About us

Imaging expertise

We are a fast-growing SME based in London. Our team are experts in imaging, sensing, motion control and sytems design, and we work across many industry sectors to develop imaging systems. In particular, in Medical Devices, BioTech and Life Sciences, as well as other sectors where the quality of the image is all important. We help businesses exploit the benefits of using photonics to not only illuminate, but to measure, sense, image, identify and diagnose.

Our multi-disciplinary team can creatively problem-solve, communicate, and work with you to add photonics-based tools to your options when looking for solutions to difficult problems.

CONTACT US - Interested in optoelectronics, visible / IR camera systems, laser / oscillator technology, embedded real-time processing, X-ray systems ? We're happy to discuss any potential project - large or small - or to talk with you about technical or design-led workshops. Call on +44 (0)7747 612047 to speak to Phil or Pauline, or email us at
