Transforming remote, autonomous, uncrewed missions in the underwater battlespace
Capable, modern, effective. Our industry-trusted portfolio of undersea navigation, positioning, communication and imaging technologies provide naval forces with enhanced situational awareness across the underwater domain.
We deliver competitive advantage to navies and governments facing new, and increasingly capable underwater adversaries. With long endurance, wide payload capabilities and over-the-horizon control now a reality, uncrewed maritime systems are gearing up to replace expensive manned platforms, remove sailors from the frontline all the while improving mission outcomes. But to be effective in their mission they require effective command and control for the world’s most unforgiving environment, our oceans. That’s where we come in.
You’ll also find our solutions in service protecting critical national infrastructure, commercial ports, waterside facilities and private yachts from underwater threats. Our network-enabled systems are scalable and designed to work alone or integrated with above-water systems to close any gap in your surveillance capability. All backed by our global support.
Our solutions span a wide range of battlespace and security missions
Mission ready, whatever the mission
Efficient and cost-effective procurement
We understand the underwater domain but we also understand how to contract, design, manufacture, deliver and support products economically. The result? Research and procurement budgets reach further, missions are completed in less time and naval forces are equipped to protect their advantage in the underwater battlespace.
Integrated and uncrewed
Our navigation, communications and tracking technology, is deployed across seafloor ranges, on autonomous underwater and surface systems, and a range of specialist ships that include hydrographic, MCM and salvage and submarine rescue vessels. We provide accurate reference positioning, reconnaissance imaging data and high bandwidth secure communication networks helping you to command your underwater forces over-the-horizon.
Your data delivered
Effective decision making in the future battlespace will depend on actionable insight delivered where and when commanders need it. Our seafloor sensors are able to covertly acquire, store, analyse and securely distribute data to underwater and surface assets, remaining deployed unattended for many years. The technology is field proven and changes the game.
