DISC provides access to equipment and expertise to help you innovate and accelerate the development of new products and services.
With end-to-end design, modelling, testing – including RF antenna test ranges – and production equipment in a collaborative engineering environment, we can help you develop new solutions for large-scale market opportunities. DISC enables teams to take an R&D project from proof of concept through to a full-sized prototype, manufactured at quality levels and scales sufficient to undertake end-customer validation.
With competitive rates, the facilities are open to industry and academia and provide equipment that is frequently out-of-reach to small or medium-sized companies.
DISC at Zephyr is a 1150 sqm facility, which provides access to equipment and expertise to help UK companies accelerate the development of new products and services. It includes flexible laboratory and design areas, clean rooms, a vibration table, a thermal oven, and a wide range of other high-tech equipment.
