Threats and economics typically drive defence markets. Throughout the COVID-19 crisis, the global defence sector has played an important and prominent role. While navigating a disruptive geopolitical landscape, governments face the significant challenge of an extended period of constrained finance alongside public support for increased spending in other sectors.
We fuse technical expertise and proud history of close association with defence organisations in Europe, the US, Canada, and Australia to bring a deep understanding of defence challenges and their solutions.
We deliver defence design and engineering services for Sea, Land, ISTAR and Air to get platforms into service, keep them safe for use and keep them capable and operational over many years. We provide innovative and technically advanced solutions that maximise operating capability.
We undertake the complete design and assurance of new naval platforms and introduce, execute and manage design changes to existing in-service naval vessels. We are leaders in the independent maritime design and through-life support in Europe and North America and undertake significant surface ship defence projects in Australia and Southeast Asia.
We pride ourselves on executing requirements both within budget and on time. We’re acclaimed for our depth of experience, broad technical expertise, long-term partnership management, impartial advice, and reliability.
Our in-depth knowledge of the defence environment enables us to apply cutting-edge thinking and technology solutions to complex defence projects. Not being directly involved in manufacturing or construction gives us an independent view across all activities.
We’re recognised as the world’s leading independent submarine specialists. Our highly qualified and experienced submarine designers and engineers support the complete life cycle of conventional and nuclear submarines from concept designs to safe disposal.
Our specialist design and engineering expertise help you make critical decisions about new submarines as early as possible in the procurement programme, ensuring that plans are suitable for construction within the available technology and budget.
We procure innovative and effective submarines that operate safely at sea throughout their working lives. We’ve provided extensive submarine design and engineering expertise to national defence agencies and significant contractors worldwide, including the UK, US, Canada, Australia, and South Korea.
Shrinking budgets mean that many naval authorities are challenged to keep older submarine fleets in operation beyond the period for which they were initially designed. Our thorough knowledge of submarine lifecycles means that we can assess how to extend their lives in the process and help decommission and dispose of them safely when required.
We provide safety and environmental support to aviation design organisations/authorities, manufacturers, regulators/policymakers, duty holders, managers, and operators across the whole lifecycle of airborne assets.
Our work with joint forces initiatives sees us applying management and technical consultancy to shape, optimise and assure your portfolios, programmes, and projects.
We help you realise benefit at all stages of the life cycle. Our success comes from taking an end to end view of the supply and support chain so that solutions are streamlined and cost effective through life.
Administrations face numerous challenges, including the need for ‘better for less’, transparency, data security, increasing digital access, and constant change, whether local, national or global.
We deliver a wide range of complex engineering and design solutions with a heritage spanning defence organisations in Europe, the US, Canada, and the Pacific and a deep understanding of current challenges.
Our knowledge of submarine design, availability and reliability, enables efficient solutions to complex problems.
The existing skills base within the defence sector can play a vital role in the zero-carbon agenda. We can help you prepare and adapt to the impacts of climate change.
As emerging leaders in the field of climate change resilience and adaptation, we work across a broad range of sectors, including state and local government agencies, critical infrastructure, finance, health, defence, and security.
The ability to accurately monitor the performance and impact of abandoned or deteriorating assets is essential during their decommissioning.
We can help you successfully meet the requirements of environmental permits and, in doing so, the needs of regulators.
We cover project management, front end engineering design (FEED), detailed design, construction, and operation, supporting you at every stage.
