The threat landscape is constantly evolving - more sophisticated aircraft are being developed, the use of UAVs is growing, electronic warfare and swarm tactics are on the increase, and supersonic, anti-ship missiles are becoming prolific. Moreover, it may seem impossible to keep pace, with the addition of the emergence of anti-ship ballistic missiles and new hypersonic threats in development.

Based in Medicine Hat, Alberta, QinetiQ Target Systems (QTS) produces numerous cost-effective naval, aerial, and land-based target systems for QinetiQ’s Canadian customers and approximately 40 customers around the world. QTS is an integral part of QinetiQ’s strategy to modernize test and evaluation for customers and drive the growth of its core capabilities in international markets.

QinetiQ is committed to optimizing customers’ operational capabilities through the creation of realistic scenarios, rigorous testing, and live exercises. Low-cost supersonic targets like the Rattler (launched from QinetiQ’s jet Banshee aerial platform) represent the next generation of threats that customers can use to train against.

QinetiQ's target system offerings include fixed-wing and rotary airborne targets, land targets, remotely-operated surface vessels (e.g. fast attach and piracy threats), customized unmanned special mission vehicles, command and control systems, and teams, scoring systems, and launchers.
