It prides itself on offering its customers (mainly Ministry’s of Defence as well as some non-MOD customers) world-class expertise in advice, services (particularly test and evaluation) and innovative technology-based products. It has a global staff of 6,000 in 85 offices around the UK, the US, Canada, Belgium, Germany, and Australia, as well as a new satellite office in Malaysia and a joint venture in the Middle East.
