Innovative engineering for the world’s most challenging sectors

Digital Concepts Engineering specialises in the design, development and production of robotic control systems and unmanned vehicles

Keeping people out of harm's way

The world is full of hazardous working environments endangering worker’s safety and health. DCE’s robotic and remotely controlled technology enables machines to go into risky locations, work with toxic materials/atmospheres, and undertake tasks that would be difficult, dangerous and potentially unhealthy.

DCE’s solutions and products are currently used across defence, nuclear, health and agriculture sectors but have wide applicability into aligned sectors where keeping people out of harm’s way is a constant challenge.

The MarionetteUniversal Control System is at the heart of DCE’s solutions. Learn more about how its application has enabled autonomous working across a range of sectors on the case studies pages.
