Software and Product Assurance
QinetiQ provides software safety and assurance support to the UK’s MOD teams and commercial customers throughout the lifetime of a project. We specialise in identifying software-related risks at the outset of a project, assessing their likely impact, and providing pragmatic solutions and options to maximise project efficiency.
We work in partnership with our customers, and assign dedicated resources to a project from start to finish. This ensures consistency of approach and means we can help to find solutions to any issues as soon as they arise.
We also deliver impartial, independent technical support on procuring software-intensive systems with skilled support on major projects and often take responsibility for technical aspects of a project.
We have experience in safety, software engineering, computer systems, ISO 9001 and TickIT, auditing and project management. We are members of several policy-making organisations and working groups, including the Software Systems Engineering Initiative (SSEI) and MOD Software Quality Assurance Working Group.
We also provide a full spectrum of battery and cabling solutions, from concept to product compliance to disposal. We apply rigorous procedures for performance validation, defect analysis, and for risk identification and mitigation for all major battery applications. These are supported by our comprehensive ‘one-stop-shop’ test facilities.
Our internationally recognised experts offer support on:
- System architecture
- Safety assessments, including health monitoring
- Cost-effective alternatives
- EU legislation and UN transportation compliance
