RIA Success Story: The METEOR Project - A Leap in Cargo Screening

Updated: Sep 6, 2023

In this article you will learn more about the METEOR EU-funded consortium project which will have an impact on customs control and security. Find out how much funding it received, what type of project it is, and our role in the project.

Today, let's delve into a remarkable Futuro Perfecto Success Story – the METEOR project!

METEOR is an ambitious project working to transform how we secure logistics and shipments. Using advanced technology, the project aims to develop a portable air-sampling system that can accurately detect illegal items like drugs and explosives.

This innovation employs technology known as a multi-detector differential mobility analyzer (DMA), which categorizes molecular ions to identify harmful substances quickly and effectively. While its main goal is to detect illicit drugs, METEOR can also spot explosives and other prohibited substances.

The European Commission has recognized the potential of METEOR, granting a substantial 3 million euros this year to fuel this Research and Innovation Action project. With conventional X-ray screening proving inadequate, inspecting less than 5% of containers due to cost and time limitations, the demand for rapid, precise, and non-intrusive screening solutions is more urgent than ever.

At Futuro Perfecto, from its inception to the final stages, we have steadfastly supported METEOR's journey at every juncture and helped them to skillfully navigate the competitive funding process.
