With proven experience designing products to meet standards such as ATEX and API17S, we deliver solutions that meet commercial and performance requirements in demanding operating environments.
Sensors & instrumentation
The breadth and depth of our expertise in deploying optical, electronic, magnetic and acoustic measurement techniques means we always identify the best approach for the challenge at hand.
Drawing on our successes in measurement, location and control technologies in other sectors, we often uncover opportunities to transfer key innovations and insights into oil and gas applications.
We operate one of the world's largest independent wireless development teams, with more than 200 experts covering every specialism, from short-range wireless connectivity to global satellite communication.
We’re adept at developing technology to reliably communicate critical data in extremely challenging environments, drawing upon our expertise in conventional and unconventional electromagnetic and radio frequency techniques.
Increasingly found at the leading edge of technology in just about every field, data science has a powerful role to play in improving sensor performance.
Our mathematicians and data scientists extract valuable information from the noise. By skilfully managing and interpreting the vast quantity of data generated by the latest generation of sensors, we achieve optimal speed, accuracy and resolution, and find new ways to combine and cross-reference data from multiple sources to provide actionable information.
How we work
From concept generation through to delivery of qualified hardware suitable for deployment topside, subsea and downhole, we combine a scientific, analytical approach with commercial awareness.
By understanding each client’s technical and commercial objectives, combined with our own deep scientific knowledge, we identify and develop technology that provides a genuine competitive advantage and commercial benefit.
Independent and technology agnostic, we don’t supply products directly to the oil and gas industry, instead allowing our clients to own the intellectual property we develop for them.
Tech, tools & facilities
Our laboratories provide high accuracy measurement and analysis for the wide range of projects we undertake. Specialist equipment includes a gas chromatography mass spectrometer (GCMS), a Matersizer particle size analyser, a Spraytec laser diffraction droplet size analyser, high-speed and thermal imaging cameras and rapid-development custom image analysis software.
We’re experts in applying computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation tools, including CFX and Fluent, to conduct finite element analysis (FEA).
Our suite optics labs enable us to build complex and high-precision optical layouts, typically for testing prototype designs and novel techniques prior to deployment. Featuring six high-spec optical benches with configurable interlocked controlled areas for high-power (class 4) laser work and specialist facilities for interferometry, spectroscopy, low-noise fluorescence imaging and photon counting. This space can be split into separate laser-controlled areas, allowing multiple experiments to run simultaneously, giving our optical engineers the capability to develop creative solutions without instrumentation restrictions.
Our electronic and mechanical prototyping workshops allow us to produce technically credible prototypes that bring ideas to life and offer a powerful demonstration of their value. All while maintaining extremely high standards of quality that conform to ISO 9001, ISO 13485 and ISO 14001 regulations. Using the latest CNC and milling machines, lathes, welding gear and wire harness and cable assembly tools, we are able to produce parts very quickly and assemble full-scale working prototypes for testing and consumer trials.
