A data-driven intelligence business co-founded by University of Southampton Aeronautics graduates has been recognised with an esteemed Queen’s Award for Enterprise.

Tonic Analytics, which is based in the University of Southampton Science Park, has been honoured for its excellence in international trade.

The business was co-founded just five years ago by Aeronautics alumni Andy Heather and Rob Horabin, together with Plymouth graduate Andy Dollin.

Tonic Analytics blends a wide range of data with predictive analysis to tackle some of society’s biggest challenges. Over six billion new data points are analysed every day to save lives on road networks, help tackle crime, reduce airline delays and optimise offshore energy production.

The company is currently working on projects that include monitoring compliance with the UK’s COVID-19 lockdown and exploring how best to manage the effects of easing restrictions.

The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are the most prestigious awards to recognise and celebrate business excellence in the UK.
