Sci-Tech Systems Ltd was established in 2003, merging Peter and Christine's own consultancy companies.
Peter and Christine had already worked together for some years, and were aware of the complementary nature of their skill sets.
They now provide one consultancy offering skills spanning hardware design, embedded systems, project lifecycle management, and expertise in software and mathematical algorithm development.
They have a wide range of contacts with electronic and software skills who can be called on to accelerate development or to fill skill gaps if required.
Peter Hall MRIN Director
Has strong expertise in electronic hardware combined with software knowledge. He holds an HNC in Electronics and Electrical Engineering and is a member of the Royal Institute of Navigation. He has worked in the RAF on long range Radar systems, and for Plessey, STC and Marconi Radar. After forming his first company, he worked on the development of the Tornado GR4 Aircraft Simulator, then moved on to flagship projects for the Navy, Air Force and Army, on CCIS Systems, Communications Systems, Avionics and other smaller Defence projects. A keen sailor, he used his interest in navigation to create an in-vehicle GPS navigation system long before they appeared for cars. He owns a classic yacht (now 111 years old) and crews regularly in offshore and local races. His other interests include walking, yacht restoration (1936 Johnson & Jago Two and a half tonner in the final stages, in the water and sailing) and music, both listening and playing.
