Design and Manufacture

Design -

We can undertake the design of custom hardware from electro-mechanical units to telecom and radio systems (RF) equipment. The design function can be development modelling to problem solving, including EMC consideration and printed circuit boards.

Manufacture -

 Following on from the design function we can produce hardware from our designs or to our customers specifications. As with design, we will manufacture "one-offs", up to production runs.
System rack construction and inter-connecting wiring is a speciality including aerospace racks. Complete system design and manufacture enables turnkey solutions.

We can also offer specialist metalwork manufacture (small component using CNC machinery to large steelwork).

Meet Lucas Projects

Lucas Projects is an engineering company largely experienced in telecommunications and custom electro-mechanical hardware design, construction and installation. Equipment production ranges from aerospace equipment to satellite broadcast to inkjet systems, and more.

Additionally the company undertakes large scale project site work at establishments such as satellite earth stations and broadcast stations. This work often involves the erection and dismantling of antennae and fitting out of ground based electronic equipment, manufactured by us or 3rd parties. These projects tend to be run as turnkey but can be tailored to suit.

Due to our extensive RF experience, Lucas Projects was contracted to work as radio Interference engineers at the 2012 London Olympics. The contract included the pre-start set-up phase as well as the Olympic and Para-Olympic games.
