Further engagement with SKA
In our December update we mentioned that one of our principal engineers, Ross, is working with a global team of scientists and engineers on an intergovernmental radio telescope project, Square Kilometre Array Observatory (SKAO):
‘This is an amazing opportunity and a privilege to be working alongside incredibly talented professionals, including scientists, astronomers and engineers all with the desire to realise the world's largest radio telescope.’
We are pleased to confirm we have now extended the engagement with additional engineers working on FPGA developments as part of the Monitoring Calibration Control System (MCCS) system on the SKA telescope project.

Our range of clients
As our work tends to focus on ‘technologies’ rather than ‘markets’, it’s normal for our portfolio of projects to cover a range of industries. For example, we’re currently supporting clients in:
- aerospace; agriculture; broadcast and Pro-AV; consumer electronics; medical; oil and gas industries; rail; semiconductors; space and satellite.
Last month we explained how we saved one of our existing clients money. We’re happy to report a similar scenario with another client.
The client had approached us with a particular challenge and given our expertise in FPGA design, they were expecting an FPGA solution. However, after an initial free discussion (which we offer all new clients), we arranged to spend some time assessing the different technical solutions. The end result was an investigation to assess options and report on which would be most cost effective as well as meet their requirements. In the end, we proposed a software solution which enabled the client to get their product to market much faster and in a less costly manner.
We’d like to extend a warm welcome to our latest recruit, Steve Whale, Product Development Manager. Steve has a background in product development and will be working closely with our Engineering Director and our engineers. Steve’s focus will be on facilitating innovation and supporting our clients turn their ideas into reality.
We currently have both senior and junior engineering positions as well as a number of internships available. We recognise that for students considering their options or looking to enter the world of work, they may have some concerns. To help address these concerns, we held an interactive webinar for the Electronics and Computer Science students as part of the University of Southampton virtual Careers Fortnight.
The webinar was a great success with our Business Development Director, Jon Older and Graduate Electronics Engineer, Norbert Kremeris answering questions and giving tips and advice.
With our expertise focused on technology rather than markets, our clients can take advantage of the best technical approaches and solutions to their challenges. Clients use their market knowledge to steer the direction of the engagement, ensuring the best solution for their needs.
If you need help with a product development idea, wish to understand how technology can give you competitive advantage or are looking for experts or additional resource to supplement your team, please get in touch. We may be able to save you time and money.
