Non-Invasive Measurement Technology specialises
in real-time field/site measurements using all parts of the
electromagnetic spectrum (RF to X-ray), sonic spectrum (sonar to
ultrasound) and specialised surface chemistry based sensors.
Our engineers, physicists, chemists,
chemometricians and software specialists have a proud publishing and
patent record and proven ability to take our research from
fundamental concepts through to pre-production prototypes.
Under AgResearch we have our expanded our focus
from just red meat to include other meats, fish, dairy, live
animals, pasture and soil – in fact any aspect of New Zealand's
pastoral agriculture is within our scope and ability.
The evolution of the Measurement Technology
Team began with the Measurement and Electrical Technology (MET) Team
in MIRINZ. Within AgResearch MET was initially merged with the
Process and Preservation Team to form the Measurement Technology
Team, and later merged into Dairy Science.
