What we do

The MOD West Freugh Range is a weapons Test & Evaluation (T&E) Range. This controlled environment has the ability to conduct a variety of airborne and ground test activities in support of the UK Defence programme and Armed Forces. The Range is operated by QinetiQ under the terms of the Long Term Partnering Agreement (LTPA). For an insight into QinetiQ’s work on MOD T&E Ranges, watch this video.
