CCP Grandsen eyes performance improvements for Thales product
Newtownards-based CCP Gransden revealed on 3 September that it is collaborating with Thales and Ulster University in the first approved Defence Technology Exploitation Programme (DTEP) in the UK.
Work in the 18-month programme includes replacing an existing metallic canister with an advanced composite canister in a specialist defence product.
The DTEP project will see performance improvements provided through a new advanced composite canister system to upgrade ‘another high-value product’ in the Thales defence portfolio.
CCP Grandsen, Thales and Ulster University previously worked on a project connected with the Thales Starstreak missile canister that led to a full production contract for CCP Grandsen in 2018.
