VFB 2013 - Grants and Vouchers - An SMEs experience of Innovation Vouchers

  1. 1. Peter Stirling Stirling Dynamics Innovation Vouchers
  2. 2. Stirling Business Units Mechatronic Systems Aircraft Systems Aerospace Engineering Active Control Systems G Seats ElectroMechanical Test Rigs Test Services Landing Gear Fuel Systems Actuator Design Control Systems Dynamic Simulation Loads Aerodynamics Weight Performance Stability, Control Handling Qualities Structures & Materials Marine and Industrial Systems Submarine Autopilots Hover Systems FASC Systems Engineering Trials Support
  3. 3. Product Development • Stirling focus on Energy Market - Energy from Waste - Marine Renewables - Waste Water • Development of condition monitoring system for waste infrastructure - Industrial Partner - Focus on mechanical plant, with wider operations to be focussed on later - Suitable for our other business areas - Aero/Oil & Gas
  4. 4. AWEAR CM System
  5. 5. Innovation Vouchers • The system is a good piece of engineering • We also want it to be a good piece of design • Engaged an external supplier (TSB IV) • Re-skin the GUI • Help develop the brand/identity • ‘Tell the story’ • Make it clear that this is a Stirling system • Discussion with a University (SWIV) • Look at how humans gather information about their visual environment
  6. 6. Summary • Innovation Vouchers are an excellent way of funding engagement with a supplier you wouldn’t normally engage with • Internally funded project, budget is tight, yet design support may well prove the difference • Likely to lead into follow-on work for supplier (app development) • Supplier can also potentially support in other areas of our business • Relatively simple application process - Good support available from SCB
  7. 7. Thank you for listening Questions?
