At BAE Systems we search for new ways to provide our customers with a competitive edge across the air, maritime, land and cyber domains. We employ a skilled workforce of 83,200 people in over 40 countries, and work closely with local partners to support economic development by transferring knowledge, skills and technology. Our Naval Ships business designs and builds complex warships for the UK Royal Navy with next generation naval platforms at various stages of construction, including HMS Prince of Wales, the Queen Elizabeth Class aircraft carrier, the City Class Type 26 Global Combat Ships and the River Class offshore patrol vessels. We also deliver revolutionary combat systems technologies like Shared Infrastructure, which establishes a common shared architecture across all Royal Navy warships allowing all software to be accessed from a single console. We are also exploring opportunities to export the licensed reference design of the UK Type 26 for Canadian and Australian government procurement programmes.
