Serco offers full-spectrum engineering capabilities to support defense and civilian missions combined with integrated solution delivery.
Engineering and integration
Full lifecycle support for new platforms and modernization
As a services-focused company, Serco provides a deep bench of engineering talent who approach each assignment from a hardware-agnostic perspective. We have worked closely with all the established platform providers but have only one agenda: the success of your mission.
We cover the entire lifecycle from initial concept and prototyping to acquisition support, sustainment, and disposal. By adopting new paradigms of digital engineering, our clients have been able to accelerate the cadence of fielding new capabilities. Serco’s people bring extensive expertise in managing large-scale modernization programs, including naval, air, ground, and space missions. We support our clients with the production, integration, and installation of new C5I and weapons systems that maintain the relevance of existing investments and sustain the tactical edge for warfighters.
Serco supports civilian agencies with engineering services, including civil, electrical, mechanical, and hydrological engineering. We have extensive experience in facilities management, command and communications centers, and emergency response.
There are three essential components to realizing this “digital trinity.” Models-based Systems Engineering requires developing a fully functional digital thread to accelerate and optimize design tradeoffs and then manage the modernization and maintenance of the platform across its lifecycle. An Agile Software Technology Stack enables containerized and incremental improvements that continuously enhance the platform's capabilities, including integrating AI at the edge. Using reference architecture and interfaces defined by the customer, an Open Architecture approach prevents the escalation of operations and maintenance costs due to OEM "lock-in."
Serco’s experts in digital transformation help clients define the right path to adopt the Digital Engineering Enterprise based on the specific needs of their program and acquire the right tools and ecosystem to enable this powerful new model.
Serco’s lifecycle engineering approach enables clients to evaluate tradeoffs in capabilities, time to deployment, joint operations, and sustainment requirements. We help clients transform “problem” programs into benchmarks of acquisition excellence.
Our systems engineers work at the cutting edge of technology to optimize situational awareness, integrate new weapons, and protect against cyber and other emerging threats. Our expertise includes C5I, electromagnetic pulse protection, and the integration of AI into offensive, defensive, and navigational capabilities.
Platform Design and Engineering
We are one of the world's premier naval architects, and our team has played a role in the development of every major ship class for the US Navy over the past four decades. We have developed a digital design platform that can evaluate millions of discrete changes to accelerate the development of next-generation platforms. We provide independent engineering support for integrating, testing, validation, and cyber hardening advanced armaments with aircraft, ships, and ground vehicles.
Software is essential to maintaining strategic advantage in the era of networked warfare and automation. Serco’s software engineers work with a range of advanced technologies to adapt applications to military specifications and integrate machine learning and artificial intelligence to advance smart capabilities.
Systems Production, Integration, and Installation
Serco takes the risk out of large-scale platform modernization with our proven capabilities to assemble, integrate, test, and install upgraded systems in aircraft carriers, submarines, and military bases. Our integrated services offering spans the entire lifecycle of planning, engineering, and executing these programs to strict schedules and budgets.
