Training needs analysis and services: analysis, course design and evaluation and delivery of training to relevant standards.
Enterprise Architecture and Programme/Project Assurance: We have the experience and tools to implement a structured and tailored approach to complex problem solving, decision making and capability design.
Only when you consider the totality of a complex system can you be sure you have identified and defined all potential sources of technical risk, cost increase or time delay.
Our Systems Engineering expertise enables us to deliver independent complex engineering design capabilities for UK and international defense customers.
Realizing a design or providing in-service through life support cannot happen without a structured and managed delivery programme.
We provide Through-Life Support, or ‘Integrated Logistics Support’ across a range of engineering and technical domains to support pre and post-delivery logistics for new or modified assets.
