High-performance computing for a rapidly evolving battlespace

The nature of the battlespace is fast changing and requires swift adoption of new technology and greater procurement agility to find flexible solutions that can be fielded across a range of scenarios. In response to increasingly complex threat challenges, it is vital to maintain a ‘full spectrum’ capability across land, sea, and air, as well as AI, space, cyber and the creation of sensor-laden connected hardware capabilities.

Defence investment is increasing globally to enhance the lethality, precision and reach of weapons, communication range, and other support services to address new and quickly developing threats.

Field Deployed – Satellite Communications

The customer is a global leader in the defence sector, the largest defence supplier in Europe, and among the top 10 defence companies worldwide. It manufactures tactical and strategic airlifters, multi-role aerial tankers and advanced combat aircraft.

The customised container provided was to facilitate primary satellite communications in the very challenging environment of the Falklands. Whilst many services were enabled remotely; it was essential to offer an integrated solution providing a safe, dry and warm environment for engineers.
