Software for the most advanced defence systems in the world

Zircon provides Aerospace, MOD and Defence Prime Contractors with a partner with a demonstrable track record of successfully delivering software solutions. Our experience in developing Safety and High Integrity software is directly applicable to the military domain where robustness and reliability is critical.

Cobham Company LogoCobham is one of the oldest and most respected companies in the defence and aerospace market. They offer services to both military and civil customers, which can range from internet in the sky to missile jamming and guidance systems.

Zircon worked with Cobham to port on-plane software used to plan and execute operational readiness training, mission rehearsal and electronic warfare training for military and international armed forces to a new supportable platform.

“There was a bit of an issue in that this environment was new to the Zircon engineers…but they soon developed a good understanding of what was going on.”
Member of Staff, Cobham
“The fact that they had BSI ISO9001:2008 (TickIT) accreditation was important to us.”
Member of Staff, Cobham
“The level of services from Zircon was excellent, they were very professional.”
Member of Staff, Cobham
“We had no difficulty sorting out challenges as they arose – they were good at communicating.”
Member of Staff, Cobham
“They had all the necessary skills, capabilities and resources, but weren’t so large that working closely with us was a problem – it was a good fit.”
Member of Staff, Cobham
“They were very focused on building a good relationship with us, and pretty driven in terms of accomplishing what was required on schedule.”

Synoptix Company LogoSynoptix are providers of high-level engineering solutions for a variety of technical industries. They deliver systems and safety support to their customers in the defence, aerospace, marine, energy, automotive and rail sectors.

Zircon worked with Synoptix on a DSTL project involving the development of video analysis software to identify specified objects in recorded footage or still images.

“I found Zircon very easy to work with. The process involved a lot of discussion and negotiation. They were very cooperative, very helpful throughout.”
Operations Manager, Synoptix/DTSL
“I’d definitley endorse them with regard to their quality of communication, and the quality of documentation they produced…If we get any further work on this I’ll be teaming up with Zircon, no question.”
