Argus X-ray Camera wins international design award

Micro-X has won an internationally-renowned iF Design Award for the Argus X-ray Camera.

The IF design award was introduced in 1954 and is one of the world’s most celebrated and valued design competitions.

Argus won over the 133-member jury, made up of independent experts from all over the world, for its high impact in transforming stand-off imaging capability for bomb search and detection. The award was granted for the discipline ‘Product’ in the category ‘Industry/Tools’.

The competition was intense: almost 11,000 entries were submitted from 56 countries in hope of receiving the seal of quality.

Argus gives operators x-ray vision where they need it most. The unit provides the unique flexibility of both high-definition backscatter x-ray and traditional transmission x-ray to diagnose conventional and improvised threats. Its world-first wide-area scattered projection technology enables the rapid assessment of threats, using intuitive and easy to navigate software. This technology means that Argus can capture a backscatter image while stationary, with no need for operators to place an imaging panel behind the object, removing the deadly risk of ‘time over target’.

Chief Executive Officer Peter Rowland said:

“We are honoured to receive the iF Design Award for the Argus X-ray Camera.  Micro-X designs disruptive products that make lives better, and we pay particular attention to the needs of users of our technology. This award is recognition of this work and validates our dedication to creating next generation x-ray products.”
