Research is at the heart of what we do.

We are committed to using research to deliver cost-effective, impartial advice and innovative solutions to the New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) and other government organisations.

Our four research groups are:

  1. C4ISR systems – supporting the NZDF’s network enabled capability vision
  2. Platform & protection systems – providing research and investigative work to support NZDF’s air, naval and land vehicles, and the equipment and weapons utilised by individual personnel
  3. Electronic warfare systems – delivering operational analysis advice and advanced sensing and counter measures solutions to all elements of the NZDF
  4. Operations analysis & human systems  – ensuring military personnel can perform effectively, efficiently and reliably, to their maximum potential, through optimal integration with defence systems and equipment.
