Our Modifications team supports UK military helicopters as well as fixed wing and UAS fleets by introducing new technology to help protect the UK and our Armed Forces from real world threats. The team designs, prototypes, manufactures and assures industry standard aircraft modifications in support of urgent operational and safety requirements, using modern techniques including 3D scanning, 3D printing, and integrated CAD/CAM. Examples include introducing new communications, navigation, avionics, proximity alert systems and adapting role equipment fits, such as medical casualty evacuation capability.
