The company began trading in November 2013 and was set up by Directors, Tony Burnell and Jem Waring. Having gained very niche experience whilst serving in the RAF, the company started out by providing technical support to military organisations and their prime contractors.  However, in 2014 the company embarked on an R&D programme to develop its innovative signals intelligence system – HYPERION, which has led to the team increasing from 6 to 10 over the last 6 months.
