What we do
Doing the unseen. Venturing into the unknown. Working under the radar to maintain our nation’s peace and keep food on our tables.
Maintaining peace & stability
Our dominant presence on the world stage sends a powerful message: we’re present, active and ready to do what we need to deter any aggressors.
You might not see what we do. You probably won’t hear about it. But you can rest assured we’re working 24/7, 365 days a year to protect our nation’s peace.
Safeguarding global trade
50% of the UK’s food and fuel is imported by sea, and 97% of our data is transferred under it, so protecting the seas is critical to keeping UK citizens fed and connected.
We play a critical role in acting as a constant deterrent, protector and enabler of trade - supporting the British economy to thrive and our people to survive.
Ready to act
Our global positioning and unique structure means we have the right resources in the right places to constantly gather intelligence, eliminate threats and support the enforcement of UN resolutions.
If an enemy acts, we’re ready for combat at a moment’s notice.
