We undertake a lot of engineering projects that cannot be shared for commercial reasons. To show some of the work that we can share we have provided our Engineering Showcase. This includes a small selection of engineering projects that we have completed and the outcome of each.

Precision Navigation: Royal Navy

The requirement was to produce a precision integrated navigation system for Mine Countermeasures Vessels. It had to comply with NATO policy over the military use of GPS including…

Assisted GPS For Telecoms

We designed the Forsberg FS-M4 microcontroller and the MICROpod-M8 specifically for a major telecom provider to meet their bespoke requirements. The system remains in operation with delivery of over 400 systems.

Attitude Determinations Systems

A customer required a system that they could use to position three objects and know the relative distances, heading and pitch between all three.. They also had the requirement …

Marine Range Tracking

We supplied a tracking system for a military test and evaluation range. We used a MICROpod receiver to run specifically designed bespoke firmware, connected to a Microhard Spectra MHX320 and built into a waterproof (IP67) Pelicase which was modified for use without needing to open the case.

NAVWAR Training Network

Forsberg designed a system utilising NovAtel NAVWAR Electronic Attack Technology (NEAT) jammers for the UK MoD who required the ability to remotely create GPS denied environments when conducting training exercises.

Aerial Infrastructure Inspection

To enable rapid collection of inspection data over several hundred kilometres of rail network at a time. This operation would be over diverse areas two or three times daily throughout…

OPTONAV Infrastructure

To enable rapid collection of inspection data over several hundred kilometres of rail network at a time. This operation would be over diverse areas two or three times daily throughout…

Red Bull Air Race

Every year one of the biggest and most exciting air races takes place testing the speed, precision and skill of the world’s best aerobatics and their planes. The requirement was to prod…

Ruggedized Smart Antenna

We were approached by a commercial customer who needed a smart antenna product compliant with a series of extended environmental and EMC tests. These requirements included a very…

Speed Reporting System

The system had to provide sub-metre positioning sufficient to correctly identify probe-vehicles travelling in a high traffic volume motorway network and interchange system. At the same…

Train Velocity Monitoring

This project was to supply a GPS system to suit the bespoke requirements of a locomotive manufacturer. Forsberg met these requirements; the customer continues to purchase the bespoke MICROpod on a regular basis.

Type 26 Frigate Anti-Jam

The Royal Navy required a GPS Anti-Jam antenna system to protect GPS-based navigation and precise timing receivers from intentional jamming and accidental interference. The system had to be resistant to high levels of shock and vibration, and suitable for a marine environment and integration.

Video Navigation

Every year one of the biggest and most exciting air races takes place testing the speed, precision and skill of the world’s best aerobatics and their planes. The requirement was to prod…

Water Flow Monitoring

The Environment Agency use a range of Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (ADCPs) to monitor river flow. This is used to aid flood models used as part of flood defence planning….
