Thursday 16 Feb 2017NEST Seminar: A new concept for covert optical transmission of remote sensor data

Roger Hazelden - Technical Specialist Sensors & Optoelectronics, Conekt

HAR/170 (3D Visualisation Suite)  12:30-13:30

For a defence application, Conekt is developing a system for covert transmission of remote sensor data using a novel free-space optical technique. To implement the concept in a real-world application there are challenges which will require new technology developments and materials. The talk will describe the concept and these challenges and offer an opportunity to discuss potential solutions.

Conekt is the Engineering Services division of ZF Race Engineering and provides consultancy, product development and testing services to customers in automotive, aerospace, defence, intelligent transport and a range of other industries.
