MiRTLE detectors enable rapid, real-time concealed threat detection at stand-off ranges using ultra wide band millimeter wave radio to screen people. Threat detection is autonomously rendered in real time with the user not required to interpret imagery. Threats ranging from Person-Borne Improvised Explosive Devices (PBIEDs) to handguns and non-metallic concealed objects can be detected and discriminated from ubiquitous pocket clutter like mobile phones, keys and wallets.

MiRTLE is available in two versions: tripod mounted MiRTLE 30 for longer standoff distances and MiRTLE subsystems for integration in other plaforms. MiRTLE provides a safe, non-invasive way to scan individuals without invading their personal privacy, such as revealing anatomical details.

Applications range from covert screening for concealed handguns at schools, nightclubs, sporting events or on the streets, through to the detection of suicide bombers equipped with a PBIED.


MiRTLE 30 is a larger, longer range variant of MiRTLE 10. Portable but typically tripod mounted, MiRTLE is manually aimed at target subjects to reliably detect threats at ranges of up to 30 meters. Like MiRTLE 10, the system is entirely autonomous with the operator alerted to a threat or non-threat condition through an unambiguous color coded cursor and/or audible signal. Detection is rendered in real time, with typical detection time of ~ 1 second.
