The security and defence sectors are facing unprecedented challenge, both at home and abroad. At NPL, we have a long tradition of working with manufacturers and suppliers of the technology and equipment being used by our armed services and security industry. As co-operation between allies and partners is paramount, it is important that standards and systems are compatible and robust. 

Our aim is to ensure that the armed forces have the training, equipment and support necessary for their work. Our expertise covers underwater acoustics, satellite equipment, biometric monitoring, encryption and communication networks.
