facility will manufacture Radio Physics innovative MiRTLE threat detection systems for European, Middle East and Asian markets.

The Manchester facility is the first step in a planned expansion of Radio Physics’ global manufacturing and support capability. Radio Physics has experienced an increased demand for MiRTLE threat detection systems in the EMEA region, and the M1 facility will provide the regional presence to support our EMEA clients.

The commissioning of the M1 facility coincides with an aggressive staffing initiative. The recruitment drive will ensure that Radio Physics recruits the finest talent and creative minds to maintain its primary position in the stand-off detection market. 

“This physical expansion required significant planning and preparation in order to match the exacting quality standards set at Radio Physics’ U.S. facility,” explained Radio Physics Solutions. “Expanding the team by recruiting exceptional local talent to augment the dynamic synergies of the founding Radio Physics team has been a key factor in the success of the new Manchester facility.”

About MiRTLE – The World's First Portable Stand-off Detector
MiRTLE 10 is the world's only handheld system capable of detecting concealed threat items; suicide vests, martyrdom belts, handguns, knives, and 3D printed weapons at true stand-off distances. MiRTLE enables law enforcement, public safety and other security professionals to screen people unobtrusively using a safe, non-invasive scan of individuals without invading their personal privacy by revealing anatomical details.

MiRTLE uses millimeter wave technology to produce a reflected return signature of the targeted subject, highlighting items such as explosives, fragmentation weapons, knives and handguns. MiRTLE is ideal for a wide-range of applications including border and security checkpoints, public safety, event security, VIP security, maritime security and general aviation security.
