The inauguration of Dstl on 2 July 2001 and the simultaneous vesting
of NewDERA as a commercial company, QinetiQ, was the culmination of more
than two years' planning for DERA PPP.
Dstl (Defence Science and Technology Laboratory) is a new scientific
organisation within the MoD, and focuses on the needs of the Ministry of
Defence and the Government.
Martin Earwicker has been appointed Chief Executive of Dstl and is
personally committed to making Dstl indispensable to its MoD partners for
impartial and expert technical advice when it really matters.
