Niteworks was established by the Ministry of Defence (MOD) to make better, faster and more informed decisions on complex issues through a partnership between MOD, industry and academia.
The Niteworks partnership is based on a commercial model that facilitates collaboration, innovation and acceleration of acquisition. The partnership consists of the major defence companies, a diverse community of small and medium sized enterprises and a range of technology specialists together with the MOD and the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl).
Niteworks adopts a systems approach and works at all levels, including capability, enterprise, system-of-systems and system. Niteworks provides support across all areas of the defence operating model.
Niteworks has particular areas of strength that include:
- Evidence generation using experimentation and analysis
- Provision of impartial advice on solution options and requirements articulation
- Practical innovation using capability concept demonstrations
What we do
We work across the MOD and industry to analyse problems, examine options and de-risk requirements, helping the MOD to make better, faster and more informed decisions.
Impartiality, scalability and agility are key components of Niteworks. We operate in a way that enables the MOD to access a range of expertise without individual company bias.
By using the breadth of our partnership, we are able to ensure that our projects remain free from partial commercial considerations. Our MOD-approved flexible and proven contracting mechanism makes the right collaboration – with the right expertise – easy.
