December 2022 - QinetiQ completes acquisition of Air Affairs Australia

We are delighted to share that on 6 December 2022 QinetiQ, a leading science and engineering company, officially completed its acquisition of Air Affairs Australia.

QinetiQ Australia is a natural fit for the Air Affairs team. From our investment in early careers and sovereign industrial capability, to delivering critical training opportunities that enhance Australian defence operational readiness, both companies are aligned in culture and strategy.

An exciting opportunity to unlock greater value for our Defence and industry customers, the combination of QinetiQ’s global threat representation, test and evaluation expertise and Air Affairs’ threat representation and mission rehearsal capabilities will create a market leader in threat representation, training, test and evaluation in Australia.

Combined, we are a company of more than 800 Australians delivering vital services to our Defence and National Security Customers, specialising in threat representation, test and evaluation and engineering services.
