As the rise in security threats and military expenses continue to increase, aerospace and defence industry budgets look set to remain stable. With a greater focus on the application of cloud technology and inventory management reviews taking place, the opportunities to deliver reliable, cost-effective and innovative solutions are vast. With our experience within the aerospace and defence market, we understand the unique challenges that you face. We help you design custom solutions that are guaranteed to provide high-quality performance in the most demanding of environments meeting Mil to EMI standards. We can also support projects of magnetic components within the space market thanks to our 35 years’ experience and are an ESA certified manufacturer. Air forces, armies and navies require equipment that is compact, robust, reliable and manoeuvrable and our design-led approach ensures these expectations are achieved.
Components designed specifically for military use are focused on sustainability to alleviate the need for logistically difficult replacement. The changing landscape of conflict means that our advanced technological approach is essential to support innovation within the defence market. We provide a seamless service from concept to prototype to installation, ensuring that you have the solution needed to achieve your goals, no matter how complex. Our engineers support your investment throughout the lifecycle of your application and can assist in managing End of Life (EOL) parts used in your systems. We will also advise you regarding last-time buys, migration, or redesign ensuring that you always remain in total control of your investment.
Enhancing technological solutions for aerospace and defence
There are endless possibilities for how we can help our customers develop solutions that enhance our shared technological future. Here are just a few.
Marine communication systems
We develop systems designed for demanding, harsh environments. Military applications require extremely accurate, shock-resistant guidance and navigation systems. Similarly, satellite communications systems need precision tilt sensors to stabilise moving platforms. Using our design-led approach and our innovation, we can design a marine communication system that fully meets your complex needs.
Strategic Asset Protection (SAP)
Our expertise in strategic asset protection, coupled with the latest thermo imaging technology means that we can offer solutions to meet your bespoke needs. From border control to perimeter surveillance, our designs will support you to keep your most valuable assets safe and secure. Our extensive product portfolio delivers high-quality, cost effective solutions and enables you to see the unseen.
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs)
We support the aerospace and defence industry to expand your capabilities across the UAV market. UAVs provide a low-cost alternative to manned aircraft, gathering intelligence, surveillance and target recognition. We deliver increasingly smarter technology and support you to navigate the complexities of choosing the right components for such a demanding application.
Ground based telemetry systems
We have developed the expertise necessary to manufacture complex, ground-based telemetry and tracking systems capable of meeting your most demanding applications. Our complete turnkey systems are unique in the industry. Our systems gather and process critical information aboard spacecraft, aircraft, missiles, guided weapons, targets, and UAVs. Constructed to function under severe conditions our equipment also records your data, transmits it to receiving stations and then processes and displays it where you need it.
Utilising our expertise in both power supply and connectivity enables us to design and produce strong, effective radar jammers. Our top of the range RF technology has been used to develop customised remote jammers that work effectively in all weather conditions with a long lifecycle.
Specialist military vehicles
We provide rugged display solutions for specialist military vehicles. Our high performing systems provide you with the quality and features required for long-term deployment in demanding environments and applications such as military vehicle control and C4iSR. Our systems are designed to cover all types of display requirements, whether that be waterproof, shock-resistant over rough terrain and anti-glare, we have a solution to support your complex needs.
Custom laser rangefinders
We use leading edge technology to design and manufacture custom laser solutions for your bespoke requirements. Our use of diode lasers and optics enables us to deliver high quality, advanced technology products such as laser range finders and optics. We develop custom built; high performance solutions designed to produce a powerful military-standard range finder.
Extreme power supplies
Submarine equipment and high-density radar systems require extremely accurate and stable power supplies that you probably want to develop in-house. We can support this choice helping you to develop using the right magnetic components. Our approach allows you to get the best parts for the power supply from only one source.
When it comes to developing custom solutions for tomorrow's technologies, we trust our approach to deliver the best possible outcome.
Our engineers will skilfully guide you through each stage of your project, working with you to understand and identify a solution that meets your technical and commercial needs before designing and integrating your solution.
