From its inception, the SubSea Craft team has been a carefully chosen group of highly experienced experts, each with proven track records in their own fields: inventing, designing, developing and manufacturing innovative products for defence organisations around the world, or with direct practical and tactical experience as end users.
They are supported by an inhouse design technical team and external partners such as BAR Technologies (one of the world’s finest marine engineering authorities).
Our non-executive team provides creative and strategic insight to the SubSea Craft Board. We are fortunate to have highly experienced NEDs with extensive knowledge across a number of sectors who work seamlessly with, and provide support to, our senior leadership team.
