A better future for all

By actively addressing these areas, we aim to contribute to greener, more sustainable defence and calibration industries.


Responsible design, calibration, and sustainable operations

As a responsible manufacturer in defence system design and a calibration partner, we consider the entire product and service lifecycle – from end to end. Our focus on reducing and managing risk involves close collaboration across procurement, compliance, and risk teams, ensuring an efficient and effective approach to due diligence and third-party risk management.


Sustainability and ESG

Understanding the importance of ESG and sustainability to our stakeholders, employees, and the defence and calibration industries as a whole, we are dedicated to creating sustainable value and contributing to the future of both sectors. We recognise our responsibility to provide a best-in-class service and product quality, keeping equipment in service for longer and maintaining a cutting-edge workforce.


Retrofitting and maintenance

In our defence system design, we breathe new life into very-low frequency communications equipment through retrofitting and offer robust maintenance services, ensuring our customers receive the very best support to keep their operations running smoothly.
