Whatever your electronic needs, we are confident that MeT can provide a complete, quality and
budget solution. We pride ourselves on fast and cost effective solutions without compromising
on creativity and quality.
MeT has extensive experience designing electronic schematics and printed circuit boards, even at mil-spec standards. We are confident that our electronic design knowledge will be beneficial to any project. We are also experienced designing to CE, FCC and EMI spec standards.
MeT has completed a number of projects that have extended from Proof of Concept right through to Manufacturing. Depending on unit qualitites, we can handle either in-house or third-party manufacturing options.
We are highly proficient in designing test platforms and systems. Our experience ranges from testing To-the-Component level in circa '85 boards, testing mil-spec PCB modules and producing automatic test reports, to testing manufactured units at the end of an assembly line.
We have a wide range of experience when it comes to firmware programming for microcontrollers, microprocessors, stand-alone ROMs and even simple applications that utilise PICs. Our programming knowledge ranges anywhere between the Assembly language to standard C++.
MeT prefers to use NI LabVIEW for software development, for its simplicity, scalability and maintainability. Although LabVIEW is our 'platform of choice', our experience does thoroughly extend to other forms of software programming tools and techniques.
MeT is a System Integrator for National Instruments (NI) in Brisbane, Queensland. NI specialises and is a market leader of Test, Measurement and Automation equipment. Their powerful graphical software, LabVIEW, is revolutionising these fields and MeT have highly experienced engineers certified in LabVIEW and NI system integration. MeT has produced a number of reliable automated test and measurement systems using this technology, more recently for Boeing, Raytheon, QR National, Queensland Rail and Dyno Nobel.
MeT is a Silver-Level Certified Alliance Partner in National Instruments' worldwide Alliance Program. Our certification is your guarantee of in-depth NI product knowledge, extensive application development experience, and comprehensive support and training for all National Instruments' products.
Our remote deployment experience extends from strain gauge monitoring in 45degC heat in Kalgoorlie, Western Australia, to mine truck fleet management in Queensland. MeT recommends the use of National Instruments CompactRIO devices for their rugged design and high performance.
MeT has a long list of applications that have included embedded hardware design and firmware programming. Ranging up to the latest ARM microcontrollers. Many applications have included functionality in GPS, mobile data (3G), sensor monitoring and real-time tracking.
Over the past 22 years we have tackled all sorts of projects ranging from simple PCB design
through to custom system integration, manufacturing, installing, testing and commissioning complicated
projects for a wide range of customers and industries.
We pride ourselves on the highest possible quality we apply to all projects. Below are a few showcased solutions produced by MeT.
The project to date is ongoing with very successful results so far. To date, MeT has designed applications to test two different radios, a transponder and a control panel. Continuing development will see many more test modules for different equipment being developed, making use of the existing test station hardware.
Achievements with Metal Storm:
6-Barrel Stand-alone Controller in 19" 3U Case, the first Electronic Firing Controller (FCU) prototype.
36-Barrel Firing Controller, capable of firing 1,080,000 rpm
Portable 6-Barrel FCU, capable of firing 360,000 rpm.
Smart Gun Controller, Microcontroller, battery operated handheld firing unit. 2002
Inductive 6-Barrel FCU, 40mm projectile, Computer control.
Inductive 6-Barrel Firing Unit, 40mm projectile, with wireless remote control function for UAV and Talon applications.
Inductive Shoulder FCU, for battery operated handheld firing.
The Mine Detonation Detection System (MDDS) was developed by MeT to overcome this problem. The system uses piezoelectric sensors around the Drone boat to measure the time of arrival of the pressure wave from a blast. The MDDS uses these measured timing differences to locate the position of the blast using a mathematical algorithm similar to that used by GPS receivers.
MeT's involvement in the project involved the hardware and software design, modifications to the communication protocol, system integration, third party design validation testing and full military documentation.
The project has been commissioned to the Flextronics manufacturing plant in Indonesia. Once used in full production, this system will be capable of operating 24x7, testing over 2000 units per month.
A report is generated detailing the serial number of the unit and any failed steps. Any fault finding information found in the Test Procedures relating to failed steps is included in the report to assist in the fault finding exercise. The test software has a fault finding mode that enables the software to go to a specific step in the procedure and hold there to allow fault finding to be undertaken.
What our clients are saying about us.
"MeT has completed a number of projects for QRNational Coal over the last 6 years. We have always found them to be innovative in providing solutions to the problems we have supporting the electric coal locomotives".
"MeT has worked on a number of projects for Boeing Australia over the last 10 years .We have found them to be flexible and innovative in providing solutions to the tasks we have given them. We have been impressed with their ability to work to tight deadlines and their commitment to getting the job done".
"MeT has completed a number of projects for Raytheon Australia over the past two years. These have been in hardware design and testing of military equipment. We have been very pleased with the results and will continue to utilize the resources of MeT in the future. The professionalism of the staff and the quality of the work has been outstanding".
"MeT has manufactured the HiServe systems for the Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) world wide rollout. There are currently 4 HiServe systems located around the world. These systems provide a service support interface for HDS. MeT provides support for these systems and also ongoing development of the software. MeT has been responsive and innovative in developing the product which has allowed HDS to stay one step ahead of its competitors".
"Over the last ten years MeT has helped Metal Storm to push the boundaries of what is possible in weapons technology. Together we have exceeded even our own expectations. We have often worked to tight deadlines in areas where the technology is unknown and have found MeT to continually come up with solutions to the problems that we have found on the way".
