We provide the defence industry the design, testing and qualification of military equipment.

We work with defence manufacturers from the concept of their products with our Early Stage qualification (ESQ®) service to support them through the complex nature of qualification testing modern defence equipment. Our ESQ® expertise gained from testing thousands of different products every year allows us to help companies experience a smoother journey through the final testing and validation phase of their projects, reducing their risk and final cost of testing.

TRaC is UKAS accredited to ISO/IEC 17025:2005 and has the largest capacity of defence EMC and environmental testing in the UK with six testing centres. We are also able to deliver a unique range of wider testing and validation often required by defence manufactures during qualification, such as:

  • Explosive Atmosphere
  • Engineering Simulation & Finite Element Analysis
  • CE Marking
  • E Marking

This makes TRaC the natural choice of testing partner for defence companies when they are looking to develop and take their products to market.

Our expertise in tri-service and validation helps the entire supply chain demonstrate the durability and effectiveness of its products in the challenging military environments in which they will be deployed. It also ensures that products qualify against defence test standards as well as other legal obligations, such as:

  • DEF STAN 59-411
  • DEF STAN 00-35
  • MIL-STD 461
  • MIL-STD 810
  • CE Marking
  • Explosive Atmospheres
  • Safety Testing
  • E Marking (whole vehicles and automotive sub-assemblies)
