Beadwindow has an international reputation as an established provider of bespoke solutions that meet the specific operational needs of naval personnel in an ever-changing world. Beadwindow’s mission is to provide professional services that make operations easier for at-sea servicemen.

Supporting naval personnel through capability development and programme implementation

The wealth of knowledge a warfighter can bring to any naval capability development, acquisition, and sustainment programme simply cannot be underestimated. Their involvement should be sought and their perspective is crucial, because they will be the ones who have deal with the results first-hand.

We know that no-one is more knowledgeable or aware of circumstances or requirements on the frontline than the warfighter. When new combat systems or naval shipbuilding programmes are introduced without speaking to naval personnel, they get justifiably irritated.

That’s where we step in. We advocate the seagoing warfighter, without any interference from rank, process or politicians.

A basic level of training is no good for the naval warfighter, we ensure that personnel are trained comprehensively so that they can succeed in whatever operational situation they find themselves in. Wikimedia Commons / Open Government Licence / Alamy / iStockphoto / Dmitry Shulgin.
