QinetiQ has assisted a range of clients in taking their initial thoughts about a requirement for a new vessel type and producing a concept design that is viable and cost effective.
Through our experience and expertise working with defence and commercial clients, we are able to draw out the key drivers and requirements of the design, comparing available options and carrying out cost/capability analysis to inform the procurement process.
Our Paramarine software allows us to consider the required parameters in one package, and produce analysis and visualisation to quickly explore different options.
Our cutting edge expertise in hydrodynamic testing, propulsion and human factors enables us to develop new vessel types. QinetiQ has developed a number of concept designs for which readily available technical options do not exist.
QinetiQ delivers model and full scale demonstration programmes to suit even the most complex requirements. Please see our Projects page for some examples.
