Our 5m low-speed wind tunnel supports the evaluation of landing and take-off performance, enabling the accurate modelling of details. Pressurisation simulates full-scale conditions for combat aircraft.
QinetiQ’s long-arm centrifuge facility enables astronauts and fast-jet pilots to train for launch and landing, monitoring their health and performance during G-exposure and G-acceleration.
Comprehensive testing facilities allow us to test every parameter that impacts on the performance of aircraft – including noise, night vision, radio performance and human performance.
We manage a hypobaric chamber capable of replicating ambient pressures and gas profiles associated with operations at altitude, which enables us to assess the human response and the effectiveness of life-support systems.
