QinetiQ has announced that it is acquiring German training provider EIS Aircraft Operations for EUR70 million (USD85.67 million), a move that is expected to facilitate the company’s growth in this geographical market.

EIS provides threat representation and operational readiness training to military forces, having delivered low-speed aerial training to the German armed forces since 1999 and additionally providing services to the US Air Force in Europe.
