Trinity Research Labs, jointly with the Frequency Standards and Quantum Metrology Group of the University Of Western Australia, have patented a new Intrinsic Gravity Gradiometer. The Gradiometer is the next step in developing ultra-sensitive pocket-sized room temperature operating Gravity Gradiometers that are capable of being deployed in drilled wells and unmanned moving platforms, including airborne, marine and submersibles. Currently, the project "TAIPAN" ( the nickname of the Gravity Gradiometer under development ) is underway aimed at the manufacturing of a fully operational prototype Gravity Gradiometer later in 2017. The project is fully funded by one of the UWA industry partners.

Trinity Research Labs, jointly with the QEII Medical Research Centre; the UWA Medical Physics Group; the UWA School of Electrical, Electronic and Computer Engineering; and the UWA School of Surgery, have won a National Breast Cancer Foundation Grant (two years funding). The project commences in January 2017 and is aimed at the development of a low-risk, low-cost, non-invasive high-sensitivity method of early breast cancer detection based on electromagnetic gradiometry. The technology has been developed by the Trinity Research Labs as a new technique for mineral exploration and defence related applications. Later, it has been realised that the technique has a potential for the detection of cancerous cells which manifest themselves as anomalously conductive breast tissue.
