- QinetiQ has been awarded a £1bn contract amendment to the Long Term Partnering Agreement (LTPA) from the UK Ministry of Defence (MOD), committing approximately half the core LTPA revenues until 31 March 2028.

Under the LTPA, Test & Evaluation (T&E) services have been delivered since 2003.

The amendment will see QinetiQ modernise and operate the air ranges at MOD Aberporth and MOD Hebrides, and test aircrew training through the Empire Test Pilots' School at MOD Boscombe Down.

Importantly, efficiencies delivered through this programme enable future MOD and QinetiQ investment in developing further world-class T&E.
