BPG# 01/06 Title: Polarization-Holographic Protection System PI: Barbara Kilosanidze, George Kakauridze Organisation: Institute of Cybernetics Company: HOLORETECH Ltd The objective of this project is the development of industrial technology of production of polarization-holographic system for protection of documents, valuable papers and industrial products on the basis of laboratory samples possessed by the Science Team During the performance of the project the industrial technology of reception of polarization-holographic protective elements working as transmission elements is created, and also a pre-production model of the identifying device for real time definition of authenticity of protective elements is developed and obtained. The developed system enables essentially to increase a level of protection of important documents, securities and industrial products and also to reduce the prime cost cost of protective elements and the identifying device. The system is a functional prototype. However this system is transmission type system that is inconvenient in some cases. More universal would be a system of reflective type which we will develop in case of reception of any financing. In our opinion such system will be more required in the local and global market including government organizations, banks and industrial enterprises. Now PHSPD is patented and in case of reception of the patent we intend to license our technology to manufacturers of holographic protection systems. In the process of the preparation of materials for patenting we have thoroughly studied a situation on the market of holographic protective systems. Besides during participation at the International Forum HOLOEXPO-2006 (Russia, Moscow, 2006) a better understanding of the needs of the market of protective technologies has been reached. The product was presented at SPIE international exhibition in Strasbourg (France).
