OxTS is one of only seven companies shortlisted for the British Engineering Excellence Awards (BEEA) category “Small Company of the Year” 2011.
In making their decision the BEEA judges are looking for a small company that is able to demonstrate a sound and successful business addressing a particular market need. The winning company should also be able to demonstrate an evolving product portfolio and its successful reception by end users.
OxTS has been successfully designing and manufacturing GPS-aided inertial navigation systems for over 10 years. The highly accurate RT inertial and GPS systems are used by all major vehicle manufacturers in the world for testing and developing commercial and utility vehicles. By constantly listening to customer requirements and anticipating new market trends, OxTS is able to add new product features and continuously evolve its product portfolio. Today the OxTS inertial and GPS navigation systems are used for a wide range of applications. They are not only used for automotive testing and vehicle safety, where the OxTS products are leading the way, but also for other applications where accurate position and orientation information is essential. The GPS-aided inertial system are invaluable for applications such as scanning road profiles, assessing the condition of trees from the air, or navigating autonomous vehicles.
OxTS has been recognised by the judges as an engineering company which can win in the global market place and succeed against competition from much larger companies. The passion and dedication for delivering world-class products to a global market-place, despite being a small company, has led the BEEA awards panel to recognise their achievements and shortlist the company for the prestigious award.
The winner of the Small Company of the Year Award 2011 will be revealed on Thursday, 13th October at a ceremony to be held at the prestigious Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London.
