Projects

4-year collaboration with Animal Dynamics Ltd:

  • Skeeter: a small-scale drone with flapping wing propulsion designed as a short-range surveillance platform for situational awareness, with the ability to operate in high wind conditions and fly longer distances on lower power than existing small UAS.
  • Malolo: a flapping propulsion water-based vehicle that uses a tuned flapping foil for propulsion for efficiency improvements over traditional propeller designs.

10-year collaboration with Perbury Engineering Ltd, modelling, manufacturing prototypes and developing control systems for infinitely variable transmissions (Perbury IVT/CVT).

5-year collaboration with Oxford Maritime Research Ltd, modelling and constructing towed diver operated underwater metal detectors.

3-year collaboration with Cookson Technology Centre, Begbroke, (Fry's Metals Inc.) Cookson Group PLC, developed a process for the formation of anisotropic electroconductive sheet materials for mechanically joining electrically connecting electronic circuit components.

5-year association with Sharp Laboratories of Europe Ltd, manufacturing laboratory equipment.
