Case study – Trang Imagineering innovation


Helping to save the lives of soldiers


In July 2017 Trang Imagineering secured a contract from the Australian Defense Force, to research a technology that would help save soldier’s lives in the field. Trang’s Founder Dave Finlay confirmed that the research would center on a 3D scanner which could detect lethal threats, such as improvised explosive devices (IEDs). The technology would mean that even if personnel used the same road many times, the scanners could still pinpoint buried IEDs.

This is a natural fit for Trang Imagineering, as the technology is already used in one of our key partner industries – mining – to detect potential landslides. The scanner takes photos continually, overlaying them on one another to identify gradual changes. ‘A landslide doesn’t happen instantaneously,’ explained Mr Finlay, ‘it occurs over weeks. A lot of mining contractors use 3D scanners to detect potential landslides. It occurred to us that this could be adapted for this new defense force application.’

‘This project is only the start. It’ll benchmark existing technology and could lead to a product being manufactured. Alternatively it can be put on hold for future technological development and deployment.’ This was Trang Imagineering’s first contract with the ADF. David Finlay said the idea was one of nine submitted, before it was selected for further research.
