We are pleased to announce that Diamond Point Embedded Computing, industrial computing specialists based in Rochester, will be providing key electronic control systems for BLOOHOUND SSC. 

This essential support provides us with multi channel data acquisition capabilities and the multiple Athena II processors both critical components for the development of the Land Speed Record Car’s highly complex control system.
 
Diamond Point Embedded Computing has been established in the UK since 1983 and is at the forefront of industrial computing technology.
 
Commenting on the collaboration John Vaines, Managing Director of Diamond Point, said: "We at Diamond Point are very excited by the whole BLOODHOUND story and are very proud to have been asked to help out on BLOODHOUND's embedded computing needs. As the UK comes to terms with its dwindling manufacturing base and looks at the cost to the country from our over reliance on the services / banking sector, it is initiatives like Bloodhound we need to fire the next generations enthusiasm  for real engineering"
