Welcome - Jim Graham, Managing Director, QinetiQ's Space Business 

Over 100 mission-years in orbit delivering observation, platforms, science, navigation, propulsion, and secure communications support across military, security and civil space sectors

Over the past few years, different members of the team in QinetiQ’s space business have produced a series of blogs describing their work and activities in support of the company’s ever-increasing range of space programmes. The popularity of our ‘Postcards from Space’ blogs has prompted us to publish the full collection in a special compendium for the first time. This new publication provides a glimpse of the specialist skills and breadth of expertise that has underpinned our success in the space sector over the past six decades. It also gives an indication of the passion and great sense of personal pride that shines brightly in every corner of the business as we rise to new challenges that are truly at the cutting edge of space technologies, research and exploration.

A common thread through all of the ‘Postcards’ is just how much can be achieved through effective partnership and collaboration. Whether it’s extending the capabilities and possibilities of human space exploration, improving the performance and potential of satellite technology or the development of increasingly sophisticated systems integration and space experimentation, QinetiQ is continuing to lead by example. Our commitment to mission-led innovation means that our focus is on those areas, those processes and those technologies that make a significant and measurable difference to our customers.

With our specialist teams working closely with a growing list of like-minded partners, the ‘Postcards from Space’ demonstrate how we are delivering the best possible operational outcomes for customers and end users across all areas of our space business. They also help to explain why everyone here at QinetiQ is looking to the future with a great deal of enthusiasm and excitement as, we know from our own experience, there is no limit on the possibilities, achievements and discoveries that lie ahead.
