This benefits not only the Royal Navy, but also customers worldwide – and not least the entire ATLAS ELEKTRONIK Group. The success of the company speaks for itself. ATLAS ELEKTRONIK UK has grown into the largest single enterprise of the ATLAS ELEKTRONIK Group apart from the parent company. The development of ATLAS ELEKTRONIK UK (AEUK) is closely linked to the Admiralty Underwater Weapons Establishment (AUWE) in Portland, originally operated by the Royal Navy, together with other facilities along the south coast of England and, with that, the British Ministry of Defence (UK MoD). The history of research and development in the field of hydroacoustics and underwater weapons in this region extends back many decades. 1st October 2009 was the date on which AEUK came into being. Today, the company is characterised by three major success factors. It is extremely innovative and has demonstrated this time and time again. It has a sure command of rapid prototyping and can therefore offer customers a good basis for further optimisation work within a short space of time. It also excels at a very special kind of teamwork and project management. This special combination of know-how, team spirit and discipline is what makes AEUK so effective.
