Estonia-based deep tech company GScan has raised €1.4 million to develop atmospheric ray 3D scanners for security and cargo scanning. The new funding will enable the deep tech company to complete its R&D and deliver its first industry prototypes by autumn 2022. The investment was led by AS Amalfi, Hansa Grupp OÜ and Sillever OÜ.
The company is now valued at over €18 million after the investment round.
As public safety becomes a global priority, the deep tech startup aims to bring a new type of 3D scanner and tomograph to the market that uses only natural particle flux to scan.
According to the company, what distinguishes GScan equipment from existing X-ray equipment is the complete automation and high material recognition capability. GScan’s first product is a security and customs scanner with a capacity of two cubic metres.
Andi Hektor, co-founder of GScan said: “The increased concerns on safety and smuggling have led us to focus on creating a safer future. Our scanners offer a harmless and automated solution against the smuggling of weapons, explosives, illegal goods and people. Our technology can be used to see through packages, vehicles and containers. Worrying about the after-war zones in Ukraine, earthquakes or just aging ferroconcrete, we can inspect buildings and bridges to make sure their structure is safe and durable.”
