Our customers include those responsible for the safe in-service operation of military aircraft and airfield assets, and research into future technology/capability. We have worked for both commercial and defence aerospace customers, on both rotary and fixed wing aircraft, radar systems and Aeronautical Ground Lighting (AGL) systems. By combining our aviation knowledge with capabilities in the maritime domain, we are ideally positioned to provide safety assessment of ship/air interface issues, providing safety assurance for the operation of rotary aircraft from a variety of naval and commercial platforms.
Our technical expertise is founded upon in-depth knowledge of aviation regulation. We have a detailed understanding of the safety requirements of the UK Military Aviation Authority (MAA) regulations and have provided training to the MAA on Safety Management Systems (SMS). Through our close relationships with specialist airworthiness providers, we can provide holistic safety and airworthiness services, ensuring safety and regulatory compliance in accordance with the requirements of the airworthiness authorities.
In today's challenging defence market, the ability to design, manufacture and support complex defence equipment, systems and platforms, is also paramount. Solutions must provide through-life value for money, be affordable and deliver the capability to counter current and future threats. We work with industry teams to develop tailored solutions, which ensure Availability, Reliability and Maintainability (AR&M) and Supportability are considered effectively and efficiently during the design and development phases. As products are prepared to enter service, we work with clients to develop and put in place the most cost effective support solution based on the Supportability analysis conducted during the design, development and manufacturing phases.
