Today marks the launch of the CorrosionRADAR StarterPACK™ which allows industry to try out predictive moisture and corrosion monitoring in a specially designed evaluation project. StarterPACK™ is a quick and easy way for companies to weigh up the benefits of Predictive Corrosion Management (PCM) in tackling the challenges of Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI).
The CorrosionRADAR StarterPACK™ project is the definitive starting point in the journey towards PCM. Carefully designed to help companies make the right decision, StarterPACK™ provides the technical data and business justification required to support complete adoption of continuous online CUI monitoring and detection.
StarterPACK™ aims to accelerate validation of data driven PCM across oil, gas, chemical and petrochemical industries. For operators, it means informed decision making,optimised maintenance programmes, safer and more reliable operations with decreased risk and more production uptime.
The StarterPACK™ is focused on CorrosionRADAR’s award-winning solution and combines unique functionalities of its Moisture and Corrosion Monitoring Systems in one package, with a user-friendly analytics dashboard.
Continuous CUI detection, localisation and monitoring
Understanding on how data is transmitted, integrated and visualised
Understanding on how data is analysed for effective decision support
Reporting on business cases and ROI calculations
StarterPACK™ users have complete access to CorrosionRADAR resources and knowhow. CorrosionRADAR engineers help first by assessing company needs, identifying system configuration, guiding system set-up and integration, then supporting with data interpretation and visualisation of CorrosionRADAR system outcomes.
At the end of the project, companies will have generated the following in preparation for next steps:
System performance report
Business case and associated use cases
Recommended field deployment plan for scale-up
CorrosionRADAR is able to run a select number of projects this year and recommends that companies get in touch with the CorrosionRADAR team to discuss objectives and scope deliverables in detail.
CorrosionRADARis recognised internationally for its technology, research and development focused on monitoring and predictive solutions to address problems with corrosion. The company has worked with asset management teams all over the world and fully understands the impact of predictive Corrosion Monitoring to improve outcomes associated with safety, asset availability and operational expenditure.
A spin-out from Cranfield University, CorrosionRADAR was founded in 2017 by Dr Chiraz Ennaceur, Dr Prafull Sharma and Dr Mehrdad Silatani to integrate novel Electro-Magnetic Guided Radar (EMGR) sensing technology* into a trusted product range that would allow the industry to continuously monitor and accurately predict Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI).
The CorrosionRADAR team combined the patented EMGR technology with predictive analytics in an Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) network to create the world’s longest-range predictive corrosion monitoring solution suitable for any asset across the oil and gas, power and utilities, industrial manufacturing, renewable and civil infrastructure sectors.
Attracting significant investment along the way, CorrosionRADAR’s technology is now installed in plants across the globe, where its systems are fast-tracking the move from manual inspection to automated monitoring, and from reactive to predictive corrosion management.

Tokyo, Japan, June 1, 2020 — Positive ONE, today announced that the Japan Patent Office(JPO) has issued a formal notice allowing Positive ONE’s patent application directed to its regarding next-generation edge computing, IoT, and AI technologies for 5G and 6G mobile technology.
JPO Patent (Patent No. 6703236): It is suitable for processing big data by 5G and 6G mobile services. Especially for images obtained from multiple cameras, it performs overloaded processing such as image classification, object detection, and gesture recognition. Under that situation, it is an architecture that can realize load distribution to the right place.
“The sgnificant increase in power consumption due to 5G and 6G is a bottleneck. This latest patent solves that problem. It can be applied to the architecture of next-generation edge computers and IoT terminals for 5G and 6G. Furthermore, the key is the power-saving design that makes full use of the high density and miniaturization technology, which is an advantage of PositiveONE. Then, we are currently applying for additional patents to strengthen our rights.” said Shoichi Kudo, CEO & COO, Positive ONE.
“July 2019, Positive ONE applied the Tokyo Metropolitan Government management innovation plan, approved as an innovation business for small IoT terminals. As part of that extension, a patent was granted to implement a distributed system for 5G and 6G technologies. In particular, server systems on the cloud process a lot of data, so the load is already distributed. In most data processing, processing by function distribution and load distribution is performed. Also, with mobile services that connect with 5G and 6G, even in edge computers and IoT terminals, there is a need to handle large amounts of data such as 4K / 8K video. Therefore, if you are not connected to 5G or 6G, in situations such as infrastructure failures, In order to prevent processing stop and delay on edge computers and IoT terminals, It is necessary to have the same or a minimum processing function as the cloud server. In other words, in small edge computers and IoT terminals, the processing capacity is improved, in order to realize low consumption and miniaturization, It is necessary to realize distributed technology that combines small SoCs.”
“By the way, in particular, the server system on the cloud performs a lot of data processing, so the load is already distributed, in most data processing, processing by function distribution and load distribution is performed,” he added.
