University of the West of Scotland (UWS) spinout and sensor technology scale-up company Novosound is set to expand its footprint in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region, capitalising on recent client wins with global energy giants in the Middle East and North America.

Novosound’s Ceilidh system, which is fully patented, seeks to addresses industry challenges such as corrosion under composite wraps, offering what it calls a ‘significant breakthrough in non-destructive testing.’

It will be showcased at the 20th World Conference for Non-Destructive Testing (WCNDT) in Incheon, South Korea, from 27th to 30th May.

Dave Hughes, CEO and Founder of Novosound, stated:

“The Ceilidh system represents a significant breakthrough in the field of non-destructive testing, addressing complex challenges and specifically tailored for industries where corrosion monitoring is absolutely critical.”

In addition to presenting the Ceilidh system, CEO Dave Hughes will meet with South Korean technology and electronics companies to showcase Novosound’s Slanj platform, a wireless wearable ultrasound system currently being trialled with partners in the USA and Europe.

The Slanj platform uses technology to provide deeper insights into body biometrics, such as blood pressure and dehydration, surpassing the capabilities of optical, magnetic, and electrical sensors.

“We look forward to exploring potential collaborations across the industrial and digital health sectors during our forthcoming visit to South Korea, as we proudly carry the banner for Scottish innovation and its world-class capabilities,” Hughes.
