We like to invent, develop, assess or cost reduce a wide variety of technologies, products or processes. We typically offer fixed price contracts with an agreed project scope. We break the project down into phases with clearly defined deliverables. Our approach is to mitigate the highest technical risks at the start, by testing out the key concepts early in the project. We use this strategy to minimise costs and risks.

We can develop bespoke technologies to meet your needs and we can help you with the resulting Intellectual Property to give you ultimate control. Alternatively, you can have access to our library of existing technology which we can license to you to help speed up developments.

We can evaluate existing technologies to inform investment or product roadmap decisions, or achieve product cost reduction through technical innovation.

At Sentec, when considering a problem, we start by breaking it down and building it back up, often starting from the fundamental physics. Our goal is to generate solutions that may not originally have been envisioned – solutions that can be transformational!

We work closely with your project managers to ensure you are part of the process.

We use our labs to develop proof-of-principle (POP) prototypes to prove out the risk areas as simply and as quickly as possible.

With over 20 years of building POP prototypes for our clients, we often have relevant experience to help us move quickly.
