Its team will also unveil more details about its work on hydrogen energy solutions, fire suppression systems, ultra-high pressure monitoring ranges and innovations in AI and machine learning.

Andrew Barnett (above), director at the nearly 50-strong Fareham company, said: “All at Barnbrook Systems are excited about this year’s airshow.

“We may have been attending this event for nearly 30 years but we are also a modern, forward-thinking company which focuses on growth and continuous improvement through creativity and innovation.

“We are looking forward to showcasing our new and upgraded engineering systems aimed at delivering bespoke solutions to meet myriad requirements of today’s aerospace, aviation and defence sectors.”

Andrew, who is member of the board at Farnborough Aerospace Consortium (FAC), added: “Sustainability and the drive to net zero are proving to be major dynamos as the pace of the digital revolution continues to accelerate.

“We’re keen to demonstrate how our applications, including our work on hydrogen projects, can harness the power of change at the airshow and share ideas with other innovators from across the world.”

Independent, family owned Barnbrook Systems - which will be in the main hall at the airshow on 22nd-26th July - has recently won a repeat, six-figure order in for its inflight refuelling switch for aerospace giant Leonardo. The first deal for this system was signed at the 2016 airshow.

Barnbrook Systems marked its 40th anniversary at the show in 2018 and its late founder Tony Barnett met the then Prime Minister David Cameron in 2014.

The airshow, which is held once every two years, is expected to feature 1,300 exhibitors and attract 75,000 visitors. It will include air displays, stands, displays, exhibitions, workshops and networking opportunities. The theme this year is ‘pioneer the future’.
