SMERAS Support

Hyperbaric Test Trials Unit

QinetiQ is the UK Royal Navy’s partner for Submarine Escape Rescue and Abandonment and Survival (SMERAS) research, test and evaluation, and we’re at the forefront of research into physiological effects in the SMERAS environment.

We’ve delivered SMERAS support services to many of the world’s navies and naval constructors, and supported by peerless facilities, which include the QinetiQ Hyperbaric Trials Unit, we handle concept design and development, tower escape systems, surface abandonment, DISSUB survival, submersible rescue and audit and assessment.

With a rapid response team of Submarine Escape Training Tank (SETT) qualified personnel, we’re ready to go to sea and conduct trials at any time.
