French expertise in evidence at Counter Terror Expo 2012

The French Trade Commission UBIFRANCE in the UK will unveil the French Pavilion at Counter Terror Expo, to be held from 25 to 26 April 2012, in Central London (UK). Counter Terror Expo is the largest international event focusing on counter-terrorism and specialist security. The French Pavilion will showcase dynamic companies specialising in state security and counter-terrorism technology.

The French Pavilion at Counter Terror Expo, at the Olympia exhibition centre, in London, will offer a unique environment in which professionals, manufacturers and distributors of counter-terrorism products and technologies will be able to discover cutting-edge solutions in the sector and find potential business partners. The trade show is taking place from 25 to 26 April of this year.

The French companies will showcase such products and solutions as state-security technologies, surveillance solutions, military and police equipment, maintenance equipment, chemiluminescent products, advanced X-ray spectrometric detectors, decontamination solutions, demining systems, and CBRN detection technology.

Participating French companies are listed below; a catalogue with further details on each of the exhibitors is available upon request.


CEFA is an innovative company recognised by the French Ministry of Defence for the manufacture of military vehicles and specialist crossing equipment (for crossing rivers, for instance). The company will be presenting SECURICORB, its innovative bomb-proof rubbish bin designed to withstand explosions of up to 500g of plastic explosive, and used for the protection of people, property and urban sites.

Cyalume® Technologies SAS

Cyalume® Technologies SAS is a world leader in chemiluminescent products and non-pyrotechnic explosion simulators. For 40 years, military forces around the world have extensively used ChemLight® lightsticks, which are simple-to-use products for marking, signalling and illuminating. Cyalume® lightsticks also increase safety on industrial sites when used as maintenance and evacuation lights, or as personal protective equipment (PPE).


Through its high degree of know-how, state-security specialist Cofrexport anticipates risks and offers innovative solutions to enable state-security services to combat criminal organisations effectively. Cofrexport offers highly advanced technical-surveillance measures, thanks to the company's expertise in the latest listening-in, surveillance and interception technologies.

Co-decision Technology

Co-Mining® is Co-decision Technology's solution that mimics human behaviour when handling complex investigations, embedding the professional know-how of intelligence services. Users can launch cyber trackers, which detect and link 'micro-risks' from structured and unstructured data (such as social media, blogs and databases), travel between users to take into consideration multiple interpretations, and transform them into decisions for action.


Deveryware is a leading specialist in the provision of smart location-based solutions to fight crime. A 10-year experience in chronolocation and a close collaboration with tens of thousands of law-enforcement officials have allowed the company to conceive powerful web-based solutions that will be presented at the trade show.

ECT Industries

ECT Industries, a subsidiary of the NSE Group, is a European manufacturer of electronic systems for the aviation, naval, and transport industries. ECT Industries specialises in geolocalisation technologies and data transmission.

GK Professional

Since 1984, GK Professional has created, manufactured and distributed law-enforcement, military and security equipment. With an emphasis on quality, the company has gained an excellent, global reputation within national and international institutions.


Milipol is the worldwide exhibition for internal-security professionals. Constantly developing, Milipol is the major technological showcase for products and services in the public- and industrial-security sector. The next Milipol trade shows will be held in Qatar (in the Middle East) from 8 to 10 October 2012, and in Paris (in France) in November 2013.

MultiX SA

A spin-off of Thales Electron Devices, MultiX is a technology start-up that designs, produces and sells advanced X-ray spectrometric detectors. These detectors are used for the identification of materials generally, and, more particularly, for the detection of explosives in luggage and packages. MultiX also provides solutions for food inspection and non-destructive testing (NDT) in industry.


Present in over 40 countries, Proengin is the only company to have developed detection solutions for biological- and chemical-warfare agents that use flame-spectrometry technology. Proengin uses this technology to manufacture advanced chemical and biological detectors such as handheld chemical detector AP4C and biological detector MAB.


At Counter Terror Expo, Verney-Carron will present its Flash-Ball — a revolutionary defence weapon which generates the stopping power of a .38 Special (the rimmed cartridge designed by Smith & Wesson). Used in France by several specialist police units, the Flash-Ball has the major advantage of causing the target to suffer the equivalent of a technical knock-out (without penetrating a normally dressed person's body).

Im Focus: Etching Microstructures with Lasers

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.

This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Im Focus: Light-driven atomic rotations excite magnetic waves

Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion

Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
