We’re a fairly small (but rapidly growing) team of sensor and imaging specialists with backgrounds in engineering, physics and computing.

We relish the challenge of a client with a problem that has no obvious solution – and we specialise in exploring the options and finding a practical answer, whatever the sector and however challenging the environment.

Most members of the team are qualified to PhD level and we value not only their research abilities, but also their practical engineering and project management skills.

It’s this strong combination that enables us to take our research out of the laboratory and into business.
