Test & Evaluation

In addition to our threat replication capability, we provide access to advanced and comprehensive Test & Evaluation services across the air, land and sea domains.

Our partner QinetiQ, manages and operates the UK Ministry of Defence’s (MOD) core land, sea and air Test & Evaluation (T&E) capabilities under the UK Governments Long Term Partnering Agreement. Through Houbara, we can offer these capabilities, and their associated subject matter experts to Military and Government as well as industry within the United Arab Emirates and the wider Gulf area and tailor a solution to meet your specific needs.

Services include:

  • Air ranges: including provision of targets, data analysis, and mobile instrumentation.
  • Land ranges: including environmental testing and static or dynamic firing of General and Complex weapon systems and sub-systems.
  • Sea ranges: including torpedo and weapons tests, acoustic and electromagnetic signatures, compass calibration and radar cross-section measurements.
  • Target services: including aerial targets, maritime dynamic targets, instrumented barges and land targets, all tailored to your individual needs.

We can provide differing levels of layered realism, from a simple controlled experience to a complex, realistic ‘fight-in fight-out’ scenario. Our independence and expertise allows us to deliver exactly what you need with complete impartiality, confidentially and security.

The ranges QinetiQ operate for UK MOD offer safe and secure spaces in which to conduct your operational and tactical training exercises. The experience can be further enriched by combining simulated and real-world events. From maintaining safety and security, through to the provision of complex target scenarios, supported by high integrity performance measurement and replay systems, you can rely on us.

We can also validate simulated data using information derived from a real event. Whatever your weapons training requirement, we can tailor a solution to meet it.

Our journey beings with working with customers to collectively gain a detailed understanding of your requirements in terms of your threat scenarios and the capabilities you wish to deploy against those threats. We then design and run a range of trials and exercises to ensure your capabilities are as effective as possible. To leverage that Test & Evaluation expertise and help customers enhance their delivery capability, we provide a wide range of advisory services, novel engineering solutions and support services.
