Maritime Stealth

Ohio Class Submarine

To ensure in-service ships and submarines remain fit for purpose we test and assess their current detectability and find ways to optimise their stealth characteristics.

Component level measurements give a clear picture of how a signature is composed, and its operational impact. Where we find stealth defects, we recommend and apply corrective measures that get the vessel back into service quickly and reduce lifetime risk and cost.

Our signature measurement facilities are used by navies and naval constructors around the world, including the UK Royal Navy and MOD. We also provide stealth management training for on-board staff and senior staff who direct operations.
