Cohort is the parent company of six innovative, agile and responsive businesses providing a wide range of services and products for British, Portuguese, German and international customers in defence and related markets. It aims to add real value through the experience and contacts of its senior team while providing a light-touch but effective governance framework. Its objective is to deliver value to shareholders through its six operating subsidiaries: Chess, EID, ELAC SONAR, MASS, MCL and SEA.
