Introduction to QinetiQ
Download our summary presentation.
We are a leading science and engineering company operating primarily in the defence and security markets. We are an information, knowledge and technology based company with the breadth and depth of more than 6,500 highly dedicated employees.
We apply our unique technical expertise across the product life-cycle, helping our customers to create, test and use defence and security capabilities. Not only do we develop cutting-edge technology and turn it into a capability, we also tell customers if that capability will work when it is critically needed and ensure they are trained and operationally ready to use it when it matters.
Anticipating the current, emerging and future threat environment and proactively understanding our customers’ needs to provide mission-led innovation is critical to our success.
QinetiQ is dedicated to protecting lives, defending sovereign capability and securing the vital interests of our customers.
We are a global company delivering mission-led innovation around the world. Our home countries, where we have more than 500 people in-country are the UK, US and Australia. We also have a significant in-country presence in Canada, Germany and Belgium.
Many of our facilities around the world are unique assets that are critical to maintaining national defence capabilities, and are often the only place where certain trials can take place.
We report through two divisions; EMEA Services and Global Products. Within these two divisions our business units are aligned to customer domains or geographies.
Good progress with strong second-half momentum.
Positioning ourselves for long-term sustainable global growth.
We focus on partnering with our customers, to deliver mission-led innovation through the six distinctive offerings shown below.
We optimise our capabilities internally, through leveraging our technology and engineering solutions globally; so that we can maximise growth opportunities externally, through single routes to market in six home and priority countries. By applying this operating model, we are scaling our company and accelerating our global growth.
An example of how this approach is driving growth from our distinctive offering of test & evaluation: In the UK we committed £400m of capital investment to modernise the LTPA’s key capabilities.
By focusing on our customers’ needs and evaluating all investment opportunities with the same rigour, we aim to deliver sustainable and attractive returns to our shareholders.
