Bubble Technology Industries had the opportunity to demonstrate some of its latest radiation detection equipment to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau during the Nuclear Security Summit held in Washington, D.C. on March 31st and April 1st, 2016. Trudeau met with Lianne Ing, Vice President, and Dr. Martin Smith, Senior Scientist, amongst a throng of media at the Government of Canada exhibit at the summit. Ms. Ing and Dr. Smith demonstrated BTI’s new FlexSpec Backpack product, a state-of-the-art, portable radiation detection system that detects and identifies radioactive materials and instantly categorizes them as threats or other types of radioactive materials. Immediately after meeting with BTI, Trudeau turned to a crowd of reporters and announced that Canada will be investing an additional $42 million over two years to improve global nuclear security.
BTI was invited by the Canadian Nuclear Association to demonstrate its advanced radiation detection technologies at the Government of Canada exhibit at the Nuclear Security Summit in Washington,D.C. from March 31st to April 1st, 2016. During this summit, Lianne Ing, Vice President of BTI, and Dr. Martin Smith, Senior Scientist, had the opportunity to demonstrate the latest addition to the FlexSpec product line, the FlexSpec Backpack to Mr. Yukiya Amano, the Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). The IAEA is an intergovernmental organization based in Vienna that promotes the peaceful use of nuclear technologies.
Lianne Ing, Vice President of BTI, was invited to deliver the opening remarks to over 300 students at the Destination Imagination Eastern Ontario Regional Tournament on March 5, 2016. Destination Imagination is a non-profit, volunteer-led organization that helps students of all ages to improve their creative problem-solving skills. The program focuses on the fields of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), fine arts and service learning, with an emphasis on teamwork. Ms. Ing spoke with the students about the innovative work performed at Bubble Technology Industries and the opportunities for positive impacts through science and engineering in the world.
