QinetiQ North America aids Marines with systems engineering

Contract option is worth almost $12 million

The Marine Corps Systems Command Acquisition Center for Support Services awarded QinetiQ North America a prime contract for continued services to MSCS’s Deputy Commander, Systems Engineering, Interoperability, Architectures and Technology (DC, SIAT).
