Jack Otter


Since leaving university Jack gained a place on the Denis Ferranti graduate scheme where he was mentored by one of the company directors to develop as a professional engineer in the defence industry. Through commitment to the business and the developing marine pyrotechnic range the Institute of Mechanical Engineers recognised the level of professionalism with Chartered and Fellow status.

One of the most engaging projects Jack has led is the development of an air to surface marine Pyrotechnic flare which is safe to be deployed from a range of helicopters and aircraft. It is used to mark marine points of interest, assist landing aircraft in adverse weather conditions and used in anti-submarine.
