This West Sussex firm supplies electro-optical surveillance systems to the military and defence industries, including the navy’s aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth. Its Sea Eagle and Hawkeye systems provide 24-hour surveillance, target identification, thermal imaging and long-range video imaging, and are capable of controlling weapons. Growth has been helped by demand for its anti-drone equipment. Managing director David Tuddenham, 41, established a US subsidiary last year, helping exports hit £8.6m.
