QinetiQ has begun a project under MoD contract to investigate and develop new methods and technologies for repairing battle damage of warships
Battle damage repair development project for warships
QinetiQ has undertaken the search for new approaches and technologies for warship Battle Damage Repair

Providers of existing or novel equipment, materials, or procedures are being invited to contact QinetiQ to discuss the possible inclusion of their products in the study, and later assessment for MOD use.

The contract, awarded to QinetiQ by the UK Ministry of Defence, DE&S Fleet Wide Equipment PT is to investigate and develop new approaches to warship battle damage repair. This includes examining current or emerging technologies, tools, equipment and techniques from all and any appropriate suppliers which could be of use for the repair of damage in warships. The scope of the work includes but is not limited to the rapid repair of steel structure, both above and below the waterline. Leak stopping, support/ strengthening of damaged structure, and the preservation of buoyancy are of particular interest.

“Over the next few months we will look to identify new methods and technologies that could be used to repair ‘battle damaged’ warships,” explained Iain Kennedy, practice leader for QinetiQ’s Maritime Platforms Consultancy business. “We will examine and assess the current methods and technologies in use for repair of battle damage in warships, and conduct a market search for existing, novel and emerging equipment and procedures which might be worthy of further investigation or adaptation for use in this way. Further down the track there may even be funding for development, but it’s the ideas we are looking for at this stage.”
