VTT spin-off Asqella sells new passive THz imaging systems capable of remote detection of items concealed about the body. The company has received close to a million euros in funding from an angel syndicate, VTT and the Finnish Funding Agency for Technology and Innovation (Tekes). The company sees major market potential in applications such as high-throughput screening for loss prevention, event security, and security in public places. The technology will become available to customers during 2014.
