We develop and measure the performance of cutting-edge instrumentation, materials and technologies

Enabling the aerospace industry to save millions of pounds in manufacturing costs and meet compliance requirements

Each year billions of people fly for business or pleasure, and there is pressure to improve the efficiency of production lines, while meeting increasingly stringent regulations. Plane manufacturers must balance the promise of new technologies with safety and performance considerations in a conventionally conservative marketplace.

We work with government agencies and commercial organisations throughout the supply chain, from primary manufacturers to SMEs. We provide measurement services, training and research capabilities.
