Our long heritage in supporting the maritime market means that we are constantly looking to new technology to support our customers – developing mission critical solutions that keep people safer whilst optimising performance and efficiency.


Life support systems

tpgroup’s market-leading life support systems has led to worldwide adoption from the UK nuclear submarines to many other diesel-electric fleets. Our technology, tested to the highest performance and reliability, ensures better air quality for personnel working in enclosed environments – hundreds of metres below sea level such as submarines, hyperbaric chambers, diving applications and small submersibles. Further, our designs minimise noise, vibration, electromagnetic interference and chemical discharges – making them quieter than their predecessors and harder to detect.

Complex systems engineering

Our Consulting and Programmes team provides systems engineering for complex military platforms such as submarines which rely upon a ‘single-point-of-truth’ model to capture and maintain a complex system design including hardware, software and firmware. We design, deliver and support new capability and critical applications through their operational life, assuring secure performance.

Digital solutions

We have developed North*, our integrated technology suite, which combines digital world building with a toolbox of autonomy and spatial modelling and can be applied to solve many complex problems – regardless of platform. North* can be developed for a number of applications including improving fleet availability, enabling quicker effective decision-making and delivering a dynamic autonomous navigation system.

Rugged IT solutions

Recognising the challenges of communication and operations of military deployment in increasingly challenging environments, our Westek subsidiary produces a range of rugged IT solutions. This includes Westek’s high quality, high availability 19 inch rack mount military and industrial computer servers and RAID data storage systems. These are designed for the world’s most challenging environments, and are proven in meeting challenging military and security requirements.
