BAE Systems has been named as one of the UK’s top patent filers in a report on Robotics and Autonomous Systems compiled by the UK Government’s Intellectual Property Office.
The UK Government has identified "Eight Great Technologies" as instrumental in propelling the UK to future growth, amongst them the field of robotics and autonomous systems. At BAE Systems, our focus on areas such as advanced technology manufacturing and unmanned air systems have required numerous patent applications which in turn can be used as a valuable measure of our innovation activity.


The report found that patenting in the area of robotics and autonomous systems has grown significantly over a ten year period exceeding general growth in patenting by a considerable margin. The report can be read in full here.
