The NATEP funded programme “Piezoelectrically-Enabled Aero Controls”, delivered a validated ultrasonic prototype position sensor to replace conventional wire wound devices, which have inherent problems.

This innovation is possible due to novel HPZ™ materials and HotSense™ sensor technology developed by Ionix. Ionix is now working in a publicly funded programme with Rolls Royce to qualify its technology further for aerospace applications.

Other applications of the position sensor platform are now being sought, while further applications for Ionix technology in the aerospace sector are being pursued.
