In partnership with QinetiQ Target Systems, Trideum Corporation was awarded the Low-Cost Subscale Aerial Target (LSAT) Systems and Services contract with Redstone Test Center in July. The LSAT effort is a Delivery Order under Trideum’s Aerial Target Systems 2 (ATS 2) Indefinite Delivery/ Indefinite Quantity (ID/IQ) contract. 

Trideum is partnered with QinetiQ’s Target Systems business to provide the Banshee Jet 80+ as the primary target for operation on U.S. Department of Defense ranges, including the Orogrande and McGregor ranges in New Mexico. The agreement also comprises a suite of aerial target payload enhancements, ranging from Miss Distance Indication to supersonic drop target payloads. The Trideum / QinetiQ team will deliver engineering, technical, training, and flight services for all aspects of the Banshee Jet 80+, including integration into the Army Ground Aerial Target Control System (AGATCS). 

But Trideum’s partnership with QinetiQ is not just limited to targets.

“We are looking to establish a global partnership across the spectrum of test and training,” said Van Sullivan, Trideum Corporation president. “Trideum is a relational company, and we want to establish a broad, long-term partnership with a company with similar values on performance, employee care and community development. QinetiQ is innovative and complements Trideum’s capabilities to serve the warfighter and the community.”
