What we do
Transform what matters most
We’ve been innovating for over 60 years, and our team of curious and technical engineers have in-depth market knowledge, exceptional expertise, and a passion for developing cutting-edge solutions that are always tried and tested.
Connecting the physical and digital worlds
Our engineers, scientists and consultants include world-experts with decades of experience. We apply our rich heritage of doing things no one's done before to make a lasting impact, helping to create long-term value for our customers.
Our experts have conceptualised and developed key innovations that have revolutionised industries.
Ongoing criminal cases are managed with the support of an event log, updated by investigators with chronological entries and distributed activities. In large-scale investigations, this flat structure can slow down the tracking of progress and actions. Find out how we researched more agile ways in which law enforcement officers could streamline their approach to case management.Find out more
As drone technology improves, security threats are rapidly evolving. Locating these devices is critical, but different geographic and electromagnetic environments often require very different approaches to detection, and active methods like radar are not always viable. To counter this, passive techniques, like acoustic monitoring, must be developed.Find out more
The current process for radiology reviews for oncology patients is that disease progression is evaluated by comparing Computerised Tomography (CT) scans. This process is time consuming and complicated. Find out how we used AI to develop a proof of concept that has the potential to speed up the analysis of CT scans.Find out more
Turbine engines must be regularly inspected to detect key maintenance requirements given the quality, cost and safety critical nature of the product. Find out how we worked with Rolls-Royce on its INSPECT system to design and develop algorithms that identify defects in compressor blades in videos of engines spinning down after use.Find out more
Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) are vital for navigation, positioning and timing services. However, they're weak, making then vulnerable to interference and deception. Find out how we investigated using stronger satellite systems to supplement GNSS signals.Find out more
Accuracy is critical when making use of information from communications data to investigate missing persons cases. Find out how we worked with the Law Enforcement community to help them use geolocation accurately and efficiently.Find out more
Over 300,000 first responders across Great Britain need a dedicated emergency services network they can rely on to save lives and help keep communities safe. Roke was tasked with providing independent design assurance of an Air-to-Ground (A2G) network.Find out more
Searching heavy goods vehicles at border control can be time consuming and places challenges on how to best deploy patrol officers and resources. Roke developed a robustly designed system to save time, ease operator burden & improve search accuracy by imaging non-metallic goods vehicles.Find out more
Collaborating with key stakeholders and open source research to conduct a threat assessment to determine the likely capabilities of peer adversary Electronic Warfare (EW) equipment.Find out more
Leading the design and implementation for a multi-agency threat and opportunity hub owned by the UK intelligence, law enforcement, and policing communities.Find out more
Key parts of our Miniature Radar Altimeters (MRAs) have been thoroughly tested on a 200 million kilometre flight through space to Mars, as part of the Beagle 2 Mars Lander.Find out more
Over the years Roke has applied its world-class engineering to support a number of Team GB Olympic athletes including rowing and BMX teams.Find out more
