The Yorkshire-based noise monitoring specialists, which manufactures and supplies a range of personal and environmental noise monitoring devices, clinched two contracts almost simultaneously after a tough international tender process.
The team is supplying the Maharashtra Police force in India with 627 of its Optimus Red sound level meters, all due to be shipped out before Christmas.
Maharashtra Police is the law enforcement agency responsible for the Indian state and is headquartered in Mumbai. It is one of the largest police forces in the country with over 190,000 officers, made up of around 35 district police units. Maharashtra is in the western region of India, the third-largest state with the world's second-most populated regions. It has over 112 million inhabitants with Mumbai alone home to 18 million residents.
The Optimus Red kits will be used for a variety of functions, including the monitoring of noise pollution on the region's cityscapes, congested roads, as well as at festivals and street celebrations. The Optimus Red was selected as it is perfectly suited to the multitude of tasks ahead.
Said Cirrus Research Managing Director Daren Wallis: "This is a very significant order for us, the largest ever received in our history. The fact we had less than 4 four weeks to send out the first consignment was challenging but we managed to turn it around, which led to the second order following on immediately.
"We are a global company that supplies noise monitoring equipment around the world and we're delighted to be furthering our work with the Indian police authorities who are making a substantial investment to tackle the issue of noise pollution across their vast and very diverse regions."
With more than 45 years' experience, Cirrus Research, develop, manufacture and supply their leading range of noise monitoring products to clients across the globe, including the UK, Europe, the Americas, Far East and Australia.

Words: Louis WustemannPictures: Andrew Firth“Ninety per cent of my job is not technical,” says Neil Lennox. “It’s about people. It’s about convincing somebody to do something. It’s about talking to a colleague and if they have a challenge about something, I need to be able to go back to them and explain really simply why it’s important they do X.”Lennox, who is group head of safety and insurance at the UK’s second-largest supermarket chain, says he doesn’t fall back on the law very often in these persuasive discussions.
Having passed a series of gruelling tests, the Pulsar Nova 45 sound level meter was awarded its certificate and now belongs to an exclusive club of just a few meters officially recognised for their high accuracy against international standards. This is a tremendous recognition for a product that was launched only a few years ago.
Produced by its own in-house experts, the guides comprehensively cover occupational and environmental noise measurement terminology respectively, acting as invaluable references guides within both industries.As technology continues to progress, the most advanced sound level meters can now measure more than 100 different noise parameters at the same time and each parameter says something different about the type of noise it is measuring.
