KINETIX Data Intelligence

Get more intelligence from your data.

Gathering vessel and crew exposure data is the first step in optimizing your performance.

KINETIX can also help agencies understand the significance of the data set and implement critical actions to maximize asset performance.


Tailored advice from the authorities on shock mitigation.

Receive detailed reporting from a team of shock and vibration scientists who have dedicated their careers to keeping people safer on the water. Individually, their technical knowledge encompasses decades of research with impact mitigation, and collaboratively, they're a force to be reckoned with. With the KINETIX program, you get one-on-one support from this dynamic team, so you can be confident that your shock mitigation strategy is delivering the results you need.

Ph.D-level shock and vibration specialists.

Dr. Tim Rees, Ph.D.

Dr. Tim Rees, Ph.D.

Dr. Rees holds a Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics with a specialization in fluid dynamics and computational methods. Since joining SHOXS in 2015, Tim has focused on the design and optimization of suspension systems for the marine impact environment, and he was involved in an ISO effort to develop a shock-mitigating seat performance test standard. Tim remains active in the development and evaluation of suspension systems and testing methods, and is committed to reducing shock and vibration to those who work on the water.

Laboratory Expert

Dr Tom Gunston MIOA is a Physicist with a PhD in whole-body vibration (WBV) from the Institute of Sound and Vibration Research at the University of Southampton in the UK. He is internationally recognised as an expert in WBV assessment, having worked in this area for over 20 years.

Tom carried out WBV-related research as a Research Fellow at the University of Southampton and later at the University of Sheffield. He was a Research Group Leader on human vibration exposure at the defence contractor QinetiQ and throughout his career he has worked as a consultant to military, SAR and leisure sector marine craft operators including the Ministry of Defence and the RNLI. He has specialised in managing WBV exposures in fast boats but has also been involved in managing vibration exposure from armoured vehicles, fixed and rotary-wing aircraft, industrial and agricultural vehicles and construction equipment.

In recent years he has acted as an Engineering Expert Witness for legal cases involving vibration exposure, including cases of injuries to high speed craft passengers and crew. He is currently the Chairman of the British Standards committee on human exposure to vibration and he has served as Chairman, Convenor or Principal UK Expert on various European (CEN) and International (ISO) technical committees concerned with this subject.
