“Cooperation with prestigious business and technology partners.”

DES is a spin-off of the University of Bari’s engineering school, specialized in experimental mechanics and structural diagnostics. Our mission is the technology transfer of innovative solutions for structural diagnostics from University to Industry, through the use of non-destructive methods.

DES designs and implements data analysis and processing systems for the monitoring and maintenance of structures, plants, components and processes. We develop innovative technologies used to integrate instruments already in existence on the market by improving research results. Moreover, the company is renowned for the application of thermal methods and it cooperates with FLIR, worldwide leading manufacturer of thermal infrared cameras and state-of-the-art thermographic systems.


FLIR SYSTEMS – A global leader in design, production and marketing of infrared thermal cameras and state-of-the-art thermographic systems. FLIR Systems is our partner for THE marketing ofthermographic systems in R&D area.


CETMA – It is a no-profit organization and all its profits are invested in research, training and technology transfer. DES and Cetma cooperate in applied research in scientific, technological and industrial fields.


The School of Engineering of The University of Bari, specializing in prototypes and small–series production of innovative electronic devices and equipments of high electronic content. Our partner in the realization of MultiDES: the modular device that allows the use of different sources of thermic excitation (flash and halogen lamps, ultrasounds, laser, microwaves) in non-destructive testing with thermographic methods.



PROCMA: A company specialized in the design and creation of automated assembly systems for industry. Our partner for the industrialization of components which integrate and support diagnostic systems.
