What makes up a team capable of collecting, validating, analysing and reporting on the ever-increasing global explosive threats? On Optima’s acquisition of Triton, a team of world class analysts and practitioners were put together. The Triton team, supported by the latest Open Source Intelligence Collation software, supports Optima’s aim of projecting Triton as the global leader in open source explosive intelligence.

The ever-growing Triton team is headed up by a vastly experienced management group, predominately ex-military and intelligence services personnel, who have first-hand technical expertise. 

Duncan Young - Triton Lead

Duncan was already employed by Optima as a Principal IED Consultant when Triton was procured. Duncan with his experience in Improvised Explosive Device Disposal (IEDD) and Intelligence was the natural choice to lead in the development and re-launch of Triton. Duncan comes from a 20 year career with the British Army as an IEDD Operator at all levels. As the lead of Triton, Duncan is responsible for the overall management of Triton which also includes business and client development.
