The MOD and QinetiQ working together to provide Defence Test & Evaluation and Training Support Services

Ground Based Air Defence

The Ground Based Air Defence (GBAD) In-Service Firings capability offers a range of facilities for operator and weapon system evaluation and training.

The LTPA supports discrete, multiple or mixed weapon platform engagements. Weapon systems can be fired under tactical conditions or fully instrumented to provide data for post event analysis. Engagements can be conducted in benign and Electronic Warfare (EW) conditions using standoff airborne jammers.

Aerial targets can be used to support operator and weapon system evaluation activities. Targets can be of basic or advanced profiles including complex manoeuvres. They can also be flown as singletons or as mixed formations; enabling tactical evaluation of the threat assessment by operators and commanders.
