Cambridge Consultants was founded in 1960 by three Cambridge University graduates – Tim Eiloart, Rodney Dale, and David Southward – to "put the brains of Cambridge University at the disposal of the problems of British industry".
Initially, the company was privately run. In 1971, it became part of Arthur D. Little (ADL), an American management consultancy firm. In 2002, following ADL's process through Chapter 11, Cambridge Consultants management team acquired the company with the backing of Altran, a global innovation and engineering consulting firm.
Technology innovations include a drone delivery service, machine learning solutions, fitness-enhancing clothing, holographic radar and airborne antenna that will provide widescale 5G coverage.
