Boeing and QinetiQ Announce Strategic Agreement

Boeing and the UK research and technology company QinetiQ have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to explore collaboration on the development of a variety of technologies, including aviation security, air traffic management, acoustics, lighting and cabin interiors, fuel cells and lightweight materials.

Boeing’s leadership in commercial and military aircraft, along with QinetiQ research, could also allow for development of lighter-than-air-vehicles, unmanned aerial vehicles, systems integration and network centric operations.

Under this agreement, Boeing’s European Research and Technology Center in Madrid, Spain, will work closely with QinetiQ to identify potential collaborative projects. Since it began operations in 2002, the Madrid center, which currently employees about 30 Europeans, has become a recognized leader in aviation safety, environment and air traffic management in Europe.
