The battery workshop at MOD Boscombe Down is a comprehensive facility that can accommodate any battery in-service, be it acid or alkali, military or civil.

Through the LTPA, QinetiQ can service, maintain and support aircraft wheels, brakes, and hydraulic components. Other facilities include an Oxygen system capability and a dedicated workshop for GRP component repairs, to include some categories of Main Rotor Blade repair.

All types of parachutes can be maintained and repaired, i.e. heavy-drop, cargo, man-carrying, aircraft emergency, helicopter escape and recovery parachutes.

Servicing is offered for life rafts of all sizes, Martin-Baker ejection seats, aircraft pylons, aircraft generators and aircraft-mounted launchers and guns. Maintenance of all types of flying clothing, from helmets to immersion suits and boots can also be provided.
