We have many customers that operate in diverse industries that do not fit into our defined industry categories. There are so many applications that could benefit from our solutions it is not possible to list them all. Here are a few more companies that are currently using our products to improve their processes.
European Southern Observatory (ESO)
European Southern Observatory (ESO) is the top intergovernmental astronomy organization in Europe and the world's most productive astronomical observatory. ESO provides state-of-the-art research facilities to astronomers and is supported by Austria, Belgium, Brazil, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
Telescope mirror recoating is a daunting job. ESO requires precise monitoring of the coating process in order to reduce the aberrations that are common with mirrors. By using our Historian and trending tools, ESO is able to closely monitor real-time process trends of the coating process. They can also compare historical trends of previous processes very quickly to the live process in order to ensure uniformity on the surface of the mirror. They have been very satisfied with how our trending tools allow them to monitor the resurfacing projects in real-time. They can find variances in coating levels easier than before.
Bechtel Plant Machinery
Bechtel Plant Machinery is a prime contractor for the U.S. Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program. They provide design, manufacturing, and procurement management for nuclear power plant components in submarines and aircraft carriers.
We worked with Bechtel to supply Historian and trending applications in Navy vessels to monitor the operations and performance of various ships and submarines. Our products have been installed on thirty nuclear powered Los Angeles class submarines and ten Nimitz class aircraft carriers. Submarine operators can monitor and quickly analyze over 10,000 variables throughout the submarines from many (up to 30 per vessel) display stations. Aircraft carrier operators can utilize the software to view over 25,000 variables from 60 display stations per ship.
