From single missions to small constellations, we work closely with customers to deliver robust, customised and highly efficient space satellites.

Spacecraft and Subsystems

We design and manufacture avionics for spacecraft and launcher re-entry vehicles and are also the prime contractor for the development of the International Berthing and Docking Mechanism (IBDM) for large and small spacecraft. We also offer an extensive range of consultancy services covering all of our core capabilities as well as harnessing our specialist expertise and insight in electric propulsion technologies.

Communications & Security

The critical national infrastructures of most nations depend on space security. We are at the forefront of research and technology in this area and have the depth of experience, expertise and insight to provide secure and resilient space solutions for all of our civil, military and national security customers.

Our ‘software defined radio’ capability, for example, underpins Deep Space Communications and Secured Navigation as well as Software Defined Multifunction LIDAR (SDML) technology. QinetiQ have also developed SDR products to meet the demanding processing requirements of current and future wideband Satellite Communication waveforms; our Beaufort product securely demodulates and decodes standard and non-standard Satcom transmissions.
