- Trackwise Designs, which provides specialist products using printed circuit technology, said it had signed a collaboration agreement with GKN Aerospace for ice protection systems.

GKN Aerospace and Trackwise would build upon existing development work by advancing the manufacture of the systems to rate production level capability.

'Following nearly two years of joint product development, this is a significant milestone in our engagement with GKN, taking us a step closer to aerospace production at scale,' chief executive Philip Johnston said.

'The capabilities involved are wholly aligned with those being developed by Trackwise for Improved Harness Technology and while aerospace qualification is a lengthy process, the size of the potential end markets means that the future revenue potential for our technology is significant.'
