Capabilities

30 years experience in supporting the UK’s ISTAR programmes.

With 30 years experience in supporting the UK’s ISTAR programmes, both UOR and core, MCL is adept at identifying the latest technologies and capabilities from suppliers around the world - we now have many trusted partners in Europe and the USA. We supply these capabilities, including the necessary PDS and ILS activities; from our secure facility in Surrey and, where equipment repair cannot be undertaken by ourselves, we manage its return to the OEM including ITAR and Export issues. MCL is committed to the consistent delivery of quality solutions and exceptional levels of customer satisfaction.

MCL has a wealth of operational and supply management experience and fully understands the challenges of the demanding environment in which our capabilities will be developed and deployed. It is this understanding, coupled with our project management skills and understanding of project risk, which earned Marlborough Communications recognition as a contributor to the Ministerial Award to the Force Protection Electronic Countermeasures and Integration Team in 2009.

Our engineers have designed and supported systems across the spectrum from HF to Microwave. These systems have been fielded across many domains including Force Protection and Communications (dismounted and vehicle). Issues such as thermal management, power supply conditioning and weight reduction have been successfully addressed.

Our design capability includes mechanical (including 3D modelling), RF (antennas, receivers, power amplifiers, GPS), power systems (vehicle and manpack power conditioning and filtering to Land Class A limits), digital design and audio circuits. Our Software capabilities include application and embedded software and firmware.
