Much of the creativity drew on the company’s experience in medical ultrasound.
In 2002, Intec acquired Specialty Engineering Associates (SEA), an innovator of ultrasonic devices and measurement instruments. The company was renamed Onda, which translates to “wave” in Latin, representating the focus on ultrasound technologies.
Onda established a partnership with NTR Systems in 2003. A family of ultrasonic measurement instruments was added to broaden the product portfolio. Onda began to reach its vision of becoming a one-stop shop for ultrasound measurements.
In 2005, Onda vertically integrated a core capability by building a best-in-class calibration laboratory to offer in-house acoustic calibrations of hydrophone and other instruments.
By 2010, Onda celebrated a milestone by shipping its 2,000th hydrophone. Onda hydrophones have served various applications in medical and industrial applications in over 30 countries.
