Greenwich. London. 10 September 2017 . QinetiQ’s stand at Defence and Security Equipment International (DSEI) 2017 will be the first major international showcase of its new brand and visual identity. For many attendees, it will also be the first opportunity to discuss progress on the company’s strategy to modernise UK test and evaluation capability, deliver additional value to customers in international markets and invest in innovation for customer advantage.

At the QinetiQ stand, S2-550, visitors can discover how the company helps its customers to achieve proven operational and competitive advantage in the face of rapidly evolving threats. Experts will be on hand to share examples across five themes: Autonomy & Robotics, Disruptive Technologies, Security, Test & Evaluation, and Training & Rehearsal. In the Autonomy & Robotics area, guests can learn how QinetiQ enables unmanned systems to operate with each other and manned systems across air, land and sea. The display will include a 900kg Titan Sentry robot and Talon V counter-IED robot.

The Disruptive Technologies zone features cutting edge innovations that promise to have a major impact on future capability. These include electric drive systems for vehicles, protective composite materials for aircraft fuselages, and defensive laser weapons.
The Security section showcases technology that helps customers defend territory, protect infrastructure, or communicate securely. Highlights include the ASX communications intelligence system, SPO-NX crowd security scanner, and Bracer encrypted communications handset.

QinetiQ is investing to modernise Test & Evaluation services that are critical to procurement and through-life support of military platforms and weapons systems. Among the items on display in this area will be the Banshee Jet 110 aerial target and Hammerhead marine surface target.
The Training & Rehearsal section demonstrates how QinetiQ trains people in a mix of virtual worlds and real-life settings to increase operational performance at a reduced cost. Visitors can experience a live virtual reality training scenario in which they take control of a submarine.

Rich Mears, Business Development Director, QinetiQ, said: “Our presence at DSEI is all about demonstrating to customers how we can give them the edge, when and where it really matters. Our unrivalled engineering and scientific expertise enables us to get ahead of the threat and find a solution before it arises. From disruptive technology, to secure systems, to test & evaluation, this work gives our customers proven advantage.”
