Industry : Defence

Commission : Phoenix Dynamics has worked with BAE Systems for many years supplying components for their M777 Howitzer gun. The weapon was bought in large numbers by the US Military, and the opportunity arose for Phoenix Dynamics to approach the US Department of Defence directly.

Scope of Works : Phoenix got in touch with the UK Trade & Investment's Defence & Security Organisation for help and advice on how to secure such contracts. We visited Picatinny Arsenal in New Jersey, the US Military's Ground Combat Support Centre. With help from the UKTI a relationship with the US DoD was formed.

Results : Phoenix have gone from supplying the Howitzer with one cable assembly, to supplying a wide range of cable related products for the M777 gun. 

Further Notes : Phoenix Dynamics went on to win the Exporter of the Year Award for successfully supplying products to the US Army
