QinetiQ and the United Kingdom’s Carrier Strike Programme

Carrier Strike Group Returns to the UK
In December 2021, the Carrier Strike Group returned from its maiden voyage around the globe, covering 500,000 nautical miles and 4,723 flight hours. We have been following its journey below and have highlighted our involvement with preparing the group for success.  We look forward to continuing our work with Defence on developing the capabilities of the UK’s Carrier Strike Group as well as helping the Royal Navy with its exciting future programmes.
