AWE plays a crucial role in national defence. They have been at the forefront of the UK nuclear deterrence programme for more than 60 years. Supporting the UK's Continuous At Sea Deterrence programme and national nuclear security are at the heart of what we do.
Our team of world-renowned scientists, engineers and specialists undertake critical work, providing and maintaining warheads for Royal Navy submarines – everything from design and manufacture to in-service support and decommissioning.
AWE is a unique national asset. Their programme of work is to ensure the UK has, and continues to have, a Continuous At Sea Deterrent as defined by Government policy and the decisions that were made in the Strategic Defence and Security Review 2010.
