TADE UK is now comprised of 8 distinct business units, including Teledyne CML Composites; Teledyne Defence & Space; Teledyne Defence Australia; Teledyne Energetics UK; Teledyne Labtech Limited; Teledyne Lincoln Microwave; Teledyne Paradise Datacom; and Teledyne Reynolds UK.

Teledyne Energetics UK designs and develops solutions for the safety, arming, and initiation technology sector, in particular military energetic devices from components through to complete systems. Some of the flagship product lines include active vehicle safety systems; sea mine fuzes; modular artillery fuzes; flight termination units; electronic Safe & Arm Units (eSAUs); and electronic Ignition Safety Devices (eISDs).

“By joining the Teledyne Defense & Aerospace Electronics UK family of companies under our own new Teledyne brand, we believe Energetics UK can better define our capabilities to customers as we execute go-to-market strategies,” said Brion Weller, General Manager of Teledyne Energetics UK. “We can now better leverage the complementary technologies and global sales presence of our fellow TADE UK business units to grow our business opportunities globally.”

Originally part of the Teledyne e2v family, the new Teledyne Energetics UK has been active in safety, arming, and initiation technology since 1984. Building on the existing high speed switch tube technology, early development activity began with Exploding Foil Initiator (EFI) technology in conjunction with RARDE (now QinetiQ and Dstl).

Today, Teledyne Energetics UK supplies eSAU and eISD units to over 27 active weapons systems, including missiles, torpedoes, and Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) systems for warhead initiation and rocket motor ignition.

Teledyne Energetics also delivers a range of services to its global customer base. Design services include modelling and testing of fully packaged circuitry for control and initiation of detonators. For manufacturing and test, the Energetics UK facility in Lincoln is licensed to store and test explosives and is certified for BS-EN-ISO 9001:2015, BS-EN-ISO 14001:2015, and BS-EN-ISO45001:2018.
