Company Profile

Martin-Baker is the world's longest established and most experienced manufacturer of ejection seats and related equipment. The Company has also developed a range of special crashworthy seats for helicopters and a range of fixed-wing crew and mission seats that can be fitted in most maritime patrol and reconnaissance aircraft.

Martin-Baker has headquarters in Denham (England) and locations in France, Italy, and the United States. The Companys' recent ejection seat designs use an on-board electronic sequencer to sense various factors such as speed and altitude to optimise control of the operation of the seat. The latest Mk16 range of seats has been competitively selected for the Raytheon T-6, Korean Aerospaces KT-1 and T-50, Pilatus PC-21, Northrop T-38 and F-5, Aermacchi M-346, Dassault Rafale, Eurofighter Typhoon and the F-35 Lightning II.

Backed by over 60 years of experience, Martin-Baker has saved over 7,400 aircrew lives in 93 Air Forces around the world.
