About SEC Technologies
SEC Technologies is a Slovak technology company that was established in 2014. Since its inception, SEC has developed, produced and distributed a range of unique mobile detection devices for the identification and measurement of chemical and biological warfare agents and toxic industrial chemicals with high sensitivity and at distances of up to 6 km, without the need for physical contact or exposure. SEC's innovative detection devices are capable of improving national security around the world and have the potential to revolutionise the battle against international terrorism.
Building on over 30 years of previous institutional research and development, SEC currently manufactures the most advanced chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (“CBRN”) stand-off detectors on the market utilising two active LIDAR-based lasers (Light Detection and Ranging – a remote sensing method that uses light in the form of a pulsed laser). SEC’s stand-off product is the only working battle-field proven active mobile detector. In comparison to passive detectors, it has a significantly longer detection range of up to 20-times, significantly better sensitivity of up to 30-times, is able to detect biological agents and can provide concentration profiles and their measurements.
Unlike a typical venture capital investment, SEC has already developed a fully functional product with a straightforward manufacturing procedure. The Company has gained extensive experience in delivering CBRN products and services to the market, with its current customers including well-known defence industry players across Europe and the Middle East. The investment in SEC is consistent with one of IPM Growth’s key strategies of supporting unique Central & Eastern European technologies that have the potential for global impact. The IPM Growth investment is aimed at helping the company to establish itself globally by meeting its existing production demands, and growing its international market reach.
