We specialise in the Aerospace, Automotive, Energy, and Defence industries. Our clients range from global organisations to small and medium sized businesses based throughout the UK and Europe. What makes us a first choice partner for our clients is our innovative approach, our commitment to developing the right solution and the personal service we provide.

  • Capabilities Our team of engineers have wide ranging experience of developing test, measurement, control and automation solutions. They have particular experience in Aerospace as well as in Automotive, Defence, Research and Manufacturing. We can provide either a software only solution or, in conjunction with a number of strategic partners, a turnkey solution. This includes specification of the system requirements, CAD designs, fabrication, software development and commissioning. All of our solutions are based on National Instruments’ hardware and software, LabVIEW. We are a National Instruments Alliance Partner and all of our engineers have current National Instruments certification up to Certified LabVIEW Architect. Diagnosis From the moment we meet we aim to give you more than you bargained for. We add value throughout our engagement and get to know your business and objectives fully before we start design. You can expect us to offer ideas and insights from our wealth of experience; to open up possibilities for you beyond what you thought was possible.


    Our talented design team are motivated by producing successful solutions that work in your world. We use rapid prototyping as part of our design process to show you the type of solution we have in mind before committing to the final design. This enables you to be involved at all stages of the process, saving time when changes are required.


    You are kept fully updated throughout the development stage as we release elements of the solution as they become available. Wherever possible we use graphical displays to show you the results. This can include mapping and a variety of forms of charts and diagrams. Our aim is to present you with information in an easy to understand way, enabling you and other members of your business to make the best decisions for your organisation.


    We understand that any investment in consulting or software development must deliver the results. That is why even before you engage us we will discuss the measures of success that you want to see in order to achieve your objectives. This is something that we focus on throughout development in order to ensure expectations are being met, and where possible, exceeded. If your resources are limited at any stage of the process no problem, we can provide a complete turnkey solution.
