About Us

BAE Systems provides some of the world’s most advanced, technology-led Defence, aerospace and security solutions and employs a skilled workforce of some 83,400 people in over 40 countries.
Working with customers and local partners, we develop technology that helps to save lives, protect borders and people, strengthen nations, and keep critical information and infrastructure secure.
Our programmes help drive economic growth through vibrant local supply chains, the transfer of technology and skills, investment in education and training, including apprenticeships, and graduate opportunities for the next generation of highly skilled engineers. BAE Systems also sustains research and technology funding through both a substantial commitment to investment of our own funded Research and Development expenditure and through the extensive high-technology activities funded by customers.
We do more than just export proven technology and essential support systems to help international customers protect and strengthen their defence, aerospace and security capabilities. We transfer technology and skills to help build local capabilities and drive economic development. That’s why we’re a trusted long-term partner to governments and commercial organisations around the world.
