We’re also delivering a sea-change in capability with the development of revolutionary new technology like Shared Infrastructure, which will establish a common shared architecture across all Royal Navy warships and allow all software, from navigation to sonar, to be accessed from a single console.
The integration of these complex platforms, their systems and subsequent support of vessels in service require people with unique expertise, including combat systems engineers, software and systems engineers as well as hardware and network experts.
