Innovation Lab

It's not just security. It's defence
Our mission at BAE Systems is to secure and defend the connected world. With far reaching trends such as mobility, automation, globalisation and Internet of Things driving rapid and significant change, we know how important it is to always look to the future.
The Innovation Lab is where we explore the impact of the technological, social, and economic trends that are driving change, and where we collaborate with our Innovation Partners to ensure that we’re able to secure and defend the connected world of tomorrow.

Our Focus

We focus on a number of arenas where we see substantial and disruptive change to sectors. A number of elements drive this, ranging from technological and legislative changes, right through to changing socio-demographic factors. There are a number of examples from a wide range of sectors and we will be adding new focus areas as the team grows.
Current examples of our focus areas include: mapping the impact of PSD2 within the financial service sector, developing propositions that help businesses manage the challenge of GDPR and building on our long heritage of data analytics and digital transformation within the transport sector.
