Filtronic, an expert in RF technology with a successful track record in aerospace and defence, has been selected by QinetiQ, the global defence and security company, to design and supply the full RF chain sub-system for a new radar system that will be used for land, sea, and air applications.
QinetiQ has a history of working closely with SMEs in their supply chain. They understand the valuable expertise that companies like Filtronic can bring, and how SME engagement contributes to commercial success.
