Tekever to participate in Royal Navy exercise
Mon 13th June 2016
Science Park tenant Tekever is to showcase its pioneering unmanned systems at a major international event hosted by the Royal Navy this autumn. The Royal Navy’s Unmanned Warrior project will explore the increased use of unmanned and autonomous systems – often referred to as drones – to deliver maritime capabilities in the future. This technology has the potential to be used for surveying, anti-submarine warfare, intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition and reconnaissance (ISTAR) and mine-hunting. The project is a milestone in demonstrating the Royal Navy’s commitment to embracing technical innovations.
Around 40 research and development companies, including Tekever, will exhibit the latest technological developments in this field in a large scale demonstration of challenging scenarios. It will take place in a tactically representative operational environment off the West Coast of Scotland this autumn.
Tekever has its UK Head Office at Southampton Science Park and has long been working in the field of autonomous systems. Managing Director, Paul Webb, said: “Our software-focused approach to unmanned systems sets us apart from others working in our sector. This is why we now have a division dedicated to creating multi-purpose, multi-role unmanned systems for both civilian and military markets. We are thrilled that we will have an opportunity to demonstrate what they can do to an international audience of defence experts later this year.”
