We have a long-established history of working with some of the UK’s leading academic establishments,  supporting a diverse range of teaching and research projects.  We have delivered cutting-edge research and innovation projects across a broad spectrum of specialist fields, from aerospace and civil infrastructure to zoology and smart grids. 

We are able to provide full project end-to-end delivery of a complex, real-time, high-speed integrated system or supplement your project team with key services. We are happy to engage at any stage of the project, from scoping and technical specification, through to project completion, perhaps due to changes in personnel or resource. 

Whatever support you require we can help.

Our initial contact with Austin Consultants was made at the recommendation of representatives of National Instruments; a world leading test, measurement & control company. We were able to discuss an initial scope of work by telephone conferencing and subsequent conversations enabled a clear definition of the project which was to be developed with a range of options tailored to the limitations of our budget and timescales. I was totally satisfied with the outcome and I continue to consider Austin Consultants as a provider of solutions within this area of expertise.

The team at Austin Consultants have created a new data acquisition system for the UCL towing tank using NI hardware. We are very pleased with the work that they have done from start to finish. They have been available to help us on matters which worked alongside the data acquisition system and were a fundamental pediment in ensuring that our complete set-up worked to our expectations. The communication with the company was always good and up to date making this project a pleasure to work on.  We look forward to working with Austin consultants again to continue improving our systems.

Austin Consultants were instrumental in developing the smart grid laboratory and delivering a flexible platform that ensures long term return on our investment. The laboratory facilitates research into the challenges and problems at the diverse stages of electric power systems and applications, ranging from generation and conversion to transmission, distribution, and consumption.

Austin Consultants has made an invaluable contribution in terms of delivering a successful project. They made an immediate and positive impact on the project – from an in-depth understanding of the practical technical and safety issues to the more strategic deployment of the control system. They have helped to ensure the ICAIR system offers a robust and flexible platform and delivers the return on investment.

The team at Austin Consultants have delivered a great visitor experience that enhances the public’s understanding of elephants. From the initial consultancy through to the display’s installation the Austin team were very creative and proactive, working with us to meet all our requirements within the tight timescale and budget.

The EVolution Test Cell Control and Data Acquisition System was integrated with the existing test cell infrastructure and equipment to maximise existing resource utilisation and return on investment whilst at the same time incorporating the latest test cell features and requirements. The Austin Consultants team have been invaluable in integrating the new high-speed deterministic system into our test cell, efficiently and effectively managing all the complex integration issues and our specific needs. The state-of-art multi-axis e-machine test capability is a unique asset for our research activities and industrial collaborators.

I approached Austin Consultants to quote for a large piece of development work on a complex and not yet fully specified project. From start to finish, the whole team gave realistic advice and real-world estimates. We at the university now have a solid working relationship with Austin, and I personally would recommend them to anyone.

Austin stuck with the project through difficult times, communicating clearly throughout. This let us assess what needed to be done, and when.The project was completed to our satisfaction, and it is very likely that we will engage their services again on other projects in the near future. It was a pleasure to work with professionals like the team from Austin.

Austin developed code which is necessary for running essential equipment within a month from start of project to end, and a month before the deadline. I will return to Austin when I need LabVIEW developing in the future.
