Foulness Firing Range

NtM no.34 of 2016  

From Monday 19 to Friday 30 September 2016, QinetiQ will be carrying out activities at the Shoeburyness Range on behalf of the MOD, which will be after dusk and which may be visible in the vicinity of the Thames Estuary.

The activity will be conducted between approximately 19:00-21:30, when conditions are favourable, and will involve the use of airborne munitions which are designed to illuminate. Mariners should be cautious not to mistake these lights for distress signals/flares.

All activity on the site is conducted in a strictly controlled environment and presents no danger to the public. This work is subject to suitable acoustic forecasts and tide times, which are governed by weather conditions on the day. Consequently, the date of the activity may be subject to change. If mariners or members of the public have any concerns about Range activity, they can call the freephone Careline on 0800 0560108.
