Conversations with the Australian Navy began in 2013 once they learned of the benefits of the UL101 from the US Navy. Information was shared through the FMS program regarding the successful use of the UL101 for leak detection in vacuum waste water system, fire suppression, main sea water valves and compressed air.
“We were in contact with our in-country partner as well as with their military liaison at the Navy Yard in Washington DC,” said Ben Fried, VP of Sales and Marketing at CTRL Systems, Inc. “Information was shared between the organizations at each step from initial testing, adopting of the NSN and authorizations, to scheduling training and initial fielding into the fleet.”
The UL101 will be utilized by various departments in multiple applications. The recommendations were put forth from on-board ship testing and demonstrations. CTRL continues to work with the US and FMS partners to expand the use of the UL101 to pneumatic, hydraulic, mechanical, and electrical applications. Field training will begin for the fleet this summer.
“CTRL prides itself on working with the client and our in-country partner [Russell Frasier Sales],” said Fried. “Turn-key implementation including identification of applications, measured benefits and training is critical to the successful integration of any new technology. Our approach is key to the integration of ultrasound for fleet readiness, safety, and diagnostics. CTRL is honored to help improve fleet readiness with cost-effective technology for air, land, and sea.”
