Defence & Aerospace

Using our motorsport expertise to rapidly bridge the “innovation gap” between initial concept and production.

Wirth Research applies specialist innovation, creative design and cutting-edge engineering expertise to solve a range of defence and aerospace challenges. Our motorsport-derived ability for rapid concept development allows us to generate solutions at a pace most defence suppliers are unable to match. In one project, Wirth Research moved from Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 3 to TRL 6 in under six months. Achieving this in such a short space of time is testament to our skill, expertise and cutting-edge technological applications. By applying both our Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) capability and our motorsport mindset, we have been instrumental in projects as diverse as improving helicopter ancillary equipment aerodynamics to developing a range of high-endurance Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV’s).
