Who are QED Naval?

About us

An experienced management team who have a track record of delivering technology of global significance.

QED Naval was founded in 2008 after over a decade of working within the naval defence research developing state of the art, SMART stealth technologies. This helped formulate the basics of product development using CADMID, (Concept, Assessment, Detailed Design, Manufacture, In-service and Decommissioning) where each stage of the products life is carefully considered.

Small design teams are represented on the board who are all experts in their own domain and are qualified to make informed decisions and consider the impact quickly. This allows ideas to evolve rapidly and get to a design point quicker.
