Verifiable independence means BMT can be a customer friend to governments or work for any defence prime from concept through to disposal or as a critical partner where we actively transfer knowledge and expertise. Vidar®-36, our design for a large, ocean-going SSK, demonstrates we know what we advise others about. Vidar® image © BMT Defence Services 2008, Image Credit:

Computer training taking place
Assessing how technologies mature is a familiar activity at BMT, supported by our technology watch programmes and the integration knowledge of our systems engineers (supported by tools such as TeMAP® developed by our own software solutions experts).

Naval equipment production facility
J+S Ltd combine comprehensive in-house engineering development skills with equipment support solutions and bespoke production capabilities to deliver cost effective, capable and robust solutions to a range of customer requirements.

Navantia designs, builds and repairs a wide range of ships for navies all over the world.

Navantia also specialize in vessel energy and propulsion systems, weapons systems, and platform control systems.

Navantia design and build some of the most high-tech vessels in the world.

NAVDEX - the dedicated naval defence and coastal security exhibition launches in February 2011.

Live on-water and amphibious demonstrations will take place daily at the marina beach.

Co-located with IDEX the largest tri-service defence exhibition in the Middle East and North Africa.

NAVDEX will attract high profile visitors and official delegations.

Visiting naval vessels will attend NAVDEX 2011.
