Global expertise in large and growing sectors
We have unique skills, training and qualified personnel that enable us to work across defence and industrial (mining, utilities, rail) markets. Our team has deep experience in the design of intelligent systems, sensing, monitoring, information collation and analysis, ruggedised solutions, connected technologies, IoT technologies, safety critical design and more, enabling us to meet the challenges of our clients in these market sectors.
Our structured processes deliver breakthrough outcomes. From early insights and investigations to facilitate a deeper understanding of a project’s challenges; concept generation, industrial design and engineering to developed the best solution for the user; and systems engineering for the project to progress to functional prototypes, DFMA, and production support through our ecosystem of manufacturers. Hydrix has the track-record, the skills, and the know-how to develop market ready products and technologies fast.
Hydrix is driving innovation and developing products to improve efficiency and safety in demanding environments. Our broad engineering expertise enables us to undertake a diverse range of projects developing robust products suitable for long-term performance, utilising cutting edge solutions and game changing technology. From wearable sensors to radiation imaging devices; process monitoring to communications devices; we are helping our clients bring challenging products to market.
Industrial design, graphical user interface (GUI), software architecture and thermal design for a device using compressed sensing technology to detect radiation.
Software, electronics, and systems engineering to help create world-first, real-time, drowsiness and alertness sensing eyewear.
Through innovation in the IoT sensor space, Hydrix has developed a suite of specialised IoT applications to better predict, manage and control various aspects of utility networks from a desktop or remote device. These include cost-leading IoT sensors which operate under harsh environmental conditions, immersed in a corrosive, explosive environments, and battery-powered sensors designed for exposure to full sun and UV in the scorching Australian summer. Our sensors are suitable for integration into a range of utility devices including water and sewage.

Case Study Design development of the world's most advanced radiation imaging solution
Development of the CORIS360™
Described as the world’s most advanced radiation imaging solution, CORIS360 is a game-changing technology that pinpoints the exact location of radiation sources faster and more accurately than before.
Hydrix worked with ANSTO on key aspects of the product development of CORIS360 including industrial design, Graphical User Interface (GUI) development, software architecture and thermal design. Our role was critical in enabling the device to meet the robustness and long-term performance required in such demanding environments.
“This is a great example of Australian innovation that will improve worker safety and operational decision making for anyone working in a radiation environment.”
Acting CEO, ANSTO
