Read our latest blog - Is the public sector leveraging its #cyber #security buying power?

David Carroll, Cyber Security #QinetiQ

Protective monitoring is one of the 10 Steps to Cyber Security as specified by the Cabinet Office, CPNI (Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure) and BIS (Department for Business Innovation & Skills). Eighteen months after the issue of the guide, the adoption of protective monitoring remains limited to large Whitehall departments. Why is this?

Read our latest blog - Inspiring a generation to become the People Who Know How

Tara Francis, Systems Engineer, IME C2 & Mission System Support

is a significant employer of engineers and scientists and so something we’re passionate about is inspiring the next generation to consider careers in STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) subjects.

As part of this, we have a strong commitment to The 5% Club – a joint initiative with liked-minded companies, which aims to encourage as many as possible of the UK’s FTSE350 businesses or equivalent size to commit to having at least 5% of their workforce comprising young people – apprentices, graduates or sponsored students on structured training schemes – within five years.

Read our latest blog - Making Waves: #QinetiQ’s ocean basin gets major upgrade

The wave-making capability within QinetiQ’s ocean basin facility – the largest freshwater indoor tank in the world and built in the 1950s – was one of the first of its kind. Having served its purpose incredibly well, it is now reaching the end of its life and needs replacing with a more modern system.  Two years ago a project was set in motion to select suppliers that would be able to meet the highly complex challenges of an upgrade.
 
The project was split in to two phases: Phase 1 removing the existing equipment, whilst Phase 2 comprises installing the new equipment. Some of the complexity of the programme arises because the existing wavemaker consisted of 10 wedges, each weighing 16 tonnes (pictured), which were originally installed when the basin was empty. Removing them when the basin is full of 40,000 tonnes of water and with the building infrastructure remaining in place, has been an enormous engineering challenge.

Read our latest blog - #ThroneforGames: creating awareness of #QinetiQ amongst the younger generation

QinetiQ is challenging young people to design their perfect Gaming Throne and send us a photo or drawing of their concept. The best of the designs will be posted on our social media channels, and the one retweeted the most or that gets the greatest amount of ‘likes’ will win £300 worth of vouchers!
 
Gaming technology plays a significant role in our training business, enabling us to provide some of our most successful training and simulation services for both military and commercial customers. Evidence suggests that game-based learning, known as ‘gamification’, can improve problem-solving skills, broaden knowledge acquisition, motivation and engagement.

Read our latest blog - Aircraft Electromagnetic Certification Workshop, 3-6 June, 2014

Gavin Barber, Capability Lead – HIRF, DEW & E3, #QinetiQ #Weapons Division
 
Once again QinetiQ will deliver its Aircraft Electromagnetic Certification Workshop (AECW) in June. We’re the only organisation in the UK to offer this workshop and over the past 15 years, industry delegates from across the world have attended the respected four-day course to learn the techniques and test methods necessary to achieve both commercial aircraft certification and support military aircraft Release to Service (RTS).
 
Magnetic interference is generally damaging to electronic equipment, and at higher energy levels a powerful EM event, such as a lightning strike, can damage aircraft. As world-leading providers of consultancy and testing services, QinetiQ’s high-intensity radiated field capability group supports aircraft manufacturers to gain essential regulatory approvals for all aspects of Electromagnetic (EM) clearance.

Read our latest blog - #QinetiQ face-to-face cyber battle identifies #Cyber Security Challenge Masterclass finalists

Chris Clinton, Cyber Security Consultant, QinetiQPage Content

On the last Saturday in February, eight young talented cyber defence hopefuls became the final lucky few to secure a place at the Cyber Security Challenge Masterclass 2014. Working in teams, contestants had to infiltrate and take control of a fictional airport security system during the face-to-face challenge held at our Farnborough site, the last of the live competitions in the current Cyber Security Challenge UK programme.

The challenge, developed by a handful of enthusiastic QinetiQ volunteers from our Cyber Security team, brought together some of the country’s most talented amateur cyber defenders to prove they have the skills to become part of the UK’s online security force. They were tasked with exploring a fictional airport security system, identifying its vulnerabilities, using those to take control of the airport CCTV, covertly observing the arrival of a VIP, and finally patching up the ‘holes’ to prevent rival teams attacking them and undermining their hard work.

Read our latest blog - Close range weapons training for #Maritime

By Dawn Harrison, Head of Delivery for Maritime, Training and Simulation Services

With the increasing risk to the Royal Navy, a need has been identified to improve their close range weapons training. #QinetiQ, drawing on technology developed within its Training and Simulations Services (#TSS) division, has been able to help the RN meet this requirement.

Built on the Virtual Battles­pace 2 (VBS2™) simulation engine, our approach offers a highly adaptable system, meaning that new threats, tactics, and techniques can quickly and cost-effectively be incorporated into the training.
