News story: New solution for future SONAR advantage

The Technology Partnership (TTP) has developed an alternative future sensing solution for SONAR applications, which uses acoustically induced electrical impedance changes in the sea water surrounding a vessel to detect sounds. The Measurement of Electrical Impedance for Detection of Acoustic Signals (MIDAS) system uses simple, low-power, compact sensors resulting in low through-life costs.

TTP has also undertaken a range of projects for CDE within the last 2 years. These have included prototype demonstrations of a short range, secure magnetic wireless communication system and a ‘smart material’ that can passively log temperature of stores and equipment over extended periods.

In business for over 25 years, Cambridgeshire-based TTP employs over 300 scientists, engineers and business innovators. Since its foundation, the engineers and scientists at TTP have played a role in a broad spectrum of sectors including medical and pharmaceutical, wireless communications, micro-devices and sensing systems.

Dr Sam Hyde, Managing Director, TTP says:

CDE seeks novel technologies that solve high-impact, complex development challenges. This fits perfectly with TTP and our capability in rapidly creating and applying new technology to achieve game-changing performance. CDE has been a key bridge, enabling a number of TTP innovations to enter the defence market.
