The aim of the visit was to brief UKTI DSO desk officers on the company capabilities and export plans prior to Security and Policing 2012, to further develop the relationship between UKTI DSO and a very well regarded and innovative SME, to inform the wider UKTI of their capabilities, and to brief other sector teams.

Richard Paniguian Head UKTI DSO said:
“I am delighted that Excelerate Technology was able to bring this innovative technology to brief UKTI staff on an important capability that is suitable for emergency services and crisis management situations. We are always keen to support companies wishing to export and I and my teams will do all we can to help promote this technology in overseas markets”
