QinetiQ has received a £9 million contract extension to cover the Royal Navy’s Queen Elizabeth class aircraft carriers with the Naval Combat Systems Integration Support Service (NCSISS).

Delivered in partnership with the navy, BAE Systems and Defence Equipment & Support, the NCSISS service removes risk in the development, integration and testing of ship mission systems and enables the Royal Navy to deploy and take timely advantage of new technologies.

HMS Queen Elizabeth and HMS Prince of Wales will be added to the advanced systems testing and evaluation programmes being delivered by the team at Portsdown Technology Park.

The work covers a range of advanced communications systems for the planning and delivery of joint air and maritime activities and other critical operations; and combat management systems and weapon control systems. Sophisticated shore based test environments at Portsdown will be used to evaluate the complex mission systems of the two carriers to minimise the amount of testing on the platforms themselves and to maximise their operational availability and deployment.
