Parts of our MRAs have been to Mars
We are proud to have worked on the British Beagle 2 Mars Lander. Our Miniature Radar Altimeter was used to deploy the air bags to cushion its landing on Mars on Christmas Day 2003. Infamously, contact was lost with the lander when it began its descent to the Martian surface. In 2015, NASA found it was the lander’s solar panels that failed to deploy.

Roke developed ANPR
In the early 1990s Roke was influential in developing automatic number-plate recognition (ANPR) technology. While the concept of ANPR had already been invented, it was Roke’s pioneering use of software that further developed the technology.

Roke won a Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation in 2011
We were selected for the award in recognition of our RESOLVE electronic warfare manpack product. Designed for military use, RESOLVE is a step change in the technology that troops use, as no other electronic warfare system provides such a high level of direction-finding capability for soldiers on patrol.
