QinetiQ's UK Privatised Military Checklist

Recent Page Trail:

The following list was extracted from a number of larger UK-wide listings of the sites concerned, and is therefore a composite of all Scottish locations they reported. The full list can be found on a number of web sites, notably those connected with conspiracies and secret plots. No preparation date is provided for the list, though the mention of QinetiQ gives a general idea. The items listed appear as published, so may contain errors which we do not intend to correct, and should not be corrected (other than place name spelling), and notes may be appended later.

An updateable copy is provided at the foot of the page, following the quoted version.

The paragraphs that precede the list are part of that total listing, and the opinions expressed within therefore have no connection with this site.

The idea that military research and development could possibly be privatised would, to many, seem ridiculous. It would appear obvious to most people that the profit motive and military priorities do not sit easily together. We must therefore keep close tabs on those whose business is make private profit from more efficient ways of maiming and killing.

Defence Evaluation and Research Agency [DERA] as of July 1 2001, officially became known as QinetiQ [pronounced kinetic]. Many of the 80-plus laboratories, employing some 9,000 scientists, are now in the private sector. The UK government retains control of sensitive top secret sections of QinetiQ, such as the germ warfare laboratories at Porton Down, Wiltshire.
