Strategic Goals

Recent advances in near-infrared spectroscopy analysis together with low-cost, miniature, fit-for-purpose sensors on the market have paved the way for in-process monitoring. Despite advances in sensing technology, the potential of near-infrared technology has not been fully harnessed. Lack of specialised expertise hampers the reconfiguration of generic systems for different production environments.
