WHAT WE DO. We specialise in providing solutions for complex engineering challenges. By efficiently using a broad range of skills, we deliver innovative solutions that meet the highest standards for robustness, reliability and ease of manufacture.

Our key markets include Defence, Medical & Healthcare, and Security. We also have a significant presence in Internet-Of-Things technology and the design and manufacture of volume products.

WHO WE ARE. Our market-focussed expertise ranges from innovation and concept development to product and system design and equipment manufacture and supply. Trusted by organisations worldwide, our teams deliver maximum value from our clients’ investments in technology.

Our knowledge of specific markets helps us fully understand our customer’s challenges and opportunities, which leads to the most appropriate application of technology in each assignment. We are deeply committed to delivering the best possible solution for our customers and work hard to maintain our class-leading reputation.

Smart Cities

With sensors embedded everywhere from consumer devices to city infrastructure, we can capture and translate your environment into meaningful information through intelligent application of cutting edge technology.

Security

We understand the key security market challenges and generate solutions through to delivery, giving you the confidence that your product is delivered to the assured level of security, performance, resilience and ergonomics that you need.

Strategic Consultancy

One of Plextek’s strengths is that it backs its technical implementation skills with consultancy in the form of strategic advice and studies.

Signal Processing

Typically, systems use signal processing as the means to extract from, process or prioritise high order data from gathered sensor output for presentation to another system element.

Sensor Systems

Sensor Systems allow our solutions to gather information about the world around them. Ensuring that this information is timely, unambiguous, accurate and easy to interpret can be a significant technical challenge in its own right.

Radar Systems

Plextek has a long heritage in the development of optimal RF solutions specifically designed to meet the needs of high performance Radar and Communication applications. Our multidisciplinary “ground up” approach enables us to clearly identify our client’s requirements and work collaboratively to meet the client needs.

Product Design

In everything that we interact with in our daily lives, product design plays an integral part.
Developing complex systems in a multidisciplinary team is how we work on a daily basis. We work to develop innovative product design whilst ensuring integrity in the whole system.

Manufacturing

Plextek’s manufacturing team are able to translate your ideas into robust, scalable, tested and approved designs that we can transfer to manufacturing using suppliers selected by us or our client.

Embedded Systems

Embedded systems are the core of what we do; they deliver the intelligence that makes products work.

Data Exploitation

Data is at the heart of everything, and there is no doubt that for good or for ill we can’t move through the modern world without leaving a digital footprint and generating data.

Communication Systems

Communications Systems are intrinsic to our heritage as providers of bespoke solutions. The effective exchange of information in our technology allows seamless integration into wider networks or as standalone ready to implement systems.

Antennas & Propagation

Antennas form an important and integral part of many of the wireless products we create.

Medical & Healthcare

Medical product development projects have technical challenges that differ from one to the next. Solving these complex R&D challenges cannot be done by following an established route and innovative concept generation is a key to your success.
