Summary:

Active in the defence market for over 70 years and specialises in rugged electronics packaging, signature management and display systems

Description:

Aish Technologies Limited is a systems design and manufacturing company that specialises in the protection of electronic equipment in harsh environments.  The company is based in Poole, Dorset, in a purpose-built facility that allows the company’s full range of manufacturing techniques to be carried out on one site.  The site has been cleared for storage of and access to classified material. 

Aish Technologies has an enviable legacy in the supply of equipment to the naval and marine sector, and as a Small-to-Medium Enterprise (SME) we have established a reputation as an agile and responsive mid-tier company whose goal is to provide innovative and best-value solutions to its customers through the use of first-class design and manufacturing facilities staffed by a highly trained and committed team.

Aish Technologies is renowned for the design and manufacture of innovative, purpose built, rugged multi-function consoles, cabinets, electronic racks and enclosures, flat panel displays and impressed current cathodic protection (ICCP) systems.   The development of these successful products has given us expertise and knowledge in depth to provide a service to our customers in the design, development and manufacture of a wide range of specialist military and commercial hardware.

Rugged Multifunction Consoles

Aish Technologies is the leading supplier of operator consoles to the RN, including Combat Management System and Platform Management System consoles for Type 45, command system consoles for Trafalgar Class submarines and the new Common Console, a generic turn-key dual display console which will be fitted throughout Astute Class and Vanguard Submarines.

The consoles can be supplied with up to four screens, in horizontal or vertical configuration, and with a number of processing options.  Ancillary requirements such as KVM switching, touch panels and dedicated keypads can also be provided.

Low Signature Cathodic Protection

Protection against corrosion has become a major factor in submarine through-life costs and surface ships where efficient protection can extend the period between dry docking.  The Aish Technologies Impressed Current Cathodic Protection system combines a comprehensive shield against galvanic currents with an extremely low electrical signature that, combined with effective signature modelling, reduces the threat of detection by mines and other assets.  The Aish solution is modular and scalable, allowing the system to be tailored to suit expected mission profiles, platform configuration and budget.

Aish Technologies’ Low Signature ICCP systems are in service on a number of UK and US platforms. We are the world leader in Low Signature ICCP, with more systems in service than any other supplier.

Rugged Enclosures

Advanced mechanical and thermal modelling tools underpin Aish Technologies’ innovative approach to the design of rugged cabinets and enclosures.  These allow us to produce mounted and portable enclosures that are optimised for electronics packaging density and environmental performance whilst minimising weight and volume.  Enclosures of any form factor and ‘U’ height can be supplied, manufactured in aluminium, mild steel or stainless steel.  For many applications the use of proprietary aluminium extrusions allows environmental read-across and reduces the need for qualification testing.  The units can be supplies as basic enclosures with or without thermal (including chilled water) and power management, up to fully-wired cabinets including customer’s cabling and modules.

Rugged Flat Panel Displays

Aish Technologies has taken advantage of the latest innovations in COTS active matrix LCD screen technology to design and produce a range of rugged flat panel displays that outperform its competitors in a number of key areas.   Improved picture quality, viewing angle, contrast ratio and response time have resulted in reduced operator fatigue and freedom from refresh artefacts, making them especially suited to Sonar. They have become the displays of choice for combat systems across the RN fleet, and have been retro-fitted into a number of legacy systems such as Sonars 2054 and 2076 and the Nautis Command System.

Display sizes range from 8.4” to 55”, and include both standard and wide aspect ratios.  Smaller displays are fitted with touch masks; some can be supplied with integral processing.  Full details are available on request.

Subcontract Manufacturing

The same superb manufacturing facilities and project management infrastructure that make our own products so competitive are available on a build to print basis, for both defence and commercial markets.  Process improvements such as Lean Manufacturing and Six Sigma, plus a continuous investment in machine tools and resource planning systems, have created a first class one-stop-shop for companies looking to outsource their manufacturing.  Capabilities include MIG, TIG and spot welding using coded welders; CNC laser cut sheet metal and CNC 3-axis machining; spray painting; copper and fibre-optic wiring; mechanical and electrical assembly; electronics assembly in purpose-built clean room facilities.
