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

Sea

At sea, QinetiQ provides a wide range of Test & Evaluation (T&E) services, drawing on technical expertise and wide experience of managing ship and submarine trials.

An extended suite of stealth measuring services are on offer, from input at the early design phase, to acceptance into service, to midlife upgrades. Acoustic, electromagnetic and RCS (radar cross section) signatures can all be measured and optimised to ensure that a vessel’s signature is minimised throughout its lifecycle. Platform readiness services are also offered, from support to complex and novel trials planning to the execution of the trials that test an extensive range of facilities and equipment.
