QinetiQ welcomed the crew of HMS OARDACIOUS to its Haslar Maritime Technology Park in Gosport last Friday prior to the crew’s departure for the Canary Islands and their month-long row across the Atlantic.
On October 4th, QinetiQ celebrated its new cleanroom in Kruibeke, Belgium. Belgian astronaut Frank De Winne opened the €3m facilities at an event that also included representatives from local and national authorities, the European Space Agency (ESA), and QinetiQ staff.
The Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier International Airport Authority (the Airport Authority) is pleased to announce that it has partnered with NAV CANADA and QinetiQ Canada to trial the company’s Obsidian Counter UAS System at YOW (Ottawa’s international airport).
QinetiQ announces that it has entered into an agreement to acquire Manufacturing Techniques Inc. (MTEQ) on a cash-free, debt-free basis for $105 million to be paid in cash on completion and an earn-out of up to $20 million payable in cash and shares dependent on delivering stretching financial targets over three years.
QinetiQ Australia, working collaboratively with RMIT and Defence Science and Technology Group (DST), is to deliver research on advanced composite joint technology for the Department of Defence. The research will enhance the integration of composites onto Defence platforms.
In 2019, QinetiQ will raise funds for Legacy with a group of QinetiQ trekkers walking the Kokoda Trail in Papua New Guinea later this year. But they won’t be alone – the other 380 people employed by QinetiQ Australia will also have the opportunity to contribute to this goal; by tracking their daily steps, fundraising and competing in tournaments to try and match the gruelling kilometres that their colleagues will achieve.
QinetiQ's strategic investment into Inzpire Group Limited is now complete and is set to deliver a revolution in warfighting capability and operational readiness. This investment complements QinetiQ’s global capabilities, and offers significant capability to Australia’s Defence Force.
