Qinetiq develops consequence analysis model for Illustrious

Qinetiq Marine Survivability Services has supported the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) in the development of a comprehensive safety case for HMS Illustrious in its permanent conversion to a helicopter carrier.

The company was tasked with the creation, development and support in the interpretation of a consequence analysis model for the carrier.

The work was placed with Qinetiq via the Maritime Strategic Capability Agreement (MSCA), a contract between the MoD and Qinetiq, which secures the MoD’s access to a range of maritime engineering, and scientific expertise and facilities.
