An established and respected supplier of test & verification equipment and services
The RTDC has a long history in the design, manufacture and support of evaluation and testing (E&T) equipment and services for major programmes. This includes developing E&T strategy and plans for all stages through to trials, as well as designing and building bespoke equipment and real-time recording systems. Our specialist multi-disciplinary engineering team, with the necessary support services, developed our products and services including planning and undertaking sea trials of multi-sensor systems. Radar, EW, sonar, infrared line-scan (IRLS) as well as other electro-optic visual imagery are typical of these high-speed sensors and sensor systems.
Staying at the leading edge, with a change in direction
Many of these projects include high-speed recording with ‘quick-look’ processing of data during bench testing or field trials. The ‘quick-look’ facility is essential to avoid expensive, but nugatory work, if unexpected incidents occur. In-depth analysis, or data reconstruction with accurate cross-channel correlation, are important features of post-recording replay.
Reasons to get in touch…
Projects include support for Eurofighter Typhoon, Gripen, GlobalEye,and Nimrod plus a Tornado EO/IR reconnaissance pod and an EW airborne radar system. We have also provided equipment for ErieEye, AMSAR, CECAR, Rapier, ALARM and many others including several naval projects. We have produced E&T high speed data recording systems for SeaKing and SeaSpray Radar systems and for the ASTRAEA UAS programme. Satellite downlink data burst transfers are also in our portfolio. Typically, these are for radar, visual or magnetic signature applications.
The RTDC’s current focus is to step back and take a wider view. There is potential to create a new market in this area. We want to engage with other organisations to explore these opportunities. We hope that you will join us.
