Focused System Development

Complex procurement and technical development programmes surrounding robotics and aviation are some of the most demanding areas to work in.

Our staff have extensive knowledge in the initiation and delivery of large scale multi-million-pound programmes, alongside a track record of delivering to budget against stringent timescales.

We believe that combining our practical and executive knowledge in the field, to view our systems from three key perspectives – the end user, the independent assessor, and the prime contractor – enables us to offer our clients unbiased advice and support to optimise programmes, reduce risk, and guarantee cost savings.

Working with partners we will deliver a capability solution, not just an air vehicle.
