DOD signs QinetiQ to continue security work

The Defense Department will continue to work with QinetiQ North America to provide security services for the next five years under a new $30 million follow-on contract.


QNA’s Missions Solutions Group — formerly Analex — will provide a wide range of unspecified security services to DOD’s Counterintelligence Field Activity, primarily in the Washington area.


QNA won the contract in December 2003 to help protect government personnel, critical infrastructure and sensitive defense programs.


The company created the Missions Solutions Group when QNA purchased Analex last March. The aerospace and intelligence support services contractor joined other recent QinetiQ acquisitions, including Apogen Technologie, Foster Miller, Planning Systems and Westar Aerospace and Defense Group.


QinetiQ North America of McLean, Va., is a subsidiary of QinetiQ Group of Farnborough, Great Britain.
