Secure Systems & Technologies Ltd (SST) has just announced investment of £400,000 for the upgrade of its cutting edge TEMPEST testing chambers and acquisition of the latest test equipment.
Matthew Richards, Managing Director at SST Ltd comments:
“This investment in our business will allow us to maintain our competitive edge and continue to grow the business. The future looks bright; we have a record order book and plans involve building on our expertise in design and manufacture of military rugged and secure products with further penetration into Europe and the emerging market countries”.
“As well as large orders such as the £2.5 million one for the Watchkeeper UAV programme, where we provide the rugged servers and secure network connectivity and the more recent £1.5 million contract for the UK, we’re active in UOR’s (Urgent Operational Requirements). The combination of our business agility and integrated design, prototype, production and test facilities on a single site enables us to meet demanding timescales and offer better value bespoke services without the complex supply chain of some larger competitors”.
“The government Strategic Defence and Security Review last year has meant some tough times for some companies, but as a specialist defence and security IT manufacturer we are bucking the trend with a record order-book. This is a measure of the confidence customers have in SST”.
“SST operates within the Secure Systems and Information Assurance Division of API Technologies Corp., a respected $400m US based group which designs, develops and manufactures systems, subsystems, RF and secure communications solutions for technically demanding defence, aerospace and commercial applications”.
“This underlines our commitment to this market – where our customers are looking for financially stable partners for minimising the risk on military programmes which may need to be supported for decades”.
