In 2017, Koniku, one of our portfolio companies, entered into a cooperation agreement with Airbus to solve the issue of airport and aircraft security. The konikore will detect biological hazards, and spot chemical and explosive threats within 10 seconds.
Airbus has made a significant step by partnering with the Mobile Police Department, the canine squad from Alabama Law Enforcement Agency, and FBI bomb technicians to lead a series of field tests evaluating the performance of Konikore’s volatile and organic compound detection.
Konikore exceeded expectations, showing a perfect score in sensitivity and specificity in detecting explosive threats.
