NewTech from SCOTLAND??
Scotland may produce some of the best engineers in the world (why else do you think Star Trek had Scottie??) but they all have to come to England to actually get anyone to finance them.
Not that that matters much since the Government (usually, but not always, Labour) will generally then give the new stuff to the Yanks on a vague promise of some sort of return (either an offer of a "special deal" on the hardware once they've built it, or they'll offer to give us some other useful info in return. Only they never do, of course).
Still, not surprised the MoD is having to troll the underbelly of the (dis-)United Kingdom's educational establishments, since they seem to be losing interest in anything Qinetiq does now (why else did they "privatise" it in the first place? You don't seriously believe that they sold off what, 49% of the shares out of the goodness of their hearts do you? And let's face it, they're running out of other things they can sell, so it can't be long before they sell off just a *teensy, weensy* bit more and let the the Yanks^H^H^H sorry, highest bidder have control of the tattered remains of Britain's once-great military engineering arm)...
