A Tailored Solution
We pride ourselves on taking the time to fully understand your requirements. Independent of mission system and platform, we only work with the most suitable, carefully-selected partners to offer a cost-effective, fit-for-purpose solution that wholly satisfies your needs.
Our experienced engineers draw on their specialist expertise to assess the aerodynamic, structural, systems safety and performance implications of the proposal we present to you. Involving you in every stage of the design, integration and certification process, we provide a bespoke solution that is fully integrated and ready to fly.
We can supply ground stations to work with your upgraded aircraft and offer through-life support arrangements. We provide modifications for a multitude of roles, including: ISR; communications relays; search and rescue; maritime and border patrol; command and control; as well as medevac and cargo conversions. With this breadth and depth of capability on offer, no wonder Special Projects is one of the fastest-expanding areas of our business.
Our award-winning work on the BAe 146-200 QC (Quick Change) conversion from commercial to military configuration for the UK Ministry of Defence, is a prime example of our Special Projects capability in action. This project involved fuel tank inerting and the installation of flight deck armour and defensive aids (LAIRCM – Large Aircraft Infra-Red Counter Measures). We improved the communications systems by installing HF and UHF radio and SATCOM, upgraded the air conditioning and installed a fire protection system in the luggage bay. A Successor Identification Friend or Foe (SIFF) system was also installed. We delivered the project in response to an Urgent Operational Requirement (UOR) on time and on budget, and the aircraft are now in service with RAF 32 (The Royal) Squadron.
You can trust us to deliver the upgrade you need, when you need it.
