We’re pleased to announce that we’ve been awarded a contract to undertake requirements gathering and planning for the development of a deployable demonstrator situational awareness system. Enabled by the BSI FLEX 335:2023 (SAPIENT) standard developed by the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl), the prototype demonstrator system will be used to gain (non-technical) user-feedback from hands-on use, covering deployment, running, and usage of an integrated multi-sensor situational awareness system.

The task will be funded via Lot 1 (lead by Roke Manor Research Ltd) of the Serapis Framework Agreement, with the initial phase focusing on surveying the current state of BSI FLEX 335-compliant technologies that are required for the situational awareness system and identifying what is available.  

Sean Kennedy, Helyx MD, stated “Helyx has experience in standards definition and implementation through work with the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), so this exciting opportunity to work with Roke and Dstl on Phase 1 of the SAPIENT project will further enhance our credentials in this area.”



We are pleased to announce that we have recently been awarded funding from the UK Ministry of Defence to address challenges in the Defence Rapid Impact area via the Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) Open Call for Innovation competition.

The Remote Sensing Team at Helyx will combine its expertise in satellite imagery analysis with Defence operational hazards and climate modelling to provide a capability to predict, monitor, alert and assess climate risks as they emerge, both for military operations and training exercises.

By demonstrating this capability using specific scenarios of interest, climate risks to Defence Capabilities can be identified and managed, mitigating potentially large threats to operational effectiveness and safety. This supports the ambition, principles and methods outlined in the Ministry of Defence Climate Change and Sustainability Strategic Approach.

This work will involve stakeholder engagement, scenario development, setting up a satellite imagery service, determining operational thresholds and developing a proto-type demonstrator.

Sean Kennedy, Helyx MD, stated “We are delighted to secure this work with DASA. This innovative project enables us to provide key support to the MOD for this exciting and relevant initiative, and it gives us confidence in our commitment to grow our remote sensing and space capabilities.”
