QinetiQ
: 12 February, 2007  (Company News)
QinetiQ's Tarsier runway debris detection system was awarded the top honour for technology transfer from defence to civil markets at this year's Defence Technology Exchange Awards. The radar system, which detects Foreign Object Debris, is in use at Vancouver International Airport and has been ordered by Dubai.
Tarsier was one of three QinetiQ technologies to pick up awards at the glittering ceremony held at the Science Museum, London, UK on 30 November.

Borderwatch, a 24/7 scanner that has already detected hundreds of stowaways hiding in trucks at the Channel tunnel, picked up the award for homeland security innovation.

ZBD Displays Ltd, a QinetiQ venture, won the award for innovation in the supply chain for their zero-power point of purchase displays that are in use by a number of leading UK retailers.

In addition to their top award, Tarsier also scooped the crown for sensor technology innovation.
