Vector and Scalar Products Ltd (VSPL)

Vector & Scalar Products

VSPL Marlow UK

We provide data storage solutions and services. I know we've got a bit of a funny name, but it explains our heritage.

We were established in 1988 by Russ Gadd and Barrie Alaway to provide leading edge super computing solutions to the scientific community within Europe. The name is derived from the different types of processors used in the supercomputers we sold back then, like in Cray Supercomputers...

Technology doesn't stand still. Vector supercomputers simply couldn't keep up with the price/performance of microprocessors and there was a trend towards parallel processing. We reacted to the market and offered systems with superscalar microprocessing re-establishing VSPL as a High Performance Tech Computer (HPTC) partner for DEC. To remain relevant to modern day working we've continued to adapt and evolve as a business with technology advancements, yet we still rely upon our deep knowledge of high performance computing gained over many years when supporting our customers.

Who do we work with today?

We focus the knowledge gained over 27 years to provide data storage solutions and services to organisations within Central Government, education, local authorities, schools, law enforcement and other security agencies. We offer demonstrable experience in delivering enterprise wide IT projects, and rely upon an efficient knowledgeable team who maintain benchmark industry accreditations to provide reliable input at key stages throughout every engagement. Our ethos is to provide our clients with an agile, responsive IT computing solution to suit any budget.

Our capability?

By combining our unique capabilities as a solution provider and storage integrator, we create real value for our customers by providing an integrated suite of solutions and services to enable their IT to adapt to evolving business requirements. If a product is not available off the shelf, we also provide the capability to integrate a solution through our ability to bring together products and services from our vendor partners, customise Component Off The Shelf (COTS) technology, or design bespoke hardware and software.

Marquee Projects

Mixing station control

Mixing Station Control

A global media conglomerate selected VSPL to integrate the computing control system for their ground breaking professional digital audio mixing station. Although superseded by new technology, we continue to maintain this vital element of the mixing station for recording studios still relying upon this system.

F1 telemetry solution

Portable Rugged Telemetry

We were selected by a leading engine supplier to Formula 1 teams to help design and build a bespoke, high performance telemetry solution. By working closely with the client's engineers and software team, VSPL delivered a prototype system within just six weeks from initial contact. VSPL delivered the entire solution on budget and on time which remained in service for ten years. Integrated in transportable rugged data cabinets, the systems performed with unprecedented reliability, despite the rigours of continuous worldwide shipping and handling, due to a radical and unique upgrade and maintenance procedure which was a first in the industry.

AW101 simulator interface design control

Custom Engineering Design

We've designed and built; a turnkey real time sonar data acquisition system which captured data from the seabed via a fibre optic link; the interface and drivers to enable aircraft instrumentation data tapes to be processed; the interface between the computer system running the flight model and the system which controlled the hydraulics for the AW101 (EH101) Merlin helicopter simulator.
