In 1971, Tim Hooper, then a senior lecturer at The University of New South Wales (Sydney, Australia), envisaged a communications training system which would allow students to set-up communications laboratory experiments without time consuming preparations and the need for a test bench of instruments.
The result of his inspiration and vision was TIMS : Telecommunication Instructional Modelling System, a flexible and versatile communications trainer that incorporated all of the instruments needed to quickly and easily carry out every communications laboratory experiment required in a university level course.
In 1985 Emona, together with Tim Hooper and in consultation with local universities, modernised the TIMS system.
Today, Tim Hooper's original TIMS concept has proven its success by serving tens of thousands of students in over 15 countries. It is now the most modern and advanced telecommunications training system available in the world.
Emona's ongoing development program focuses on specialised areas of communications. This ensures that students using TIMS will have practical experience in the latest areas of telecommunications theory.
In manufacturing standards, Emona is committed to a quality policy that ensures the reliability of TIMS in a demanding teaching environment. Stringent quality control procedures are enforced during assembly, calibration and burn-in testing. Final testing guarantees TIMS performance according to specifications.
