Techmodal will create a data science delivery cell with the Royal Navy's Digital Services {NDS) division to help the Royal Navy to be a fully digital organisation by 2023.

The cell will work with NDS and Dstl data scientists to provide the Royal Navy with operational advantage and will drive a digital culture, underpinned by support and knowledge transfer from industry experts Adarga, Capgemini, Geollect and Rebellion Defence.

This team is centred on Techmodal's expertise and track record of delivery, creating a cutting-edge transformative data science provider that can be relied on to deliver at scale. It will offer NDS agile delivery with specialist artificial intelligence (Al) analytics, cyber expertise and geospatial intelligence knowledge.

Gareth Vaughan, Managing Director at Techmodal said: "Winning this work is a fantastic outcome for the Techmodal team. We are looking forward to getting stuck into tasks that will rapidly deliver lasting benefit to the Royal Navy by unleashing the potential of their data."

Acquired by BAE Systems a year ago, Techmodal is a UK-based applied data science business solving complex data problems to help those in defence harness their data using experts, teams and bespoke tools to support their most important business decisions.
