Advance Alert Service

QinetiQ is always looking for ways to improve communications between the Range at MOD Shoeburyness and the public and we often receive requests for details of our forthcoming programme. We have responded by introducing an Advance Alert Service which provides advance notice of those activities which may be more noticeable from time to time.

Although we will endeavour to notify you when such activities are scheduled, please note that they are subject to not only the daily acoustic forecast, but also to tide times, weather conditions and operational requirements. Any one, or a combination of these factors may mean that the activity has to be postponed and rescheduled at short notice and it may not always be possible to provide you with an updated schedule of work.
