Chairman's visits Durham University meeting executive leadership and 3 academic departments

Dr Carl Stephen Patrick Hunter OBE and members of the Coltraco Ultrasonics team visited Durham University meeting executive leadership and 3 academic departments, in regards to the Durham Institute of Research, Development, and Invention and the Centre for Underwater Acoustic Analysis.

As well as meetings with current undergraduates working on a DIRDI project, Carl gave a presentation to the 2nd year undergraduates of the Physics Department to ask those who wish to join its applied scientist “Edisonian Commercalisation” team in ultrasound, acoustics, electromagnetism and information engineering.

In a recent newsletter Dr Hunter stated about Durham Institute of Research, Development, and Invention and the Centre for Underwater Acoustic Analysis:

In July 2021 our brilliant Physicists and Scientists established our new laboratory which is co-located with the Centre for Advanced Instrumentation, Department of Physics, Durham University.

In December 2021, after 3 years work, and the kind support of the Vice-Chancellor, his leadership team and eminent Professors of Physics, Paula Chadwick and Douglas Halliday, Durham University kindly agreed for us to establish our Institute. It will comprise a “Newtonian Discovery” Team of Theoretical Physicists to undertake fundamental research into the physical laws of our Universe, which to me God created, alongside a far larger “Edisonian Commercialisation” team to diversify our technological base in ultrasonic, acoustics, electro-magnetism and information engineering.
