    13. 13. LicensesExamples
    14. 14. Biomedical, Clinical &Pharmaceutical BBI Detection
    15. 15. Lateral Flow DeviceRequirement: Solution:Sample & detect hazardous Integrated hand held devicesubstances at the same time to • Rapid sampling of 8 targetssupport front line personnel simultaneously • Can test powder, liquid or surfaces directly • Can be used wearing protective clothing •Applications include: surface testing for food allergens or illegal drugs, or defence uses in bio-threat and explosives detection. Licensed to Slide 15
    16. 16. Electronics &Communications Thales
    17. 17. Compact Ultra Wideband (UWB)AntennaProblem: Solution:Modern radio communications • Can cover the UWB frequency spectrumrequire multiple and cumbersome of 20MHz – 6.0GHz.limited bandwidth antennas • Omni-directional radiation pattern, over the entire impedance match bandwidth • Offers a solution to a wide range of applications: • Suitable for GPS, GSM, WLA, CNR, GNSS, DF, EW, JTRS and MIMO applications. • Wi-Fi; Wi-Max; Bluetooth; High Definition TV and DVD Video; 3G; Digital Radio and others including Wi-PlaDs incorporated in UWB chip-sets. • Military and commercial Tx/Rx UWB antennas • Direction finding Antennas Side 17
    18. 18. Digital Radar Electronic SupportMeasuresRequirement: Solution:• Maintaining the advantage Full digital radarin awareness capability •Greater accuracy and improved sensitivity •Increased quality of information •Improved through life costs •Potential to develop in areas beyond Naval Licensed to Slide 18
    19. 19. Defence &Security Ceramic Armour Super Bainite Steel
    20. 20. Ceramic ArmourRequirement: Solution:• Need lighter weight armour Ceramic armour panel element• Multi-round, co-incident hits –limited protection •Interlocking lugs dissipate energy to provide improved ballistics protection •Affords same protection for less weight or increased protection for same weight Licence agreed in 2006 with an SME defence company with a royalty payable on non-MoD sales Slide 20
    21. 21. Super Bainite SteelRequirement: Solution:A UK onshore production capabilityfor armour steel High Hardness Armoured Steel Development of new secondary hardening process • Lower weight • Easier machining/shaping than conventional armoured steel • Production Assessment conducted with Tata (260 Tonnes) • Processing Licensees now being sought Slide 21
    22. 22. Behind Armour Blunt Trauma Test RigRequirement: Solution:Body Armour Development ‘Benchmark’ test rig for body armour development • Measurement of rate of change not just depression • Non-contact measurement system avoids potential damage to test equipment • Potential to provide benchmark measurement system for testing various systems Licensed to Slide 22
