ADM Shine Technologies Ltd was founded in September 2005. The tri-service capabilities and knowledge within the Company
stretch beyond the traditional Electronic Warfare set of capabilities for the breadth of tactical through to strategic needs;
From 20 Hz to 110 GHz. Mostly Comms, some Radar. Fixed to wireless. Plain or encrypted.... We are a Research and Development
business that focuses on applied and advanced research - aimed at the four core specialist domains of Electronic Warfare (Expert
Level at the Comms ESM/ECM aspects), Advanced Devices, Special Projects and Infomatics. We design the power systems right
through to the antennas [-185C to +125C] and everything else in-between....
Our knowledge set gives most of
our products the edge of 'Ostendo et Insequor' which is apt for our end customers and users as this is the ability
to "Reveal & Pursue". It is this goal and the technological aspiration that gave the Company its 'Shine'
name - to brighten that which lacks lustre and visibility - in essence to reveal.
The commercial communications
(not just military communications) knowledge within the Company is significant and the key design knowledge of strategic as
well as tactical capabilities makes the Company unique within the marketplace of special projects and more than capable of
creating high value with high impact innovation/IP. This communications knowledge is to a depth and breadth to be able to
design country-level telecommunication and data networks and capabilities; not just specific specialist solutions for such.
The challenges are growing and they are getting much more complex and often have global elements now like they never had before
- see our Snapshot of this really complex area
and one in which we have several active research programmes
and extensive knowledge and know-how. Even though the data volumes can be enormous today - spare a sobering thought that
a gram of human DNA can theoretically hold around 455 exabytes of information.
The project work is complemented
with a commercial thread to the business in the development of the next generation
flight data and cockpit voice recorders (ED112-compliant and soon the new EUROCAE ED155-compliant). The functionality
of these recorders far exceeds the existing capabilities and recording times, offering significant safety benefits through
whole-life flight data analysis and maintenance schedule analysis. Our drive is to make crash analysis more focused and to
prevent (where possible) such events from occurring in the first place.
The combined recording capabilities
are extended to include all images received from any craft-borne CCTV cameras. They also include the sophisticated capabilities
that ensure rapid location which go beyond the standard ELT and ULB (where fitted).
We have long recognised
that in order to deliver effective defence and high-end products you need strong security of the IT servers, firewalls and
most often overlooked are the end-clients. To that end, we have finally approached SOPHOS
and are pleased to announce that we are now a partner and will soon be offering all their high-end solutions as a standard
configuration on all our products that have a PC, mobile device or server supplied by us, and we will be offering the
products for general sale business-to-business. You can see more at our Secure Products Pages for Platforms
and Mobiles & Tablets
. We are keen to also promote the UK Government Cyber Essentials Information Assurance Scheme
to ensure businesses - especially small and medium enterprises - have the right protections and controls in place.
The Summer Budget 2015 introduced a National Living Wage of £9 p.h. by 2020. Our Salaries
and our Employment Benefits
are well benchmarked and we believe are very good; however, we strive to offer good terms and conditions of employment. Therefore
we decided to immediately increase our junior salaries to no lower than £8 p.h. thereby exceeding the National
Minimum Wage at that date and the rise from April 2016. In January 2016 we have not excluded these junior salaries
from enjoying any pay rise the Board elects. The salaries will be updated shortly.
Our new State of the Art
Labs are under a year away - recruiting is about to commence in February 2016 to build the Company to three dozen staff
by end Spring 2016 and six dozen by end of Autumn 2016. Potential staff should be aware that those who are or are thinking
about becoming Reservists
(including those roles/trades with Special Engagements, or Civil Contingency Reaction Forces [CCRF], or High Readiness
] status) are all warmly welcomed on very supportive terms
[see UK MoD SaBRE
as to why we do this]. We warmly welcome British Armed Service Personnel joining ADM Shine Technologies Ltd for short-term
assignments, long-term, career moves and for rehabilitation where possible. We have made such Forces-Friendly commitments
long before the creation of the Corporate Covenants introduced in 2013. We embrace this new covenant for companies and we
are pleased to say our Company Board has approved our signing
up such and committing that to policy. We have a page covering all our Corporate Covenant Work
and also as part of our ongoing commitment a number of Support The Forces
projects listed for your enjoyment - including for the Centenary a number of Picture Galleries
, maps, charts and write up on the importance of World War 1
The image above on this page is by Howard Godfrey and is the INMOS T900 in its base ceramic packaging prior to
final testing and final encasement. It is not known if this was from the Gamma Design wafers - an important step in the
evolution of Electronic Warfare Sensor design given the early HPC usage of the Transputer.
