University KTP with Industrial Tomography Systems (ITS) Awarded ‘Outstanding’

The University of Bath KTP with Industrial Tomography Systems plc (ITS), a world leader in process tomography, has been awarded ‘Outstanding’ by Innovate UK.

The partnership builds on a previous KTP with ITS which focused on generic inverse algorithms, whereby the University transferred several image reconstruction algorithms into ITS’s software. This KTP will extend the scope further to linear configurations, a huge potential for industrial markets.

The KTP, led by Dr Manuch Soleimani from the University’s Engineering Tomography Laboratory (ETL), will help provide the company with cutting edge imaging software.

Changhua Qiu, Principal Systems Engineer of ITS, says: “It was an honour working with the University of Bath. The aim of this project was to create a software package which can fulfil the technology gap from ITS’s existing algorithms and cover the market needs of industrial processes. As there is a need for new algorithms for better image accuracy, many Industrial process applications will benefit from the outcome of this KTP project - the commercial ‘Reconstruction Tool-Suite software’ - An Excellent result from the Project!”.

Ken Primrose, CEO of ITS, says: “ITS was pleased to have engaged with the University of Bath in this project and found the University’s in-depth expertise and access to high calibre people very helpful. We are looking forward to continuing this relationship beyond the KTP to ensure that ITS maintains its leading position in the field of electrical tomography”.

Dr Solemani says: “I am delighted to see that the significant impact of this project has been confirmed by independent project assessors. This project directly led to a number of novel commercial products, giving ITS a leading edge against its international competitors. It is very rewarding to see the cutting edge scientific research in our lab find such a fantastic impact to industry, helping a high tech UK SME”.
