Before it was acquired by QinetiQ, MTEQ consisted of more than 300 highly skilled and dedicated employees located at 5 US locations with more than 63,000 square feet of office, laboratory, and production space besides supporting our military in several other countries. The company was an AS9100D Certified and ISO9001:2015 Compliant full-service engineering company providing critical capabilities in support of our Defense and Security forces at home and abroad.
MTEQ’s story spans more than a quarter-century since its inception in 1992. The company began with less than twenty employees focused on producing printed circuit boards, small electronic devices, and associated components. The company was purchased in 2005. Since 2005, the company expanded facilities in Kilmarnock and Lorton, Virginia with investments in facilities, equipment, staff and capabilities. MTEQ provided advanced prototyping and rapid development and fielding of technology to support urgent military needs. MTEQ has continued to support emerging military requirements, advanced sensor technology development through our agile engineering processes.
Built on a foundation of systems engineering, rapid prototyping, and technical services to transition operationally relevant advanced sensing solutions; MTEQ had become one of the most agile and innovative small businesses in the field and a preferred choice of many government customers to solve complex challenges quickly and effectively.
