About ISL...

[Home | Contents & What's New | About | Products | Services | Technical Support | Links | Sales]

Inspection Software was established in June 1992 to develop software for inspection engineering projects. We are based in Swansea, South Wales, about 200 miles west of London, UK.

We've been developing software for in-house projects since the mid 1970's, but in 1992 ISL was established as an independent software company. Our core development language is Visual Basic 6, supported with Access database components.  Our applications run on Windows platforms.

Our industrial inspection experience spans more than five decades of NDT / NDE technologies including ultrasonics, eddy currents, computerised systems, electronics, electro-mechanics, data-acquisition, and software development. We also have first-hand knowledge of most industrial sectors including oil, gas, power, nuclear, offshore, topside and underwater. In 1992 we established Inspection Software to combine these experiences to form a unique source of software development for the specialised needs of the inspection industry.

We have a global trading record. Our products are in use in UK, Europe, North America, Scandinavia, Australasia, Middle East and the Far East. In UK our software has been adopted by the major power generation utilities, and by many of their service contractors.

The Directors...

Doug Breeze, BA, IEng, MInstNDT, Managing Director, and Lesley Breeze, Director and Company Secretary.

The DirectorsDoug has more than five decades of industrial inspection experience in the technical services sector and in managing Inspection Software. He started as an NDT apprentice with Unit Inspection Company, Swansea in 1961, and was ultimately appointed Manager of their Technology Centre.

He has been responsible for development of several innovative projects that were subsequently introduced commercially into the NDT community. In 1988 he left Unit to start a 4-year term in Saudi Arabia and the GCC states, returning to UK in 1992 to form the present company. Whilst in Saudi he developed the C-Map corrosion mapping software for the Vetco Floor Inspection Tool (FiT). C-Map performed the world's first on-line colour mapping of underfloor corrosion at Madinat-Al-Jubail, Saudi Arabia, in March 1990, and which has been the inspiration for several subsequent ISL products.

Doug specialised in advanced inspection methods, particularly ultrasonics, including automated and computerised systems, and more recently with MFL systems. He held CSWIP 3.6 ultrasonics and ASNT Level III ultrasonics for around 15 years each, and was the UK representative on the Eurotest Technical Committee for several years. He has travelled widely in many countries and has experience of many industrial sectors including oil, gas, power, nuclear inspection, and offshore projects both topside and underwater. He earned a BA degree from the Open University in 1979, and is an Incorporated Engineer with the British Engineering Council. He is a member of the British Institute of NDT. He is also a licenced but inactive radio ham, call-sign GW3TOL.

His private interests include motor racing, electronics, and (armchair) politics, whilst Lesley brings a much-needed element of order, sanity and efficiency into the office
