Join BAE Systems Applied Intelligence to create the Navy of the future

Programme NELSON is transforming how the Royal Navy gains insight from data. You can help create it.
Naval Data Transformation Enabling the Royal Navy to gain insights from data
NELSON is an innovation programme which is using Artificial Intelligence and data science to construct a “Navy Mind” – a common big data platform – to be used on warships and at naval headquarters. From using predictive AI to undertake preventative ship maintenance, to identifying suspicious shipping behaviour, to strengthening logistics planning, NELSON is revolutionising how the Navy conducts its operations – on land and at sea.

BAE Systems Applied Intelligence has been involved with the NELSON programme almost since its inception. Our use of Agile working has identified efficiencies which otherwise would not have come to light. This has meant the programme is driving cultural change across the Navy, one focused on innovation, flexibility and inclusivity.
