The facility is home to our Ground Penetrating Radar design experts, whose critical design work embedded in both our AMULET stand-off mine and IED detection equipment, and Vallon’s latest generation of Minehound and Wirehound detectors, has saved countless lives over the past few decades.
Also at this facility, our Chelton development engineers are developing the world’s first application of LTE (4G/5G) for use in airborne public safety applications for the UK Home Office Emergency Services Mobile Communications Programme, Aircraft Communications System (ESMCP ACS). Redhill Aerodrome is a fitting location given Chelton now boasts having both the National Police Aviation Support and Kent Surrey Sussex Air Ambulance as its neighbours.
This facility will provide a dedicated, inspirational and purpose-built area for Chelton’s engineers and designers to continue innovating and enabling our customers’ ability to handle emerging threats. After all, our failsafe and pioneering technology in demanding environments is all driven by the people behind the products.
