The iX Challenge competition, delivered by KTN, is supporting BAE Systems Surface Ships to identify innovative solutions to enhance and enrich the Maritime Mission Systems marketplace. This long-standing, traditional market has recently become primed for new lines of thinking from the not-so-usual suspects. Top-performing solutions will be invited to participate in a Codeathon within a warship environment alongside those with the keys to the vessels concerned. No good idea or refined solution will be left behind.
Locating faults in onshore aluminium cables
SSE Renewables is looking for innovations in monitoring the cable and establishing the potential failure point in the cable from the sub-stations in as near to real time as possible. Ideally, this should aim to replacing or mitigate the need for the manual Megger test e.g. by inline tracing. The winning business(es) in this competition will be given a commercial opportunity to deliver their solution, and receive support from SSE Renewables, KTN, Catapults and the wider Innovate UK network.
