Hawk-Eye managing director Steve Carter believes its goal-line technology is on course to be licensed by FIFA, but would not speculate on its use in the Premier League next season.
The British company and German-Danish firm GoalRef are vying to be approved as authorised suppliers of goal-line technology and were chosen for the next testing phase by the International Football Association Board (IFAB).
Asked if it was feasible to have it in place for the start of the 2012/13 season, he said: "It is impossible for me to say right now. You would have to survey the grounds and there would be a lot of logistical things that we would need to go through and at the moment I don't have that information."
