Defence Electronics



On the modern battlefield every soldier, vehicle, ship, aircraft and satellite is a node in a networked environment.


Today's ground soldier may receive video, email, images and maps from a host of sources, through a hand-held device little larger than a mobile phone. Military aircraft, ships and vehicles field suites of antennas and systems to communicate and navigate, detect and defeat threats, in order to fulfil their mission and return safely.


Cobham is a major worldwide player in this field, developing and manufacturing critical "front end" sensor systems such as antennas, microwave modules, radomes and communications equipment that are the backbone of today's digital world.


Many of our products are unseen by the end user, forming part of radar, communications and warning systems often delivered by a major manufacturer such as BAE Systems, Boeing, Lockheed Martin or Northrop Grumman.


In this way Cobham technology is at the heart of many of the world's best known defence platforms, including the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, F-22 Raptor Stealth Fighter, Global Hawk Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, Humvee and Stryker armoured vehicles, and US Navy Aegis and Royal Navy Type 45 warships.
