A specialist airborne surveillance and training company in Bournemouth has gone into administration.

DO Systems Ltd is based at Hanger 62, Aviation Park East, Bournemouth Airport, Christchurch, Dorset.

It also has offices in Malta and is currently operating a number of contracts in the Middle East.

The administrators are now assessing the options for the business which was incorporated in April 2007.
