Human Protection & Performance

We undertake research, test and evaluation, and provide guidance and advice to protect personnel, maximise survival, enhance personnel performance, minimise impact of stressors, and inform design.

For example, we provide hearing protection for aircrew that is compliant with the Control of Noise at Work Regulations, while ensuring allowable flying hours meet operational needs.  

Ensuring human factors are at the centre of complex systems design results in more effective and efficient outcomes and minimises human error. We have deep expertise and a breadth of capability across disciplines, from conceptualising and de-risking immersive training environments to enhancing human performance in high risk environments. 

Our Human Performance teams complement training through an understanding of the human component, from personnel to behavioural analysis, utilising consultancy, analytical and experimental techniques for individual and team performance in defence and non-defence domains. 

We are major award winners for our innovation in distributed team training that adapts to changing operational needs, and are delivering training to RAF pilots engaged in ground attack missions alongside British Army forward air controllers and artillery personnel.
