Thermoteknix wins Queen's Award for Enterprise
Thermoteknix Systems is to be presented with a Queen's Award for Enterprise. The award, under the Innovation category, acknowledges the Miricle range of thermal imaging cameras.
Dr Richard Salisbury, founder and managing director of Thermoteknix Systems said: 'the award recognises our commitment to being one of the UK's technology leaders. We are transforming thermal imaging and infrared systems from being large, power consuming, instruments into highly compact, solid state, high-performance cameras.'
The Miricle range includes hermetically-sealed units for use in space exploration, hand-held imagers, surveillance systems, cameras for unmanned vehicles and the world's first shutterless thermal imaging camera.
Thermoteknix previously won The Queen's Award for Export Achievement in 1998, and is one of only a few companies to have ever won Queen's Awards in two different categories.
