A|2|O Innovation Solutions Ltd provides technologies for weight reduction, operational efficiency and CO2 emissions reduction.
It does this with composite material manufacturing processes and material agnostic structural health monitoring with a system known as CHASM which is now being developed into a commercial product.
Advanced Composite materials are often used for weight reduction (Light-weighting).
A|2|O’s technologies are focussed on removing the barriers to the adoption of these materials by lowering component production costs and increasing manufacturing throughput.
In addition, to address concerns on component life, A|2|O’s CHASM product enables cost-effective predictive maintenance.
In the United Kingdom, the company led the CHASM Consortium (Continuous Health Autonomous Structural Monitoring) projects in collaboration with: –
- Westfield Autonomous Vehicles Ltd.
- The STFC Hartree Centre
- Leicester University’s Advanced Structural Dynamics Evaluation Centre
- Liverpool University’s Virtual Engineering Centre
- Global manufacturers
The results of these projects are now being taken to market.
A|2|O’s innovations are primarily targeted at transportation sectors and aimed at the medium- to high-volume application of composites.
A|2|O’s technologies extend into advanced materials, sensor technology, and manufacturing processes.
To date A|2|O has won funding under LCR4.0, IoTUK Boost, LCRIBS, EEN, NVN (InnovateUK, OLEV, CENEX) and UKRI STFC CERN BIC.
Post proof of concept, A|2|O’s technologies are gaining commercial traction and A|2|O is adopting CERN Technology into the CHASM product.
