DETECTOR AND IMAGING SYSTEMS FOR EARTH AND SPACE

Dynamic Imaging Analytics Limited provides bespoke hardware and software solutions for imaging applications in science and engineering. 

We work in diverse industry environments including space technology, formula one (TM) motorsports, medicine and agriculture.

We also devise unique and exciting opportunities for schooolchildren to get involved in our projects, inspiring the next generation of young engineers.

OUR WORK

With over two decades of experience in CCD and CMOS imaging technology, we advise on the optimization of detectors for scientific applications and the generation of research & development themes.

 

We provide feasibility studies for novel applications using cutting edge technologies and design bespoke camera systems to provide a broad range of scientific and engineering solutions.

 

​Raising the space technology readiness levels of imaging system components and developing established technologies for exciting new space and terrestrial applications.​

DIAL also devise and partner on unique projects to engage the public and schoolchildren with science and engineering. As well as leading pioneering outreach projects such as the SμGRE-1 mission, we also exhibit at STEM events and give talks in schools and colleges

     

OUR PROJECTS

LUVMI-X LUNAR ROVER
Navigation camera, surface camera and 360 imager

The Lunar Volatiles Mobile Instrumentation (LUVMI) rover is a modular rover platform for the investigation of lunar volatiles in and around the permanently shaded regions of the Moon. The mission aims to scout such regions and make in-situ measurements to inform the selection of future mission landing sites.

The LUVMI-X rover will utilise imagers being developed by Dynamic Imaging Analytics, providing robust, miniaturised, high signal to noise and high dynamic range images in 3D to aid in the autonomous navigation of the rover platform.

The mission led by the LUVMI-X Consortium, a group of European partners from Belgium,Germany and the UK and is funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.

FORMULA ONE (TM) MOTORSPORTS
2015-2019 seasons

With our experience in developing space technologies to operate in harsh and variable environments, we have transferred technology for use at the pinnacle of motorsport engineering. 

We have developed cutting-edge vehicle performance enhancing solutions for two world championship winning teams. 

Working in this fast-paced environment we are able to protoype and test technologies which are then spun back into the space technology domain, increasing their technology readiness levels (TRL).

SuGRE-1
2018 schools experiment launched onboard NASA rocket

Dynamic Imaging Analytics funded and led this micro gravity and 3D imaging experiment called SμGRE-1(Schools micro-gravity rocket experiment). The aim of the mission was to test novel 3D imaging techniques tracking the trajectory and interactions of objects in micro-gravity. It involved 150 schools making sugar cube sized sculptures that went into space on the NASA WRX-R sounding rocket. The rocket had four other experiments onboard and was led by University of Penn State.

On the 4th April 2018 the rocket was launched from the Pacific Marshall Islands, which are located approximately halfway between Hawaii and Australia. The rocket reached a maximum height of 127 miles above the Earth and a velocity of 4,138 mph.

On the return to Earth the WRX-R rocket splashed down in the Pacific Ocean and was recovered by a famous naval ship. SμGRE-1 and its flight data were retrieved. The schoolchildren’s sculptures were returned to them as a souvenir along with a certificate to certify that their creation had flown into space.
