Design Capability

Through our continuous progress we have built up a comprehensive capability to design, manufacture and test the products that we develop. The development of DEAP activated tools led to extraordinary research and development of the mechanics, electronics, software and power packages to deliver exactly what we aimed to achieve.

Our capabilities range from straight forward mechanical CAD through to more sophisticated electronics and software design. Our engineers work to the latest international and industry standards.
