Five Things to Know About the Military’s ‘Most Innovative Company’ A group of military contractors are working on the next generation of military equipment.
The company is called SNC-Lavalin and is building a $2.6 billion (€2.3 billion) advanced battlefield technology platform, the company said on its website.
It will include the latest technologies for “advancing the use of unmanned aerial vehicles and ground sensors and for detecting, locating, and identifying hostile or enemy forces.”
It is the latest project to emerge from a group of veterans and engineers led by former Navy SEAL Marcus Coggins.
They are part of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, a Pentagon agency that is working on new military technology.
They also are developing an advanced cyber-defense platform called RAS, for Remote Area System.
It is similar to the Aegis system developed by the U.S. Navy, which has been used by countries around the world.
The RAS system can detect, track and locate small ships and other vessels in the ocean and detect weapons, said Coggin, who is also CEO of SNC.
“It’s like the Aegi, but it’s in the water and it can track you from the air,” he said.
“We are going to have to take advantage of this and use it to defend our country and our homeland.”SNC has been developing military hardware for decades, said company spokesperson David Miller.
It’s in its early stages but already it has developed a variety of different technologies, including sensors, weapons and unmanned aerial systems.
“We are the most innovative company in the world and we are building a platform to provide our customers with the highest quality products at the lowest price,” Miller said.SNC said the platform is also being used to help with battlefield training, enabling military and civilian personnel to use their skills.
“Military applications of this technology are the biggest opportunities in the field today, and SNC is working to meet the needs of the next era of combat operations,” Miller added.
“This new technology platform will deliver the most advanced technologies for the next century, including autonomous, stealthy, high-speed, advanced and silent aircraft.”
The company did not provide any details about the technology, but said it will be available for sale in 2021.
It will be the first of its kind in the military.
It was established by retired U.K. Royal Navy officers to build the next-generation military hardware.
Satellite imagery, drones and sensor networks will be key to the future, Miller said, but the technology is still in its development stage.”SNC is developing the technology for future missions, but we also want to build on that capability and to ensure that it’s available to the right people in the right places,” he added.
