Startpoint brings together the best teams in naval defence systems to tackle the twin challenges of providing advanced technology set against the backdrop of funding constraints. It encompasses the structures, processes, people and policies that exist to deliver equipment and support to the Royal Navy.



Mission systems are the brains of modern warships, combining sensors, weapons and decision-making tools, and represent more than 50% of their value. Recognising the rising complexity of maritime mission systems, UK organisations are collaborating to combine decades of operational and practical experience to offer expertise and knowledge to markets where sophisticated performance is demanded but without the high ownership costs associated with older systems.


Startpoint offers the opportunity to engage with the UK to explore Maritime Mission Systems requirements and exploit approaches to procurement. It leads the way to a range of products and expert services from smart design to mission system integration and waterfront support.
