World Exposure for Scientific Discovery and Innovation via ATA Carnets

ATA Carnets serve the scientific community and innovators in multiple disciplines and applications. Businesses, organizations, inventors, and educational institutions alike take full advantage of the benefits ATA Carnets provide.  They are utilized for the exchange of new ideas & technology, research, conducting experiments, as well as demonstrations of pioneering machinery, joint projects, and more.  Boomerang’s customers reflect a wide variety in the Sciences, their innovations, and discoveries:

Educational institutions frequently use ATA Carnets to share new technology and ideas, demonstrate medical advancements, conduct field research and experiments, and participate in robotics competitions where innovation is key.

Pharmaceutical companies use ATA Carnets as part of the requirements for approval.  ATA Carnets were recently used for a groundbreaking Alzheimer’s drug that needed verified documentation to prove that the drug could withstand being exported for a set amount of time and remain viable and intact upon re-importation.

Scientific Device/Machine/Vehicle companies use ATA Carnets for a number of reasons. They include, for example, measuring toxins in our oceans, tracking changes in weather patterns, monitoring telecommunications instruments in aerospace, utilizing submersible vehicles to survey the ocean floor, and for demonstrating new medical devices that advance imaging, operations, and procedures.

Environmental sustainability enterprises that use ATA Carnets include a company whose revolutionary and sustainable way to clean the hulls of ships has already eliminated millions of tons of CO2 from our environment and collected 100,000 kg of biofouling and alien invasive species from the ocean.

Drone Companies use ATA Carnets to introduce their advanced technology into international markets.  A California-based company used ATA Carnets to “demo” and test their highly innovative and unique drone delivery platform in Switzerland for transporting samples between hospitals, labs, and universities. They have since expanded to Japan, Abu Dhabi, and the EU.
