When industry, government and defence professionals from across the Indo-Asia-Pacific region converge on Sydney next week for the Pacific International Maritime Exposition, we will be on site showcasing our capabilities and products in the fields of advanced engineering, complex test & evaluation and combat training & rehearsal.
As part of the support team behind Project LAND 121 Phase 3B, QinetiQ is assisting Defence in the acquisition and sustainment of approximately 2700 medium and heavy vehicles along with associated modules and approximately 1700 trailers. Recently, QinetiQ launched an Industry leading graduate program to ensure the critical skill sets required for the future are on hand when they are needed most.
On 21 August 2019 – the date that marked the 45th Anniversary of its first flight – the Hawk XX154 aircraft was airlifted from MOD Boscombe Down, where until December 2018 it was in active service with the Empire Test Pilots’ School (ETPS), to its new home in the Boscombe Down Aviation Collection at Old Sarum Airfield.

Were you stuck in traffic this morning? Looking for a quicker and less stressful journey to work? Last year QinetiQ engineers helped a group of University of Adelaide Honours students to solve the problem of peak-hour traffic, as they designed, tested and prototyped a Vertical Take-off and Landing (VTOL) Electric Commuter Transport On Request solution.
In today’s fast-changing world you have to innovate and adapt quickly to keep ahead. At Avalon 2019, we will be showcasing our capabilities and products in research and experimentation, test and evaluation, training and rehearsal, and aircraft structural integrity.
QinetiQ recently collaborated with four of the University of Melbourne’s School of Engineering masters students, as part of a student/industry (Capstone) project aimed at finding a solution to the unreliability of autonomous vehicles. Alongside QinetiQ experts, the mechanical engineering and mechatronics students designed a distributed coverage algorithm suitable for a fleet of vehicles equipped with local sensing and communication capabilities.
