Commander Milly Ingham, of Portsmouth’s 1st Patrol Boat Squadron stated, “The Royal Navy has been at the leading edge of technology in defence for hundreds of years – we’re proud of our traditions but we continue to explore new ideas and concepts and push the boundaries of naval warfare. The opportunity to work with Gravity Industries has offered the chance to continue our support of the British science and technology industry.”
