We are passionate about sound and vibration measurement and signal processing.

Our systems are designed using the knowledge that we have gained over 40 years of solving noise & vibration problems for the likes of NASA, Dow, Ford, British Aerospace, GM, Siemens, Sharp, BMW and Airbus as well as F1 teams, air forces, power generators, universities and military organisations around the world.

We needed tools with a high degree of precision and integrity to measure and analyse sound and vibration. Nothing we found was good enough; so we made our own.

Whether you are an experienced engineer or a student new to the subject, you will find articles here that will help you understand the important aspects of noise & vibration measurement.

Of course, if you need a noise & vibration measurement system or need help with noise & vibration issues, then we’d me more than happy to help. Take a look at our website – prosig.com – to discover more about our mobile measurement systems (P8000 & DATS) and our power station vibration condition monitoring solution – PROTOR.

A little history…

  • Prosig was established in 1977 by members of ISVR (Institute of Sound & Vibration Research) at Southampton University in the UK.
  • The existing UK headquarters, in Fareham UK, were completed in 1982
  • Prosig USA, Inc. was founded in 1986.
  • In 2001 an engineering center was opened in Detroit to provide high quality support to customers in the area.
  • In 2014 Prosig became part of Condition Monitoring Group (CMG) Limited. Together, Prosig & CMG have numerous product and technology synergies, which provide significant additional opportunities within key application areas that meet many of CMG’s objectives in terms of future product diversification.
  • Prosig maintains a network of agents to support business in Europe, India, China, Japan, South Korea, Australia and South America.

Prosig’s goal is to distil our expertise and knowledge of noise & vibration measurement into the best available hardware and software measurement systems.
