who we are

QinetiQ North America (QNA) is the ESC’s prime contractor. QNA’s parent company, QinetiQ, was formed in 2001 when the United Kingdom’s Defense Evaluation and Research Agency privatized its laboratories and test ranges. Although it is a subsidiary of QinetiQ, QNA is an independent company that operates under a proxy agreement with the U.S. Department of Defense that protects the national security interests of the United States.
