Support to the Royal UK Navy

For a recent call for support an out of the box approach was needed. Instead of being challenged by logistic delays caused by Brexit, we decided to team up with Drumgrange rather than having a CRPA unit sent back and forth for service.

In short time, we trained Drumgrange engineers and monitored their service tasks from remote. Doing so, the Royal UK Navy could have the unit back in operation just in time.

We have got very kind feedback from UK MoD/DE&S:

The situation has now significantly improved and you have been instrumental in this, owing to your outstanding engineering and testing expertise in this area.

I wanted to reach out and thank you personally, as without your recent support, we would not be in the position we are in now where we have been able to overcome obstacles.

As it takes two to tango: thank you Drumgrange, for the open mind and smooth cooperation!

ISO 9001:2015, first inspection

Like we all experience, a quality management systems need to be updated and checked frequently. Updates and checks are performed on the fly, and on a daily basis. To keep certification, the yearly external audit by TÜV Rheinland was planned in December.

This year, we consulted Quattor P to prepare for the audit. After examination of our quality system, which has our ERP as a backbone, their lead auditor confirmed to be ready for the external audit.

Finally the audit by TÜV took place, which passed without any flaws.

As very first guests in our new premises in Bodegraven (even not fully furnished yet) we were most happy to welcome a delegation representing HAVELSAN for testing the DGPS feature of our NGNS07 MIL GPS host system.

HAVELSAN is one of the most important solution providers of the Turkish Armed Forces. The solutions developed by HAVELSAN are competitive in the world market as well. Among these solutions, the Command Control and Combat Systems developed for naval platforms have helped HAVELSAN become a significant player in the global market.

SkyDec supplied several types of MIL GPS host systems to HAVELSAN over the years, for a variety of Naval programs.
During this particular test, proper functioning of the DGPS feature was confirmed successfully. The unit under test was also programmed with latest release software.

We thank HAVELSAN for their constructive contribution during this meeting and the high level cooperation as business partners in general.
