Specialist Engineering & Design

Specialist Engineering & Design

The design of complex technological systems involve many engineering disciplines, some of which are niche specialist disciplines that requires deep and broad knowledge that are difficult to sustain within an organisation. These specialist engineering skills are crucial to designing a system that will function within its intended environment and the complex interactions with the users and environment.

These design considerations need to be considered at the conception of the design, culminating in the tests that will be used to verify that the requirements have been met. Our people understand the specialist engineering domains. From human factors and aviation psychology through to electromagnetic interference and satellite communication link design, our people bring a wealth of experience across multiple projects to help them solve our customer’s problems.

With our global presence, we bring the best specialist engineering and design expertise to our customers. Whether it is the latest wide band satellite communications system or the latest unmanned rail technology, we are able to leverage our skills to help deliver our customer’s project.

Our capabilities include:

  • Human Factors and Psychology
  • Electromagnetic Compatibility and Interference
  • Logistics Support Analysis
  • Reliability and Maintainability
