Space technology

Innovating with space technology has always been at the core of Verhaert’s operations ever since the start of the company. The former space division of Verhaert was spun out to the UK-based Qinetiq in 2005 and is now known as Qinetiq Space. Today we focus 100% on helping customers to innovate in all industries but maintaining a strong relationship with the space industry, searching for breakthrough innovation opportunities in non-space applications.
