Electro-mechanical devices for the aircraft industry
Electronic product design in the aerospace sector demands high quality, reliability, and a robust and traceable supply chain. AES designs and manufactures aircraft device and airport devices for the aerospace industry, that are certified and supplied for use with aircraft, on aircraft and within the airport infrastructure in a range of aerospace applications.
The traceability and testing of aersospace products within the aerospace sector is an important part of the aerospace electronic product design and manufacturing process. AES assists with the component logistics to ensure that the electronic components are sourced from approved suppliers.
Given the long gestation periods of aerospace designs and components, key components may become scarce or obsolete. As components become scarce, strategies are required to locate, approve and if necessary replace components with approved, contemporary alternatives. This process needs to be undertaken early and measures put in place to ensure compliance. AES works with clients to source and evaluate alternative aerospace product innovation and aerospace devices and to preserve the continuity of supply.
AES is participating in a tripartite development project to develop new electro-mechanical devices for the aircraft industry.
Examples of aerospace product design and aerospace product development projects include:
Ground testing equipment manufactured for use in Europe and North America. Product traceability and build tracking is a key element in the aerospace devices production process.
Pilotless aircraft for a variety of aerospace applications including security and commercial filming.
Aerospace product design and development project in association with a specialist mechanical engineering firm that provides aircraft actuator systems.
Sensor and ignition components for pilotless aircraft systems.
Radio linked electronic controls for a leading aerospace tooling manufacturer. Products are manufactured and tested to exacting levels and supply chain initiatives track component availability and longevity.
Aerospace wiring and system calibration
Development of medical devices and technology
AES provides medical device electronics product design and product development services, prototype build and low volume manufacturing, working in-conjunction with clients to take their medical devices to market all under ISO 13485 medical approval. AES has an established track record in medical device product development and medical device contract manufacturing.
From contract manufacture of electro-mechanical and electronic equipment to surgical equipment AES can assist in the product design, testing, certification and manufacture of medical devices.
Medical device design and development projects in the medical sector range from medical equipment used directly to treat patients such as cosmetic surgery equipment for thread vein removal to associated devices in assisted living and environmental controls. AES has taken the lead in developing contactless switching technology which is used in a number of applications to control devices whilst minimising the spread of infection by removing the need for physical contact. The growing need for the use of technology to assist the elderly or infirm to remain self-sufficient is a key area of expertise.
AES has independently designed and developed contactless electronic control systems for faucets and showers, and has developed innovative ways to link internet communication with infrared, Bluetooth and radio frequency devices which are particularly useful in the assisted living sector.
Examples of product design and development projects in the assisted living sector include:
Devices and technology to monitor, record and report key parameters to remote wardens or medical staff
Intelligent access to potentially hazardous equipment such as heaters, kettles and cookers
Smart controls for lighting, television, radio, heating and portable electrical appliances
Monitoring and reporting medical parameters and summoning assistance
Reporting authorised access to a remote monitoring location
