our services


Founded in 2016, Cerberus Nuclear brings together highly specialist skills and industry-wide experience to offer comprehensive Radiation Shielding, Criticality Safety and Nuclear Characterisation services for the Civil Nuclear, Medical, Research and Defence sectors.

In addition to a senior team with a wealth of experience, we have strong links to universities and an established graduate training programme. As a small, independent company, we have grown into one of the largest suppliers of criticality and shielding expertise in the UK.

Our mission is to provide high quality technical solutions with an emphasis on creativity and innovation. We achieve this by being an exemplary employer of talented individuals.

We invest in training and development and provide dedicated time for our exceptional team to work on research and development projects. As well as enhancing our internal systems and processes, some of these in-house projects have led to big advancements like our internationally recognised criticality training software CARTA™ and the creation of our subsidiary Orthrus Software, which hosts Cyclone™, a new way to create and process Monte Carlo models.

Criticality safety can be complicated; there are many physical factors that determine the ‘k-effective’ of a system (i.e. if it can become ‘critical’). Our desktop and VR software combines physically accurate modelling and machine learning in a Virtual Reality (VR) or Desktop environment to provide trainers with a fantastic tool to engage with all levels of trainee. It is unique from anything else on the market as it is underpinned by accurate Monte Carlo modelling.
We offer two ready-made CARTA simulations, which will provide immediate enhancements to existing training courses. We also offer bespoke development of training scenarios tailored to our clients needs. We are able to model fissile systems with accuracy, both in terms of their physical behaviour and appearance.
