Company Overview

Stirling has over 25 years in the design and development of control systems and provision of technical services for the defence and aerospace market.

Of relevance to SEA 1000 is Stirling's capability in submarine systems where we are the current supplier of the safety-critical steering, diving and hover control software for the UK's Astute class submarine.

Prior to that Stirling has supported 10 worldwide navies in the design and test of a wide range of submarines from the German Type U214, and other diesel electric boats, through to the UK's Trafalgar class.

In addition to these control systems Stirling has developed whole-boat simulation models to support performance assessments and tuning.

To support the autopilot functionality Stirling has a range of active feedback control input devices, such as side-sticks and throttles which are used primarily in high-fidelity simulators for fixed wing and rotary wing aircraft. These control devices have recently been integrated into our FASC (Full Authority Submarine Control) system which is a technology demonstrator aimed at future platforms such as the UK's Successor project.
