Test & Evaluation: Proven Performance at Farnborough Airshow


Cathy O'Carroll - Group Director Test & Evaluation

Farnborough Airshow is fast approaching and we are excited that Test and Evaluation will be one of our four key areas.

Rocket launch

Our theme for Farnborough International Airshow (FIA) this year is ‘Make Agility Your Advantage’, but how does Test & Evaluation fit into this?

Test & Evaluation (T&E) is critical to ensuring modern high performing and complex defence systems are operationally effective, safe and suitable for their use by our armed services. In today’s climate of financial challenges and rapid evolution of technology, agility and pace are critical to ensuring that T&E activity is sharply focussed on the critical questions and provides essential evidence when needed.

We remain at the forefront of T&E, operating some of the most advanced land, sea and air ranges in the world. Now, we’re combining our ability to manage live tests and exercises with the benefits of digital infrastructure, integrating synthetic elements to increase the level of operational realism and ensure more rapid, accurate evaluation and even greater technical collaboration between partners than ever before.

At FIA this year, we’ll be showcasing a number of our services and products through an interactive experience zone to demonstrate how we are leading the way in T&E.

This zone will feature:

  • Complex trials management and delivery including Formidable Shield 17
  • Our T&E management system and the facilities and ranges that we operate
  • QinetiQ Target Systems

Over the next week, we’ll be sharing further insight into our T&E offering across our channels and a flavour of what we’ll be showcasing at the airshow.
