With a Defence and Security market that is changing rapidly, military customers around the world are looking to deliver a step-change in the pace of force generation against a backdrop of continuing fiscal pressures and a rapidly evolving threat landscape

Threats are increasing and becoming more sophisticated, making for a highly complex operational environment that Governments must plan, resource, test and train for. New technology and systems need to be put into the hands of war-fighters quicker with military systems getting more complex, often building on innovation in the civilian world.

We strongly believe that delivering effective Defence Capability that is safe to operate and performs as expected requires Test & Evaluation (T&E) to represent the environment and threat that an asset or capability could be exposed to.

Thanks to our delivery of T&E services in the UK, including through our unique 25-year Ministry of Defence Long Term Partnering Agreement, and in our overseas markets, we have built up extensive experience across the breadth of T&E services. This starts with understanding the questions our customers are looking to address and the risks they are seeking to mitigate to understand what the requirement for evaluation is. This enables us to consider what the most appropriate evaluation technique is whether that be modelling & simulation or a live trial. Across modelling & simulation and live evaluation, our services include T&E capability design, development and operation, provision of representative threats, trials design, trials delivery and data evaluation & analysis. We combine access to a diverse set of T&E capabilities, including ranges and facilities, with cross-disciplinary scientific and engineering expertise, operational know-how and broad-ranging global partnerships. As a system-agnostic technology and engineering company with deep roots into the military, we offer a unique blend of operational ethos, technical capability and a collaborative mind set.
