Microgravity Research

QinetiQ is a technology integrator and applied science partner for organisations that want to perform research in a unique zero gravity laboratory environment.

We develop and build sophisticated instruments for parabolic flights, drop towers, sounding rockets, the International Space Station, satellites, and for other manned & unmanned space vehicles.

Our instruments allow scientists and researchers to:

  • work in microgravity conditions
  • conduct medical, physical and biological research
  • create new materials, and
  • carry out technological trials
