WHAT WE DO
Future-proofing critical services
Critical National Infrastructure (CNI), consists of large networks of operational technology linked by telecommunication networks to IT systems, that manage the delivery of critical services and drive our economy. Energy companies, train operators, telecom network/communication providers, and water companies are among providers in the 13 national infrastructure sectors.
Roke has a deep understanding of the range of systems and technology deployed as part of IT and OT estates, and, in addition, has extensive experience of how to manage, optimise, govern and provision the huge volume of data that can be extracted from such systems. This range of capability and experience means that Roke can design, implement, advise, assure and help protect digital estates to enable our customers to achieve performance optimisation and affordable security of supply.
Cyber security and resilience
Cyber security is an ever evolving challenge, with threats and mitigations changing on a daily basis. Roke is trusted by governments and large organisations to provide advice, guidance and action in responding to those threats.
From insight into security operating models, to data lifecycle management and technical hardware assurance, our enterprise architects and cyber security consultants advise clients on the security architecture of their networks, infrastructure and their mitigation to the cloud.
Understanding the state of assets, both physical and digital, and optimising maintenance operations has been a key driver in the development of many of our solutions. Innovations include mature machine vision technologies that are automating plant inspections for our clients, and in some cases reducing inspection time from hours to minutes.
We have also developed novel bespoke sensing technologies that can detect faults in complex sensor arrays that are often undetectable by conventional systems. To do this we utilise a broad range of sensing tech including radar (including radiometry, and ground-penetrating radar), machine vision (automatic damage recognition), and acoustics for engine health monitoring.
Roke also offers digital asset management, including digital forensic tooling to allow operators to capture disk images and patch status of their assets whilst ensuring continuous operation.
Developing Rolls-Royce's Intelligent Borescope with AI
Roke has applied its expertise in artificial intelligence (AI) and computer vision to accelerate the development of Rolls-Royce’s industry-first Intelligent Borescope.
Accurate location and navigation without GPS
Location, mapping and navigation aids are routinely used by people and systems. They’re largely dependent on satellite systems like GPS. In circumstances where GPS is not available, for example, when underground, in large buildings or when GPS is disrupted, alternative navigation approaches are needed.
Wireless data links for oil and gas well monitoring
Expro had a requirement for several sensors to be able to communicate with each other when located side-by-side. Each sensor unit is encased in several millimetres of solid stainless steel in order for it to survive temperatures as high as 175°C and pressures of up to 20,000psi, as well as the presence of corrosive fluids.
