Enterprise Control Systems Ltd (ECS) supply mission critical surveillance data links and RF inhibition systems in support of major event security around the world. ECS is a proven and trusted British supplier to the UK MOD, the Police and Security Services and to over 40 other contries' specialist military and government users.
An award winning company, ECS designs all products in-house and excels in providing the full spectrum of training and support needed to give a customer a complete national, sovereign capability. All ECS products are ITAR free.
Our latest accomplishment is to have formed the AUDS team.
The AUDS team brings together three leading British companies, each with the unique capabilities required to create an effective counter UAV system. Blighter's A400 series air security radars are able to DETECT small UAVs in all weather conditions, 24 hours a day flying in urban areas or near to the horizon. The Chess Dynamics Hawkeye EO/IR camera system, featuring both a long range colour Camera and a high sensitivity Thermal Imager (TI), along with state-of-the-art video tracking technology, classify the target. The operator is then able to make a timely and informed decision to use the Enterprise Control Systems ('ECS'), smart RF inhibitor to selectively interfere with the C2 channels on the UAV allowing the system to DISRUPT the UAV's mission. The smart RF inhibitor uses directional antennas to achieve maximum range of operation with minimum collateral effect.
ECS designs and produces a range of programmable jammers (RF Inhibitors) to counter the threat from RCIED's. ECS has many jammers in use on current operations with multiple nations today. ECS understands the mission critical, complex integration necessary between equipment performance, training, tactics, techniques and threat assessment needed to achieve optimum user capability in demanding and dynamic situations.
ECS designs and produces specialist COFDM data links optimised for use in the high level military and internal security domains. Advanced engineering techniques deliver full motion video and IP data over ranges of greater than 120 miles from rotary, fixed wing, or other air assets. ECS data links are fully secured (encrypted), optimised for long range performance; are designed to be robust in the complex RF environments of major event security and give the user the ability to exercise the full sovereign control necessary.

J2 Universal Toolkit is a commercial off the shelf software for the design, analysis and modelling of fixed wing aircraft in core design, simulation, flight test and air accident investigation applications. The J2 Universal Toolkit provides a design/modelling/analysis solution that can integrate any legacy data or code into a powerful analytical engine, enhancing the visualisation, speed and fidelity of the aircraft analysis/evaluation process. J2 aircraft models can be flown in any simulator platform from desktop to full mission simulators and can be changed and evaluated in real time. The Universal Toolkit can put a pilot in the loop at any stage in an evaluation process, testing and running handling variations and operational changes, accelerating the move towards certification. J2 already delivers accelerated design process and reductions in re-work. In Flight Test the j2 software can dramatically cut the flight matching phase and can be used as a fligh ttest rehearsal toolset also. Most recently j2 Universal Toolkit has been adopted in air accident flight physics based investigations and this has already been recognised through the announcement of key US based alliances with technical leaders in both Air accident investigation and fligh test programme delivery.
