nDetect offers a broad range of skills in imaging solutions. We have particular expertise in developing visible light and X-ray imaging systems used in aviation security and industrial inspection.

nDetect is a wholly independent imaging consultancy. We are not tied to any solutions or vendor and can therefore offer the optimum solution for your application.

X-ray Imaging

nDetect has over 25 years experience designing and developing X-ray systems. We have created solutions from concept through to cost-effective commercial systems for security and industrial applications.

X-ray poses particular challenges for health and safety however it has profound advantage over visible light systems: inspecting within an item after final assembly, and in most cases after being sealed for quality, can be the only mechanism to ensure the 100% integrity of a component as it leaves the factory. nDetect can help with planning the integration of X-ray inspection within the production line or any public place, ensuring compliance with IRR’99 regulations and optimising solutions to match the requirements of the application.

We have particular experience in extrapolating difficult concepts and techniques and turning these into commercial products. Several members of the nDetect team have been directly involved in establishing an AIM-listed spin-out company from academic research, transfering IP and know-how into commercial and industrial products.

We believe X-ray represents the optimum solution for industrial inspection and remains the only viable technology for security applications. We can offer unique product evaluation facilities to establish if X-ray can inspect your product so contact us to see how X-ray can help you manufacture a better product.

Visible light imaging

nDetect have developed visible light imaging systems for a variety of industrial applications. We have experience with both straight-forward camera systems requiring a PC to capture, process and action images, to smart cameras which have processing capability at the point of capture. Both approaches have advantages and we can help you decide which is most applicable for your application.

We have produced 3D imaging systems for both image capture and display purposes and have considerable experience in optimising parameters for such systems.

nDetect are an independent imaging solutions consultancy and can provide you with the advice on where imaging systems should be used and how best to incorporate them within manufacturing process. Contact us today for an independent view on your application.

Software development

nDetect has experience in developing a wide range of software solutions from threat injection in baggage screening systems to bespoke algorithm development in product inspection. nDetect understand the selection of detectors and ancillary equipment is only part of the solution. These devices have to be connected together to form a complete, robust and efficient acquisition, and analysis network, to effectively inspect your product or service. We have extensive knowledge and experience to develop the necessary software to achieve this. Our software will communicate with hardware, analyse data and display results locally or feed this to your back-end servers for further analysis.

nDetect supply software as part of our complete imaging solutions or work with customer-supplied equipment to develop bespoke solutions.

Image processing software

nDetect have developed a suite of software algorithms optimised for both visible and X-ray imaging. We have developed cost effective solutions using our broad experience of developing imaging systems and applications. Our algorithms and implementation do not require any 3rd party licence and will run on most OS platforms, including embedded smart cameras.
