Research and development

As the UK’s National Technical Authority for technical security, we carry out research and development of new threats and countermeasures technologies

For over 75 years, we’ve worked closely with UK government departments and Friendly Foreign Governments to keep technical equipment safe from attack.

UK NACE has a track record of identifying, developing and implementing innovative tools and countermeasures.

Surveillance technology is now reaching new heights in its accessibility, capability and concealment. So we look to work collaboratively to tackle modern technical threats.

Using our deep historic knowledge of tradecraft and active field deployment, alongside the application of scientific principles, we endeavour to evolve our detection and mitigation techniques for the modern threats we face.

From applied scientific theory and proof of concept through to engineering partnerships, we create products and countermeasures techniques to match and mitigate current operational attack methods.
