Naval architecture and marine engineering services

QinetiQ provides ship and submarine concept design, supported by our commercially available Paramarine™ software. We help our clients to select cost-effective designs by performing rapid cost-capability trade-off analyses. Our SURVIVE software also delivers susceptibility and vulnerability assessment of naval systems in a multitude of threat, weapon and damage scenarios.

A QinetiQ combat systems engineer evaluates radar tactical picture quality in QinetiQ’s ship integration facility (SIF) within the land based test site (LBTS) at Portsdown Technology Park near Portsmouth, UK.
QinetiQ’s ocean basin facility is the largest hydrodynamic testing tank in Europe and provides QinetiQ’s engineers with the ability to evaluate the performance of ship and submarine scale experimental models.
QinetiQ’s hyperbaric trials unit (HTU) is certified to test equipment at depths up to 1,500m, and is used to assess the performance of submarine escape and diving systems and components.
QinetiQ uses CFD modelling to support the design optimisation of propellers and control surfaces in ships and submarines alongside other software design tools such as Paramarine™.
QinetiQ’s survivability specialists use the SURVIVE™ software to improve the system design and equipment layout in warships, thereby reducing vulnerability to weapons and improving the ability to recover from damage.

QinetiQ’s naval architecture and marine engineering services harness an in-depth analysis and simulation capability underpinned by decades of experimental testing and validation. We provide technical advice, test and evaluation in areas including structural strength, fatigue, shock, noise and vibration, stealth materials, hull form resistance, sea keeping, manoeuvrability, propeller design, cavitation, submarine escape and rescue (SMERAS), submarine atmospheres, diving and hyperbaric medicine. QinetiQ’s large-scale experimental facilities, such as the ocean basin, ship tank and hyperbaric trials unit, have benefited many customers around the world.
