Kromek wins $990k security contract with US defence tech leader
Durham-based Kromek has been awarded a $990k contract by a US leader in aerospace and defence technologies to upgrade its advanced security screening detectors.
The radiation detection technology company will develop and provide the first annual supply of the upgraded detectors, in a contract stemming 12 months.

Dr Arnab Basu, Chief Executive Officer of Kromek, said: “We are delighted to receive this new security screening contract from an existing customer that is a major aerospace and defence company.
“This contract provides further validation of the strength of our advanced radiation detection solutions and adds to the visibility of revenues and strengthens our confidence in the continuing growth of the business.”
