Appearences can be deceptive

I was wandering aroundthe web in my own way - doing research, wasting time that sort of thing when I came across this site.

Go on take a look and see what you think it is in reality.
The pale blue corporate site. QinetiQ itself is a nice meaningless word, suggesting something bland but scientific. Maybe the IQ, and movement with kinetic. Then the picture shows a bored security guard with a strap line about security.

But just go and have a look at their core competancies...
Here and here oh yes and here

What it is is the the newly branded, dont tell anyone - part privatised DERA (Defence Evaluation and Research Agency) . Yup that's right, Q and his minions creating gadgets for all our spooks and soldiers.
