Based in Shanklin, the small but rapidly-growing business has set itself apart in the market due to its unique approaches to solving complex science and engineering obstacles.

Among its success stories, it has developed bespoke, cutting-edge AI technology to detect, identify and grade radioactive material which has been used in a number of international markets, including the site of one of the most significant environmental catastrophes - the accident at the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant.

The judges, including Dr Chris Worrall from category sponsor the University of Portsmouth, said that it was a really interesting, innovative international business and they were surprised by its work.

Dr Worrall said: ‘Its endeavours help others raise their game. It is a local business making an international impact.’
