Our specialisms


Tracking & location

Accurate positioning and location is a core requirement for many systems operating within a global, regional or personal environment – both in real time and non-real time.

We use the latest advances in sensor technology, algorithms and connectivity to deliver next-generation solutions with improved accuracy, availability and coverage.

We provide solutions for our clients, from individual components and enhancements to full turn-key, end-to-end operational systems. 

Communications systems

While connectivity is becoming ubiquitous in many devices and applications, it poses distinct challenges for the defence and security sector. This market demands communications systems with enhanced integrity, availability and security, while in many cases also operating at low power from a ruggedised platform.

With one of the world’s largest independent wireless development capabilities, we are ideally placed to meet these demands, from integrating wireless standards into existing products and platforms to the complete design of bespoke terrestrial or satellite communications systems. 

Technology futures & strategic consultancy

Identifying technology threats and opportunities is important in any business, but critical to maintaining capabilities and creating operational advantage in defence and security.

With our deep understanding of technology as well as both the security and mainstream markets, we provide timely, actionable advice on a strategic and tactical level. We have a proven track record in identifying and selecting the right technologies and transferring commercial technology know-how into fast-track developments. 

Data science

As gathering data becomes ever easier and more widespread, extracting information of value from this mass of information becomes ever more challenging.

We have the requisite skills in data science, business analysis, algorithm design and system implementation to pose the correct questions and extract the required meaning from your data, whether your goal is to make predictions, improve sensor performance or model system behaviours. 

Interested in joining us?

Sensing & detection systems

Advanced sensing and detection are at the heart of many defensive systems. We have a wealth of experience in both developing sensor systems from first principles and optimising commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) systems.

We work across the majority of sensing technologies, such as optical and imaging (including machine vision systems), RF and magnetic, and chemistry-based, while meeting the challenges of low size, weight and power for use in a rugged environment. 

How we work


Emerging technologies present both opportunities and challenges to existing capabilities. Our combination of deep technology and domain experience produces innovative solutions that mitigate threats and deliver operational benefit to both users and senior management.

Our world-class engineers, scientists and consultants provide everything from actionable insight into technology trends, user-driven and business-driven requirements capture, concept generation and proof-of-concept prototyping, through to full system development, manufacture, deployment and in-service support.

Satimo Stargate 64 (무반향 라디오 및 안테나 테스트 챔버)
 

Satimo Stargate 64 (무반향 라디오 및 안테나 테스트 챔버)

Satimo Stargate 64는 유럽의 몇 안되는 무반향(anechoic) 라디오 안테나 시험 챔버 중 하나입니다. 이 6m 길이의 무반향 챔버에서는 무선 장치 작동에 대한 3D 자동 측정 및 시각화가 가능하며, 인체 모형 또는 실제 살아 있는 시험 대상을 통해 신체 착용 기술을 테스트할 수 있습니다. 이 덕분에 캠브리지 컨설턴트는 스마트 임플란트 (삽입형 원격측정장치 포함), 휴대용 약물 전달 기기 및 웨어러블 기기가 실제 사용 환경 내에서 갖는  RF 성능을 이해하고 최적화할 수 있습니다. 

Facility Continuous-integration software
 

Scalable software test facility

Continuous integration (CI) is central to building and delivering high-quality software. Our virtualised CI test facility – codenamed Smokey – enables us to test complex software at scale, with or without hardware in the loop, to identify problems earlier and fix them faster. Smokey provides a clean, isolated virtual build environment, pre-loaded with industry-leading tools such as Coverity static analysis. CI testing is integrated with our version control, enabling every software revision to be automatically built, tested on real hardware and analysed.

Data, development & test labs
 

Data, development & test labs

With 1 petabyte local storage and specialised hardware for telecoms chassis design, machine learning development and more, this facility allows us to develop, test and operate new cloud-ready digital services rapidly in a secure environment, enabling rapid end-to-end prototyping and experimentation of sensitive concepts. We work across the full spectrum of cloud service providers, supporting both public and private infrastructures.

디지털 그린하우스
 

디지털 그린하우스

디지털 그린하우스는 빠르고 안정적인 환경에서 머신 러닝 방법을 발견, 개발 및 시험하기위한 목적으로 특수 설계된  AI 연구 시설입니다. 디지털 그린하우스는 NVIDIA의 DGX-1 딥러닝 슈퍼 컴퓨터와 머신 러닝 컴퓨터, 페타바이트 규모의 로컬 스토리지, 그리고 다수의 테라플롭 전산 처리 역량을 갖추고 있습니다. 

UX-design-studios
 

UX design studios

Equipped with whiteboards, marker pens and acres of Post-it notes, we use these spaces to aggregate research data, user stories and create design concepts and keep them visible for the duration of the project. Each design studio allows our project teams to develop ideas and collaborate on designs whilst preserving client confidentiality.

Electronic production
 

Electronic production

Our flexible, responsive and agile manufacturing facilities are ideally suited to electronic and electromechanical product builds, enabling us to very quickly set up short product runs built to an extremely high quality. We can build our own PCBAs using industrial representative equipment and ensure manufacture-ability during design. Having our own EPD facility is also extremely helpful in development, driving out DfX activities in eCAD, and feeding test results back into the design process from an early stage.

We can help you achieve the seemingly impossible

Why it’s time to start turning quantum sensing theory into real-world commercial advantage

6th August 2020

Quantum theory is about probability. Erwin Schrödinger illustrated this with his famous thought experiment: trap a cat in a box with a randomly fatal device and you would not know whether it is dead or alive.
