A Secure Environment

Westcott provides a secure, controlled environment within 650 acres of open space available within the estate. The site is situated in a rural area with poor terrestrial coverage, allowing for testing of new infrastructure without the risk of causing interference to existing systems.

The location also offers a significant variety of local geographical features that can be used to validate novel concepts of operation and operational technology.
