UK owned and UK based, we are dynamic and customer driven cellular engineering subject matter experts. Our products are designed not only to meet customer requirements but to be industry leading and disruptive. Such as our award winning ARTEMIS mobile phone detection, location and communication system for Search & Rescue.


Extensive qualification testing to ensure the highest operational availability in the most rigorous operational environments.


Solutions for every platform from ground based to small UAS and large manned aircraft. All based around the same core electronics.

Industry Leading Speed

Our systems can deal with thousands of handsets per minute offering the user industry leading speed and mass-mapping/geofence features.


Traditional Direction Finding can be slow, inaccurate and require multiple antennas. Our systems geolocate handsets quickly and accurately over extended ranges using our two independent and proprietary geolocation techniques.

Hardware Integration

All of our systems require only two small antennas, one transmit and one receive. This makes integration simple and economical when compared to systems that rely on older direction finding techniques with antenna arrays.

Software Integration

We have one API document that covers all systems for Mission System and Sensor Integration. Existing integrations exist for CarteNav AIMS ISR (see above), Teledyne FLIR and many others. Our team is standing by to help you with your integration.


Our Roots

Smith Myers Communications Ltd was formed in 1987 from the design partnership of Tony Smith and Peter Myers, both previously engaged as freelance design engineers. That same year saw the launch of the first in a series of radically different test and measurement equipment for the new burgeoning cellular radio market. Intuitive and easy to use, the equipment’s simple user interface masked the complexity of cellular radio technology and protocols. Ease of use became the hall mark of Smith Myers equipment, and even today the user friendly interface offers the professional user the tools to achieve their mission goals in difficult environments.

Our Values

We’re an engineering-led company with a laser sharp focus on our customers. We promote a culture within our business that allows our engineers to design outside of their comfort zone in order to create truly disruptive products and capabilities. We are passionate about excellence and doing our work right the first time. Our reputation depends on our delivered value in the eyes of every customer. Promoting an environment where innovation is the norm. We develop and apply world-class technology and process. We listen, learn, and seek out the best ideas. We attack complacency and continually improve.

Respect & Integrity

We treat people with respect and dignity. Listen actively. Communicate in a timely and forthright manner. Never undermine colleagues and exercise the highest level of professional and ethical behaviour.

Rigorous & Resolute

Sometimes simple is better than clever and we value well-communicated, critical analysis of our processes and products. While we use metrics to make good decisions we are never beholding to them.


We take accountability and own long-term outcomes. Consider impact for the entire company, beyond a specific team, product, or individual. Never say “it is not my job”.

Build Trust

We build positive, long-term relationships with our customers, joint-venture partners, subcontractors, suppliers, and colleagues that are built on trust, respect, and collaboration.

Always be Growing

We stretch ourselves, experiment, seek and deliver actionable feedback, listen, learn from failure, and demonstrate resilience. Try new things. Be balanced and accurate evaluators of our actions.

Curiosity & Bias for Action

Curiosity pushes each of us to dive deep, innovate, improve, and discover. Never stop learning. Act with deliberate speed and initiative. Take calculated risks to move forward and iterate.
