ADV Integrity’s passion is to help people succeed in effectively using technology.






  • In-service, continued monitoring

  • Full-loading – in the field in a full, monitored state

  • Taking it to the field in a limited state

  • Full-scale testing – in the lab testing of potential “real-life usage”

  • Reliability testing – at this stage, is it worth continuing to TRL 4

  • Lab mock-up testing of the product – low level testing

  • Proof of Concept – a low level analysis of the technology and market study.

  • An innovator has an idea and believes that it could be beneficial to the operator. ADV will work with the innovator / technology company to determine if there is an interest and begin the process that follows.
