BAE Systems have won the Macro Employer of the Year Award and the Recruitment Excellence Award at the National Apprenticeship Awards in London, recognising the company’s dedication to delivering high-quality apprenticeships.
World-leading thermal imaging technology forms part of the BAE Systems-led bid to upgrade the Challenger 2 tank for the British Army – and would for the first time bring independent night vision for both the gunner and the commander.
BAE Systems Australia has selected Real Time Innovation's connectivity framework, RTI Connext DDS, for the Australian Royal Air Force-controlled JORN – Jindalee Operational Radar Network – Phase 6 Upgrade program.
BAE Systems and Goonhilly Earth Station (GES) have partnered up to commercialise deep space communications: GES will cover many spacecraft, including future manned and robotic missions to Mars.
BAE Systems engineers will soon benefit from collaborative robots – or ‘cobots’ – designed to support people who handle the complex manufacturing of combat aircraft by the end of this year.
The project should create at least 5,000 highly skilled jobs, developing Australia’s naval shipbuilding capability and bringing a boost to the nation’s manufacturing industry.
The U.S. DARPA, through the U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory, has awarded BAE Systems a $13.1 million contract to demonstrate a new, open architecture, cost-effective optical seeker for precision-guided munitions.
Research shows that young people are now more inspired career-wise by Mark Zuckerberg than David Beckham. This is just part of BAE Systems research in light of their nationwide STEM initiative: the Schools Roadshow.
BAE Systems has successfully demonstrated the safety and performance of its new Modular Bridging System by simulating over 22,000 crossings of the Challenger 2 Main Battle Tank – the equivalent weight of 121,000 double-decker buses.
Within the next few decades, armed forces could be using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) with adaptable aircraft technologies that alternate between fixed-wing flight and rotary-wing flight.
This ‘wearable cockpit’ technology is designed to revolutionise the training and combat jet cockpits of the future – offering much higher human-to-machine intuitiveness than traditional aircraft controls.
BAE Systems engineers have developed a low cost, lightweight, flexible system that can block dangerous laser light, protecting pilots and flight crew from hostile attacks.
Bluetooth and sensing technology reports the remaining service-life of military bridging systems. The technology detects the stress and strain on bridges designed for use by tanks such as the over 60-tonne Challenger 2.
The internationally adopted Global Positioning System, may be challenged by a UK system.
