QinetiQ

Established in Jul 2001 to conduct much of the Defence Research work previously done by the Defence Evaluation and Research Agency (DERA), at that time a Government body. QinetiQ was to champion commercial funding and compete for defence related work in other countries, using its expertise and resources. The non commercial (government retained) areas were covered by DSTL, which amounted to around 20 per cent of the previous DERA organisation.
QinetiQ contracts a number of defence services back to Britains armed services, including the Long Term Partnering Agreement to manage the MoD test and evaluation ranges from 2003 and the Combined Aerial Target Service from Dec 2006.
