Special Projects, Wireless, Electronics and Signal Processing

At BAE Systems, our mission is to support those who defend nations, organisations and citizens from physical and cyber threats.

As part of this mission, we work with National Security and Defence sectors on special projects:

  • We develop bespoke software and hardware solutions for complex problems
  • We are an innovative high-end supplier of effective specialised security technology, specialising in communications and surveillance
  • We have unique capabilities in very high speed communications and wireless technologies, electronics and signal processing.

We have an established track record of finding solutions to technical problems others could not solve.

Wireless Technologies, Electronics and Signal Processing

We have deep technical knowledge in the field of electronics and signal processing and work closely with our customers to deliver answers to the most complex challenges. This includes:
  • Software Radio and Applications
    Developing and manufacturing high performance Software Defined Radio (SDR) hardware and software to meet the challenges of national security, law enforcement and military customers.
  • Surveillance Technology
    o  Developing and supplying comprehensive end-to-end solutions for use in the most demanding operational security and environmental conditions.
  • Situational Awareness
    o  Providing end-to-end solutions with sensors and tools to both capture and make sense of the acoustic or electromagnetic (EM) environment.
  • Advanced signal processing
    o  Making sense of high bandwidth complex data in real-time through the use of embedded Digital Signal Processing (DSP) on FPGAs (e.g. VHDL) and software (e.g. C/C++/Java).
  • Specialist Communications
    o  Delivering critical elements of strategic communications systems to enable military forces to communicate securely even in difficult EM environments  - from submarines under the oceans through to geostationary satellites in outer space.
  • Comprehensive and tailor made full-life support
    o  For all our capabilities we offer comprehensive full-life support.

Our approach to these stages varies in consultation with the customers, their needs and to deliver best value for money. As such the approach adopted may take the form of bespoke hardware and software solutions through to system integration of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) modules.
