Congresswoman Lori Trahan Visits QinetiQ Inc to Tour Latest Robotics
Job security and availability are also important to Rep. Trahan – three years ago when QinetiQ Inc opened a facility in Devens, MA, she attended to cut the grand opening ribbon, ushering in QinetiQ’s first full-time presents at Devens.
Rep. Trahan recently returned to QinetiQ Inc to tour some of the robotics offerings presented on Fort Devens south post military training range, where she was provided program overviews on various QinetiQ robotics solutions, all of which support efforts by the warfighter and first responders.
Not only did the QinetiQ team demonstrate autonomous robotics navigation and reconnaissance specialties, they also demonstrated a rail automation program for Rep. Trahan. The Congresswoman is particularly interested in bringing innovative safety to rail industry.
QinetiQ has helped to create high quality, highly technical, sustainable jobs in the Devens Economic Development zone, which has struggled since the Fort Devens north post Army installation was closed in 1996. QinetiQ programs not only support vital national defense, but also contribute to a region that is rich in military history.
“We are honored to provide products and services that protect the lives of our men and women in uniform, as well as first responders,” said Dan Deguire, Vice President of Land Systems for QinetiQ Inc. “Operating in a district represented by such an involved Congresswoman means that we are more effective and more responsive – that makes the work we do even more meaningful.”
Rep. Trahan has helped sponsor vital programs for the U.S. Marine Corps and U.S. Army, and understanding the products and services like those at QinetiQ helps her to advocate in Washington for critical resources needed to keep critical programs healthy.
