From 1998 to 2006, he was involved with designing anti-counterfeiting devices for bank notes. In 2005, one of his inventions was commercialized as a spin-off company known as Datatrace DNA Pty Ltd, and in 2006, Dr. Swiegers joined the firm as Vice President, Strategic Research. Several of Dr. Swiegers's inventions are currently used by national governments and major companies around the world.
