Techmodal will create a data science delivery cell with the Royal Navy’s Digital Services (NDS) division to help the Royal Navy to be a fully digital organisation by 2023.

The cell will work with NDS and Dstl data scientists to provide the Royal Navy with operational advantage and will drive a digital culture, underpinned by support and knowledge transfer from industry experts Adarga, Capgemini, Geollect and Rebellion Defence.

This team is centred on Techmodal’s expertise and track record of delivery, creating a cutting-edge transformative data science provider that can be relied on to deliver at scale.

It will offer NDS agile delivery with specialist artificial intelligence (AI) analytics, cyber expertise and geospatial intelligence knowledge.

Gareth Vaughan, Managing Director at Techmodal says, “Winning this work is a fantastic outcome for the Techmodal team. We are looking forward to getting stuck into tasks that will rapidly deliver lasting benefit to the Royal Navy by unleashing the potential of their data.”

Techmodal works with defence, industry and public sector clients, using their own data to transform their operations from the trained state of their people or condition of their vehicle fleet to the efficiency of their supply chain, and since it was founded in 2005 its roots have been firmly established within the Defence sector. The company also supports the wider Armed Forces community, particularly within the general population, such as Reservists and veterans.

Last year, the team was recognised by Minister for Defence People and Veterans for supporting Armed Forces personnel in its workplace, receiving a Defence Employer Recognition Scheme Gold Award.

Techmodal employs more than 150 market experts, data scientists, consultants and systems analysts at its Bristol and London offices, using ingenuity and innovative technology to uncover the data needed to drive lasting organisational change.

With a workplace emphasis on teamwork, Techmodal encourages extra-curricular sporting activities, such as entering the recent Solider3030 challenge in Exmoor in support of FirstLight Trust for Veterans. The business also regularly sponsors military sporting and fitness events, raising money for Armed Forces charities.
