Helping defence forces around the world to establish leaner, fitter and “smarter” military fleet operations.

We have been at the forefront of leading-edge industry developments for decades, dating back to our pioneering pumps and engine controls for the Whittle jet engine. 

Today, our cutting edge engine systems, actuation controls and data services enable military operators to manage complex equipment, predict equipment failures, improve overall maintenance and increase engine availability across an entire fleet.

Our systems and products have been utilised on a range of aircraft, including transport, unmanned and training planes as well as multi-role fighters. 

Through this experience we have developed the capability to increase performance and mission availability, while also helping to reduce cost and risk - all without compromising on safety and effectiveness.
