Field Notes

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 therefore now in the private sector. QinetiQ run an Air Range at Larkhill for testing and evaluating UAV's. Several sites in or near Larkhill have also been suggested for the new Stonehenge visitors centre, which it is hoped will be built in time for the 2012 Olympics.
