Payload Integration

Military and professional craft are inevitably fitted with and deploy a wide range of specialist equipment and payloads. 

It is essential that these payload items are integrated into the craft at the design stage as they often have significant implications for weight and performance, stability, structural foundations, electrical load, and EMC and RADHAZ. 

We have proven capability of integrating a wide range of systems and payloads into small craft, including;

  • Manually-operated Weapon Systems
  • Remote Weapon Stations
  • Surveillance and Fire Control Systems
  • Military Navigation Systems
  • Military Communication Systems
  • Specialist Payloads
