About bigAPE


We are a software and technology-focused consultancy with extensive experience in Defence, Intelligence, and Media & Broadcasting.

Our expertise covers strategic and tactical-edge ISR, C4ISR integration, commercial and non-commercial orbital remote sensing, enterprise data management, and geospatial intelligence within the PED cycle. We provide support for collection, production, dissemination, machine analytics, and modeling pipelines for all-domain operation environments with projects across HA/DR, strategic, maritime, land, and air. We have developed a deep understanding of military & spatial data formats, metadata, and associated technologies.

Our business intelligence and research is based upon a proven skill set developed while working within global advertising / brand agencies from J Walter Thompson to DMB&B

We offer cleared personnel and a full range of vendor integration services. Our clients' and our nation's interest are always our primary concern.


bigAPE was founded in 1998 by two veterans of the UK media industry. One with twenty years of experience as a solutions architect in multi-channel television broadcasting and one with ten years of experience in advertising research and business intelligence.

For the past fifteen years, our focus has been on Defence and Federal Government projects within Australia across all Defence Force branches, National Security and Defence Intelligence programs.

Our employees call on trade-craft acquired working for large multi-national organisations engaged in complex multi-vendor, multi-client projects.

We have consulted in Europe, North America, and Australia.

Our Services

Defence & Federal

We provide services around multi-role, multi-service, and multi-national data exchange and systems integration employing common Defence metadata standards, with specific experience in ISR & geospatial intelligence. We have worked at the core of many long-running nationally significant defence and national intelligence projects across many Australian classified and unclassified networks. Contact us for further information and AGSVA clearances.


bigAPE has experience in many geospatial data formats and service standards through our integration work within geodesy and geospatial intelligence. Along with direct experience working with geographic, hydrographic, raster, and matrix data formats at the binary level, we have worked closely with, and developed implementations of, many common standards from OGC to Esri Geoservices.

Broadcast Systems

Calling upon over a twenty years of experience in European broadcast media, bigAPE offers systems integration and service deployment consulting in a wide range of broadcast technologies. With several major integration projects for international broadcasters behind us, we offer level a vendor-independent experience that clients find very refreshing.

Software & Architecture

We are experts at designing and implementing complex business systems, with over thirty years of experience implementing solutions from first principles within multi-vendor projects and are evangelical about quality and delivery, not a single vendor's tools.
