A new dawn of innovation for government technology is emerging that holds vast potential for all areas of the public sector – especially those critical to national security.

We partner with our US government clients to ensure that the latest state-of-the-art solutions and engineering techniques are deployed to deliver rapid, innovative capabilities. With a world-class track record of providing government consulting and breakthrough technology for US clients, our team in Boston is ready to deliver the most complex projects at rapid pace.  

Our specialties

Sensing, fusion and detection systems

Government solutions are limited by access to data and without ultra-reliable low powered sensors these assets are unable to gain the upper hand in functionality, geolocation, and low latency communications.

Our government consulting and technology team ensures you have the latest technology and sensor fusion techniques, plus state-of-the art engineering to tackle data processing requirements and develop ultra-low power sensors for adverse, critical conditions.

We also combine extensive knowledge of advanced DSP architectures and software defined radios (SDRs) to enable highly flexible and optimized communication systems. 

Communications systems

Communication systems ensure successful government operations but must meet emerging market requirements such as enhanced resilience and security, all within stringent size, weight and power constraints.

We meet these demands with expertise ranging from integrating wireless standards into existing platforms to the complete design of customized terrestrial or satellite communications systems. We bring decades of experience in developing radio systems, including the world’s densest private LTE network, the Iridium satellite network, and the world’s largest commercial airborne antenna.  

AI and analytics 

Improved sensor technology means more data for government systems but processing massive amounts of data demands the right algorithms.

Our skills in AI, data science, business analysis and system implementation will help you to set the foundation for AI-based government solutions and transform your organization with system enhancements.  

Tracking and location

Accurate positioning and location in real-time is a core requirement for many government systems operating within global and regional theaters.

We use the latest advances in sensor technology, algorithms, connectivity and digital systems to deliver next-generation government solutions with improved accuracy, availability, and coverage. These range from individual components and enhancements to end-to-end operational systems. 

We can help you achieve the seemingly impossible

Secure systems

Connected systems are now enmeshed into our everyday lives and environments and it's vital we uphold the highest safety and security standards.

Our security assessment, vulnerability analysis and technology solution expertise ensure maximum resilience, while our robust system design procedures ensure the latest digital security technologies are properly implemented.  

Technology road mapping and strategic consultancy

Our deep understanding of technology, as well as both the security and consumer markets, enables us to provide timely, actionable government consulting on a strategic and tactical level. We have a proven track record of identifying and selecting the right technologies and transferring commercial technology know-how into fast-track government solutions.

Why work with our Government technology team?

Emerging technologies present both opportunities and challenges to existing capabilities. But thanks to our unique blend of deep technology and domain experience, we produce innovative solutions that mitigate threats – and deliver operational benefit to users and senior management alike.

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 rapid prototyping, through to full system development, manufacture, deployment, and in-service support.

Government technology development facilities 

Anechoic test chamber (Stargate Satimo)

Anechoic test chamber

Our custom anechoic radio and antenna test chamber is a highly sophisticated 5m cube. Inside, we carry out automated three-dimensional measurement and visualization of wireless device behavior and test body-worn technology using body phantoms or real live test subjects. This helps us to understand and optimize real-word RF performance of products such as smart implants (including implanted telemetry), connected drug delivery devices and wearables.

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 enables us to test complex software at scale, with or without hardware in the loop, to identify problems earlier and fix them faster. It 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 one 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.

 

It enables 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.

Digital Greenhouse

Digital Greenhouse

The Digital Greenhouse is our purpose-built AI research facility, specifically designed to discover, develop, and test machine learning approaches in a fast, secure environment. The facility features an NVIDIA DGX-1 Deep Learning Supercomputer, a bank of machine learning computers, petabyte local storage, and many teraflops of dedicated compute power.

UX-design-studios

UX design studios

Equipped for creative, collaborative thinking, we use our UX design spaces to aggregate research data, user stories and create design concepts that remain visible for the duration of the project. Each design studio allows our project teams to develop ideas and explore designs while 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 rapidly build short product runs to an extremely high quality. We can build our own PCBAs using industrial representative equipment and ensure manufacturability 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.
