What is Innovation?

Innovation is the category with one of the widest scopes within the Excellence Rankings as it looks at novel new approaches in every area, from the fruits of research and development to novel new business practices. What all the ranked entities have in common is the demonstration of new concepts not just within their own business but in the sector as a whole.

The category includes any projects that demonstrate an innovative approach to the market. The category crosses over with many of our other categories and can include new products, novel product features, new business practices, new marketing and sales strategies and more.


The companies ranked below have been at the forefront of bringing innovations to combat and maintenance for the naval and naval aviation sectors. 

During the research period we have seen the development of anti-corrosion systems, as well as combat management systems, providing operational integrity, easing command manoeuvrability and ensuring combat effectiveness both for fleet and drone management and weapons flexibility. 


When it comes to naval operations, detecting corrosion is crucial both in sea and air operations and the companies in this category have been working on innovative new systems.

Managing combat operations on water and air can be a daunting task. The companies in this category have been working hard to provide systems that effectively guide weapons systems as well as manage vessel and drone manoeuvres.
