The company was founded in 1992 by the engineers of Belarusian National Technical University. We started with development of expert devices for authenticity control of banknotes. In a few years we began manufacturing equipment for scientific expertise of security features in passports and securities.
“In the middle of the 1990s, the world wasn’t ready to accept Belarus as a manufacturer of high-tech products. Many people were surprised to learn about our origin, and we kept emphasizing that we are not from Russia. We explained where and what Belarus is. And we always felt so proud and patriotic”.
Galina Groudko, Assistant to Director
Since a number of high-tech revolutionary products were invented in 1995, the company began to assert itself on the international market. Our unique products include mobile laboratories for examination of documents and securities, full-page desktop and mobile passport readers, a portable complex for investigation of vehicle identification numbers using the method of magneto-optical visualization, etc.
“Long ago, in the 1990s, there was already the necessity to control document authenticity at borders, customs and in banks. The specification of the control equipment had to be high, so it was rather expensive and our customers just couldn’t afford it. We started developing this kind of equipment, and a small device was born - Spectral luminescent magnifier 4177. It could do everything concerning authenticity control. It was a revolutionary breakthrough!”
