Our Team

„Men [and women] wanted for hazardous journey. Low wages, bitter cold, long hours of complete darkness. Safe return doubtful. Honour and recognition in event of success.“

Sir Ernest Henry Shakleton (1874 – 1922) was a polar explorer who led three British expeditions to the Antarctic. Don’t worry, we won’t send you to the Antarctic. Yet a Rocket Scientist needs the spirit of an explorer, someone with a relentless appetite and drive to succeed.

We have a restless drive to understand. Until the problem is known and fully understood, we don’t start working on solutions but keep asking those (annoying) questions. This is our philosophy.

Our promise

We turn complex scientific
challenges into novel
product dimensions
create added value.

Shaping sound

The concept of eliminating noise & vibrations with its negative equivalent goes as far back as June 1933, when Paul Lueg filed his patent on “silencing sound oscillations”. Yet active noise control has never found widespread application until recently. Read our case studies to learn how you can use the technology.

Using sound

Sound is stronger than light and carries an abundance of information. To date many tools, machines and robots still are deaf. We are here to provide them with ears and use the information to understand and interact effectively.
