Montage is a technique in film editing in which a series of short shots are edited into a sequence to condense space, time, and information. The term has been used in various contexts. It was introduced to cinema primarily by Eisenstein, and early Soviet directors used it as a synonym for creative editing. In France the word "montage" simply denotes cutting. The term "montage sequence" has been used primarily by British and American studios, which refers to the common technique as outlined in this article.The montage sequence is usually used to suggest the passage of time, rather than to create symbolic meaning as it does in Soviet montage theory. From the 1930s to the 1950s, montage sequences often combined numerous short shots with special optical effects dance and music. They were usually assembled by someone other than the director or the editor of the movie. Wikipedia.

Our prime objective is to generate in excess of 22million profits for the participating companies by addressing a European need for the safe maintenance and inspection of power lines. Intel-Line is an intelligent automatic, inspection system using advanced ultrasonics and incorporating wireless transmission and energy harvesting to provide a fit and forget condition monitoring and failure alarm system. In an industry worth 210Bn and employing 1.1 million the supply of energy is vital, and with over 2million Km of overhead cable in Europe, any failure or interruption of power can cause catastrophic damage to the surroundings and to the industrial infrastructure and output. Current inspection techniques are expensive, time consuming and hazardous. Intel-Line will enable maintenance to be scheduled, reducing unnecessary maintenance costs and unexpected breakdowns. This will increase the availability of the power lines reducing the downtime. Nesne, a Turkish manufacturer of innovative electronic components is seeking investment of 2m in order to enhance and upgrade our current prototype system, scale up production, produce training materials and provide in-service demonstrations to prospective clients. MCI will enhance the software/firmware and upgrade the signal processing, PI are a specialist NDT company who will use, market and distribute Intel-Line. BIC will augment our technology to rapidly progress to commercialisation. Using Intel-Line could save EU Power line distributors in excess of 150 million/yr. End users of Intel-Line will see an ROI within 6 months. The project participants will cumulatively increase their turnover by in excess of 40 million creating at least 40 new jobs. Our ultimate ambition is for Intel-Line to be fitted to cables for new erections and retro fitted during cable repair and maintenance providing the ultimate fit and forget system to guarantee the electricity supply.

Current ECM process technology is limited in machining accuracy and process stability. The primary reason for this limitation is that the power supply units, which are at the heart of ECM are traditionally designed for the millisecond pulsed current range. Developing a power supply unit that has the capability of pulsing in the microsecond / nanosecond range, will result in more control of the process and better product, leading to improved uptimes on the shop floor and improved product quality. The SME partners in this project consortium have identified a commercial opportunity for a new generation of ECM that can offer: - Improved process stability and control - Increased accuracy (at a micron level) - Better process uptime and increased efficiency / outputs - Consistently better performing and better quality products - Shorter product development lead time This project will undertake the research and development work necessary to ensure that the SMEs in the consortium can realise this commercial opportunity through the development of a power supply unit (SMPS) that can support the next generation of ECM. The project aims to develop an SMPS that will deliver quicker electrical current pulsing rates in the microsecond / nanosecond range, resulting in an ECM with a machining accuracy better than 1 micron. The project will also develop a demonstrator / prototype that will be used for validating and demonstrating the next generation ECM. Based on research undertaken by CDAMC (in conjunction with SMPS manufacturers and suppliers), it is clear that power units in this performance range are currently not commercially available. The availability of a new generation of SMPS could result in a major step change in ECM capability and help sustain Europes leading position in ECM technology.
