QinetiQ Canada ranked one of the country’s most impactful defence companies


QinetiQ Canada has been recognised as one of the country’s Top 10 defence companies by the prestigious Canadian Defence Review (CDR).


The annual CDR Top 75 ranking is compiled by an evaluation panel made up from members of the magazine’s editorial staff and independent advisors. They base their decisions on factors such as economic impact to the country, R&D initiatives, innovation, contribution to the nation's security, contract wins, excellence of management and support of Canada’s military.

With head offices in Ottawa and Medicine Hat, Alberta, alongside operations in Calgary, Victoria and Halifax, QinetiQ has a long-standing relationship with Canada’s military, as well as a number of research institutions.

QinetiQ Target Systems is renowned within the market as a leader in the field of unmanned air, land and sea targets. In addition to supporting the Canadian Targets Programme, it manages special mission unmanned systems and live-fire training exercises for clients. R&D activities include a collaboration with the National Science and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) that enables partnerships with universities across the country.

QinetiQ in Canada has benefited from sharing its global network of engineering and business development expertise across the QinetiQ Group. The team in Canada has a staff of almost 100, and offers a broadened product range. Export activities are increasing, with 60% of revenues now earned from outside Canada, from markets including South Korea, the Middle East, Japan and the US.

QinetiQ will be on Booth #414 during CANSEC (30-31 May), at the EY Center, Ottawa.&
