QinetiQ’s long and successful history in space has been founded on the insight and specialist expertise of its growing team of scientists, engineers and researchers. Since its formative days, the team has pushed boundaries, opened new doors and harnessed new technologies to extend capabilities and improve performance of evermore complex and sophisticated spacecraft and systems. Significantly, however, the company continues to rise to new commercial challenges and opportunities with a strength and resolve founded on the successful delivery of so many innovative solutions that have not only helped to fulfil mission outcomes and stood the test of space travel... but also the test of time!
