In the forensic and security fields, we work closely with law enforcement, anti-terrorism forces, customs and drug enforcement agencies, as well as accident investigation bureaux.

Based just outside Cambridge in the attractive village of Fulbourn, we occupy our own premises with ample, free on-site parking as well as easy access to nearby shops and amenities, and we offer a relaxed and productive working environment within the Cambridge technology bubble. We value lifestyle and a relaxed atmosphere in which employees can achieve their full potential, and offer flexible working hours to accommodate staff needs. In addition to salary, there is a substantial bonus scheme that is available after 12 months' employment.

We have a truly international reach, but are small enough for each employee to make a real difference. We not only manufacture world-leading products, but actively pursue research into new audio techniques. We have strong academic links with Cambridge University, one of the world's leading centers for digital signal processing research, and include two Cambridge University professors and a Director Of Studies among our Directors, further strengthening our abilities to remain at the forefront of our field.
