Maritime Integration and Support Centre (MISC)

VolkerFitzpatrick upgrades BAE Systems’ Maritime Integration and Support Centre (MISC) at Portsdown Technology Park in Portsmouth.

  • New build extension 
  • Two-storey steel frame
  • Concrete pad foundations

  • New visitor and VIP entrance
  • Meeting and conference rooms
  • Open-plan offices, with breakout spaces
  • Welfare provision
  • New landscaping and car parking facilities

The extension to our Maritime Integration Support Centre will allow BAE Systems at Portsdown Technology Park to evolve, as we support not only the Royal Navy’s Type 45, Type 26 and QEC Platforms of today, but also the autonomous systems and artificially intelligent capability that the customer is demanding as we move into the coming decades. It will provide an environmentally friendly, flexible and attractive place to work and collaborate with third-parties, as we collectively deliver the technology and capabilities the customer needs for the future.
