KBR and QinetiQ team to deliver sovereign test and evaluation capability

KBR and QinetiQ have signed a teaming agreement to work collaboratively to deliver Test and Evaluation (T&E) services for the Australian Defence Force.

Under the agreement KBR and QinetiQ will share skills and experiences to build on both companies’ respective test and evaluation solutions, drawing on both global and local capabilities.

Nic Maan, KBR’s Vice President Government Solutions APAC, said, “The Defence Strategic Review has made it clear that industry needs to step up, collaborate and deliver solutions aligned with national Defence ambitions.

“Together we can bring world-leading knowledge and capabilities from the UK and the US and invest in the continued development of these to strengthen Australia’s defence and security and grow our industrial resilience.”

QinetiQ is a trusted T&E partner to the UK Ministry of Defence as well as to the Australian Government. KBR is a specialist test, trial and training agent for the US Department of Defence. “We see enormous potential for the Commonwealth with our two companies working together,” said Maan. “Together we can provide a deep and focused pool of test and trial specialists assembled to support the nation’s future defence and security requirements.”

“We are a trusted domestic industry partner to the ADF and our T&E services support ADF decision makers with objective, end-to-end assurance across the capability lifecycle,” said Paul Angelatos, QinetiQ MD, Advisory Services. “We see the value in collaborating with industry partners to bring the best capability, people and solutions to support the Australian warfighter.

“Through strong industry networks and long-term investment in initiatives such as our sovereign T&E skills program, we are growing capability in Australia to support the increasingly complex T&E projects of our defence and security customers.”
