Lydbrook, Gloucestershire, 23 April 2012 Charles Curry, Founder and Managing Director of Chronos Technology Limited, the Forest of Dean based Technology Company, has been awarded an Honorary Professorship from the University of Bath, Faculty of Engineering and Design.

Chronos and Bath University’s Faculty of Engineering and Design, (Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering), have been working closely together in collaborative research over the last five years.  The research has been focused on detection of GPS interference and jamming and was based on a detection algorithm developed by the University.  This research has propelled Chronos into the global lead position in the detection of interference and jamming of the signals from the Global Positioning System (GPS) used in every day satellite applications.

Charles Curry explained “This is a tremendous honour.  Having entered the industrial world from University in 1973, I never dreamed that I would become more closely associated with academic research as we have done at Chronos working with the team at Bath’s Faculty of Engineering and Design, Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering.

Gary Hawley, Professor of Automotive Engineering and Dean and Medlock Chair of Engineering, Faculty of Engineering and Design, commented “We are delighted to award this Honorary Professorship title to Charles in recognition of the collaborative work he has undertaken with the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering and his commitment to developing the career opportunities of our students.”
