01 Aug 2012 – Copernicus Technology Ltd (CTL) is proud to announce that it is now an Industry Partner of the EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Through-life Engineering Services (EPSRC Centre in TES), which is based at Cranfield University.  As part of our contribution to the EPSRC Centre in TES, last month CTL delivered an Ncompass™ 4000 to the Centre’s R&D team who are running a 3-year research project into No Fault Found (NFF).  CTL is also providing specialistadvice and assistance to the NFF research team.

28 Aug 2012 – Copernicus Technology Ltd (CTL), Europe’s leading innovators in the field of No Fault Found and in solutions to defeat downtime, are carrying out intermittent fault detection and integrity testing on RAF Chinook helicopters to support the UK’s Ministry Of Defence (MOD) in their endeavours to improve the maintainability and availability of this vital helicopter fleet.

These test trials have already successfully demonstrated the unique capabilities of the Ncompass™ 4000 test equipment in the testing of components ranging from wiring to switch panels to circuit breakers.  The MOD is extremely pleased with the extent of the Ncompass™ test results so far and is reviewing what maintenance actions to take in light of the test findings.  In addition, Ncompass™ testing will also be carried out on other Chinook systems and components in the near future, and CTL will publish further details in due course.
