QinetiQ Australia provides consulting and engineering services to government, defence organisations and industry sectors including aerospace, mining and rail.

Our customers trust us to give them independent expert advice, and develop tailored solutions that deliver exceptional value. We partner with them to help them understand complex problems and make information-based decisions. 

Local delivery of global capability

Our success is founded on the industry leading knowledge, professionalism, performance and commitment of our people, who are based in Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra and Port and South Melbourne. Each and every one is a subject matter expert. 

QinetiQ Australia was founded in 2008, after the QinetiQ Group in the UK acquired several local companies. Through the rich heritage of QinetiQ UK we have supported the Australian Defence Force for over a century. For example, historical records reveal the first HMAS Adelaide warship and seaplane carrier HMAS Albatross were tested at model scale in our UK hydrodynamic facility.
