About RED

Who We Are

RED Scientific Limited (RED) is a long established, privately owned, independent consultancy. We provide technical, managerial and scientific support to a wide range of customers that include defence, industry and central government & its agencies.  Our on-line Quality Management System is accredited to ISO 9001: 2015.

Formed in 1990, RED has grown from a niche operational analysis and modelling company into a broad-based consultancy supporting our customers’ domain and technical specialist requirements. RED’s current capabilities include:

In addition to our own technical staff, our available resources include a large pool of individual associates, teaming arrangements with other relevant organisations and strong links with a number of UK universities. This model allows us to combine the core attributes of a Small to Medium-sized Enterprise (SME) – customer focus, agility, flexibility and value for money – with the technical & specialist skills and footprint more usually associated with much larger organisations.

You can find out more in the working with RED section of the site, where you can also explore teaming options and apply to become a RED associate.
