The Janes stamp of trust means supplying our customers with timely, validated, unbiased and relevant intelligence in a world crowded with increasingly unreliable information. With an unmatched legacy of more than 120 years, Janes has adapted, expanded, and developed its unique tradecraft while transitioning from a traditional military publisher to the leading global agency for open-source defense intelligence.

Janes was started by naval enthusiast Fred T. Jane in 1898 to document the world’s fighting ships. Janes has since evolved into a provider of unique, proprietary open-source data, with a global team of almost 400 subject matter experts delivering analysis spanning 41,000 pieces of equipment across air, land and sea, and more than 600,000 events that impact risk or security. Janes became an independent business in December 2019 under the ownership of Montagu Private Equity.
