Tech Track 100

When Nottingham University scientists needed a computer to track one billion dark-matter and gas particles to make one of the most detailed simulations of the universe, they turned to this Warwick company. Together with Sun Microsystems, Concurrent Thinking built a £1.3m system capable of doing 3,000 billion calculations a second, a speed facilitated by its debugging software. Headed by Michael Rudgyard, the company sells its systems to Rolls-Royce, Schlumberger and some British universities. Its sales have risen 97% a year from £792,000 in 2002 to £3.1m in 2004.
