Current Research Programmes

We are specialists at Research Management, bringing together “best-in-class” experts both internally across the whole of QinetiQ and externally.

We have an enviable record in the establishment and management of teams to meet MOD’s research requirements. We have acted as prime on four core C4ISR capability research programmes for Dstl:

  • Communications and Cross-Cutting Electronic Surveillance (CCCES) - delivered by the CREST consortium (Collaborative Research in Electronic Surveillance Technology). This programme provides Dstl with ready access to cutting edge research to develop next generation hardware and software based Electronic Surveillance technologies at reduced cost and risk aligned with future UK SIGINT requirements.
  • C4ISR Concepts and Solutions (CCS) - delivered by a joint Government/Industry team - develops and validates credible options for future ISTAR systems at the Enterprise level, supporting capability interventions post 2017.
  • C4ISR Secure Information Infrastructure and Services (CSIIS) - delivered by the consortium Team Sirius. Research forms a major component of this programme, spanning the physical/infrastructure level to the cognitive/social level, taking full account of the Defence Information Reference Model.
  • Defence Support and Logistics (DSL) – delivered by an agile consortium of SMEs. This research programme encompasses all those activities that maintain military capability at pre-planned availability, readiness and sustainability profiles through its whole life and End-to-End.
