MASS Joins National Instruments Alliance Partner Network

MASS, a Cohort plc company, is pleased to announce that it has joined the National Instruments (NI) Alliance Partner Network.  MASS joined the Alliance following the successful achievement of Certified LabVIEW Developer status by its staff, after a series of rigorous examinations.  Being part of the Alliance means that MASS is part of a select group of global companies providing flexible and high-quality measurement, test and control system solutions to engineers and scientists across a wide range of industries. 

MASS’s strengths have evolved over its 30 year history, during which time it has developed and proven its capabilities in contract research and development, with particular strengths in system engineering and project management.  MASS provides full life cycle coverage, including applied research, consulting, design, development, system integration and support.  Expert areas include the design and provision of integrated environments for testing, system integration, signal measurement, analysis and control.

As an Alliance Partner, MASS will leverage its expertise in signal processing and bespoke systems development with its in-depth knowledge of the NI toolset, including LabVIEW, TestStand, LabWindows/CVI and NI’s modular hardware architecture, to develop a wide range of innovative applications for NI’s customers. 

Ashley Lane, Managing Director of MASS, said “Being a part of the NI Alliance is good news for MASS and NI alike.  We have built a solid reputation in a number of high end technological environments including model-based software testing, interoperability testing, signal measurement, control, and communication systems development.  Through the Alliance we will be able to bring benefit to others in similar fields, helping them to develop NI-based applications that will increase their productivity and effectiveness.

Ian Matthews, European Aerospace & Defence Business Development Manager for NI stated "We have been working with MASS for over 12 years on a range of projects and their domain expertise in secure communications, networked data systems and software engineering complements our expanding European customer base in aerospace and defence radio frequency applications and test systems"
