About us

Helyx is a leading provider of end-to-end Geographic Information System (GIS) solutions for the
management and exploitation of information.


Who we are

Helyx was established in 2002 to provide applied research and project support for the UK MOD. More recently we have developed a reputation as a company that excels in geospatial (location-based) information systems and their management, together with information exploitation techniques, advice and solutions.

We work predominantly within the Defence and National Security sectors and translate our skills into a variety of commercial sectors. We enable our clients to store, manage, disseminate and analyse their information and intelligence. This provides them with a common understanding of their operational environment which enables them to reduce uncertainty and make quicker, more accurate and more intelligent operational decisions. Our experts have considerable experience gained through previous service in the military and in supporting Defence, Public Sector and commercial clients. This real-world knowledge and operational experience gives us an enviable insight into our clients’ needs. With over 50 specialists and consultants to draw upon, we provide the largest dedicated expert resource pool in Defence and National Security Geospatial Information Systems within the UK.

What we do

Helyx supports the end-to-end implementation of geospatial capability from the definition of a vision to the design, development and deployment of technical solutions that are integrated within a clients’ infrastructure. We are experts in handling large volumes of data, providing and integrating private and enterprise level systems as well as the provision of mobile and inter-connected capabilities for field and deployed operations. We advise, equip and enable the interpretation and utilisation of data in a way that shows clear patterns and identifies trends, warnings and opportunities. We use our cultural, organisational and technical understanding of geospatial information and systems to deliver an informed and intelligent view of the world.


We provide advice, support and systems to turn data about the world into meaningful and accessible intelligence for our clients. This intelligence improves our clients’ operations, enhances their success and gives them a competitive advantage. Our knowledge of end users, the underpinning technology, the management and exploitation of data and acquisition processes reduces risk for our clients, ensuring that the solutions we deliver are relevant, realistic and cost-effective.

Our wide range of skills ensure that we address not only the immediate technological challenges, but also ensure our intervention has lasting organisational and capability benefits. Whatever your business sector we can help you make better informed decisions about your current and future operations. We help to unlock business intelligence and relationships in your information through effective location-based analysis. Our chief goal is to ensure that the underlying systems work as intended, provide the capabilities required of them and operate in the most efficient and cost-effective manner appropriate to the size and scale of your organisation.
