Submarine Propulsion Design

We assess and support the development of submarine designs, designs for unmanned underwater vehicles (UUVs) and propulsor designs from concept through to end of life, providing an understanding of safety, performance, cost and risk.

UK Submarine

Through carrying out research, testing and trials of physical and numerical models at our extensive UK-based facilities we evaluate designs to assess and optimise their hydrodynamic and hydro-acoustic performance.

As well as supporting submarine and propulsor concept development, submarine safety and operational guidance we provide rapid response services for investigating submarine incidents and recovery.
