Maritime Autonomy Centre

​Today, autonomous maritime vehicles are common place, but when operated in the military environment how do you know that they will work reliably and provide you with the correct tactical information?

QinetiQ Maritime with an autonomous system

QinetiQ has created the UK’s first Maritime Autonomy Centre (Q-MAC) to develop and de-risk the operation of unmanned complex systems.

We work closely with customers to develop concept of operations and design requirements as well as supporting system integration and performance evaluation.

Our facilities are secure and range from the Ocean Basin, which is the largest covered body of water in Europe, through to open water deployment of multiple assets operating in a cooperative environment.
