  4. The latest in QinetiQ's 'People Who Know How' series of films, we meet Chaz Taylor, Hyperbaric Facility Manager.

    Find out about Chaz and his work on the altitude chamber at MOD Boscombe Down.

    QinetiQ operate and manage a hypobaric chamber capable of replicating ambient pressures and gas profiles associated with operations at altitude. This includes capability for investigations of hypoxia (where the body fails to get sufficient oxygen) through to studies of the impact of rapid decompression on survival and operations. We conduct both assessments of human response to operations at altitude as well as assessing the effectiveness of life-support systems designed to enable effective operations at altitude. The chamber can accommodate up to 8 people, and can simulate altitudes to in excess of 100,000 ft. Rapid decompressions of 70kPa in 0.1seconds -- equivalent to a change in altitude from 8,000 to 65,000ft -- can be achieved.

  5. ESA and Astrium undertake a test of a QinetiQ-designed penetrator, which they hope will one day be sent to Jupiter's moon, Europa. The study is aimed at sampling and measuring systems for astrobiological investigations on Europa. The test was run using QinetiQ's Pendine facilities - including the test track - and the penetrator itself was designed by our very own 'People Who Know How' at Fort Halstead. Penetrators are 'hard landers', designed to hit a target surface at high speed and survive. The impact speed of the Europa penetrator into the ice surface is 300 m/s -- about 670 mph or just below the speed of sound at sea level on Earth.
