Stealth Design and Optimisation


Strategic support early in the pre-acceptance stage helps navies and naval constructors make the right decisions from the very start of the process. Acting as a trusted advisor through the pre-concept, concept and design phases, we make sure that new ships and submarines are built to signature requirements.

Astute Class Submarine

We write specifications that ensure stealth performance targets are considered and met, covering all types of signature: Radar Cross Section (RCS), acoustics, electromagnetics, infrared, hydro acoustics and Target Echo Strength (TES).

Our services span whole platform signature assurance, stealth design and manufacture, signature predictions, component signature measurement, stealth R&D and stealth management systems.
