Here at QinetiQ, we are at the forefront of disruptive technology, delivering mission-critical solutions that respond to our customers’ needs at pace, across the defence, security and critical national infrastructure markets.

We have a deep understanding of the needs and future requirements of the UK MOD, currently supporting a number of vital missions and projects across all domains, adopting a mission-led innovation approach to harness new technology. Our focus markets are in four of the five eyes community, with an established US business and growing footprint in Australia and Canada, enabling vast collaboration opportunities across the globe. As world-leading experts in creating capability to solve complex problems, accelerating these to reality with advanced test and evaluation and providing the assurance to achieve competitive advantage, we have the solution for you.

Report: Enacting Prototype Warfare

Robotics and Autonomous Systems (RAS) technology is ‘now technology’ with immediate military utility which will evolve over time. Our detailed report explores the strategic logic for the military use of RAS, ethics, technology overview, implications and recommendations, alongside some use case scenarios.

Enacting Prototype Warfare
Our forces carry out tasks that are hazardous, costly or impractical for humans to undertake. Robotic and autonomous systems that operate in the maritime, land and air domains can provide significant operational advantage, while increasing safety, mission tempo and reducing the burden on troops, field workers, and first responders. We develop robots in a variety of sizes and with varying capabilities that provide protection and support to keep out of harm’s way.

Maritime Robotics & Autonomy

Our Maritime capabilities provide navies and subsea markets innovative solutions for command and control systems, undersea communications, sensors and robotics.

Land Robotics & Autonomy

Both military and commercial organisations carry out tasks that are hazardous, costly or impractical for humans to undertake.

We have a long heritage of research, experimentation and innovation across all domains. We offer a comprehensive approach to artificial intelligence and collaborative autonomy, from concept and design, through testing and evaluation, to platform integration; from training, safety and certification to vehicle support technologies.

The accelerating pace of technological developments will only serve to increase the role played by uncrewed vehicles and robots in delivering military capability. We see a wide range of new and developed applications – including those achieved by harnessing the power of multiple unmanned systems – operating together across environments.

TITAN Modular Unmanned Ground Vehicle

TITAN is a large Uncrewed Ground Vehicle (UGV) that provides safety and support for small dismounted military operations

TALON® Medium-Sized Tactical Robot

Since its introduction in 2000, our TALON® family of robots have earned a reputation for durability, flexibility, reliability and performance in keeping personnel, assets and civilians out of harm’s way.

SPUR next generation backpackable robot

The newest member of our interoperative tactical land robot family and the named winner of the Common Robotic System – Individual (CRS(I)) program by the US Army. SPUR revolutionizes robotic capability for dismounted forces with its rapid deployment from its stowed state, tactical mobility and radio range, high-performance manipulator arm and our proven UC-LITE universal controller.

Enacting Prototype Warfare: Strategic Logic and Ethics

Human machine teaming offers transformative military advantages to those Land forces that can embrace the challenges of people, processes and technology that are inherent to Robotic and Autonomous Systems (RAS).

Enacting Prototype Warfare: Information - the heart of the RAS ecosystem

The power of Land RAS comes from leveraging information shared between multiple systems. Get your copy of our Enacting Prototype Warfare report, delving into this topic in detail.

Enacting Prototype Warfare: How do you operationalise?

A follow-on from our Information - the heart of the RAS ecosystem blog, in this article we explore how the technology discussed can be actively operationalised in the field.

Enacting Prototype Warfare: Use Case Scenarios

Robotics and Autonomous Systems play a key role in today's operational environments, but how would battles of years past have looked with RAS? We look at a famous WW2 scenario in our latest EPW blog.

Enacting Prototype Warfare: How do you deliver?

The fifth blog in our Enacting Prototype Warfare series, we explore RAS in further detail, creating assurance four key recommendations.
