Ambitious organisations are looking to the skies… setting their sights on new ways to communicate across the planet’s most challenging locations. Advanced satellites and unmanned aerial vehicles will propel those ambitions – and we are uniquely placed to help.

With an unrivalled, world-class track record in satellite, aviation and beyond line of sight drone systems, we are ready to deliver your complex aerospace breakthroughs at rapid pace. Our deeply-rooted expertise in communication, AI and secure systems unlocks commercial potential and opens new horizons of opportunity.

Our specialisms


End-to-end communications systems 

Iridium’s $3b NEXT satellite constellation was the largest technology upgrade ever to take place in space. It was underpinned by our decade-long contribution as core technology partner – and is indicative of our exceptional capabilities in the system design of non-terrestrial communication networks. From such truly global systems to the development of transceivers, gateway systems and service management platforms, our expertise is extensive.

What does this represent for you? A fast track to reliable, high-performance end-to-end communications systems with minimal risk. We can maximise your bandwidth efficiency while reducing costs to meet strict budgets.

Critical control beyond line of sight

We are experts in the design and development of critical control and Unmanned Traffic Management (UTM) systems that extend beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS). Our teams excel at this new frontier of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) service development. We’ll help you over the many hurdles of BVLOS operations to achieve innovative yet cost-effective, high availability systems. You’ll unlock valuable new UAV services such as surveillance, remote sensing and product delivery. Highly secure control systems will enable robust communication services for the most critical tasks.

Intelligent antennas

Our work is shaping the future of advanced beam forming antennas. In 2020, we announced a remarkable breakthrough: the world’s largest commercial airborne antenna, created to beam 5G connectivity from the stratosphere. Our team includes some of the world’s leading experts in intelligent antenna design. They’re ready to propel full-scale systems into low-cost, high-volume commercial production.

This is highly specialised, challenging engineering with vast potential. Beam steering gives non-terrestrial networks ubiquitous coverage – even when tracking fast moving objects like vehicles and aircraft. This technology delivers the intelligent connectivity that maximises data rates and reliability to unlock a host of innovative use cases.

Reducing SWaP in terminals

Our unique blend of in-house IP, silicon and device development expertise enables us to radically reduce the SWaP (size, weight and power) of terminal equipment. By targeting silicon for satellite, we can help you overcome the economic challenge of creating low-cost consumer terminal equipment.

For LEO operators, the market is ready to be seized – by serving low-cost broadband and IoT connectivity to transform communication for millions of people and businesses across the globe.

AI and data analytics

Gathering data is easy; the real challenge is extracting key information from the data and using this to drive value-creating insights. Our skills in AI, data science, business analysis and system implementation will help you achieve this and transform your organisation with system enhancements.

Our approach is geared to accelerate operational improvements – from automation of network management to enhanced customer services, improving link efficiency or achieving automation for tasks such as predicative maintenance.

Secure systems

Connected systems are now enmeshed into our everyday lives and environments. It’s vital we uphold the highest safety and security standards – to protect your communication systems, data and users from outside threats.

We have expert security assessment and technology solution knowhow to ensure maximum resilience. Our vulnerability analysis defines system security requirements to directly mitigate risks, while our robust system design procedures ensure the latest digital security technologies are properly implemented.

We can help you achieve the seemingly impossible

How we work


Our multidisciplined team will support you at every turn, from systems engineering and R&D to verification and test. A passion for excellence characterises every project, whether you need to develop a next-generation LEO service or create a breakthrough in UAVs to redefine your market. Our proven product development process and vast experience in developing resilient systems suit the most ambitious safety-critical projects down to the ground.
