Thales BSCS Award Ceremony

Development

Advancements of concepts through mechanical engineering to readiness for manufacture.

 

Testing

Iterative testing loops supported by simulation analysis to optimise performance.

 

Manufacture

Early prototype builds through field trials to high volume assembly & manufacture.

We are delighted to have delivered the first of 6 systems to the UK MOD. Working together with a strong UK supply chain - including SMEs - has been key to its success. The BSCS system has also been designed for civil applications such as the protection of major sporting events and large scale public gatherings and I look forward to seeing it develop a strong export pedigree in due course
