1Millikelvin, a company commercialising an imaging system for visualising loads under stress, was named winner of both the National Innovation Award and SME Innovation Award on Tuesday at the Avalon 2023 Australian International Airshow.

According to event organiser AMDA, winning both categories at the Avalon Innovation Awards — held on the first day of the airshow — was a first.

1Millikelvin’s technology, named MiTE – Microbolometer Thermoelastic Evaluation — was developed with Department of Defence scientists, and uses infrared cameras to detect tiny changes in temperature in a structure under load, processing this to create highly-accurate stress maps.

It was originally developed to monitor aerostructures, and is believed to have wide applicability in domains from civil infrastructure to roller coasters.

1Millikelvin was awarded an Advanced Manufacturing Growth Centre grant in 2021.
