QinetiQ / DSTL
Originally built as HMS Nelson during WWII, this became the home of the government's radar research establishment during peacetime. The name changed several times as it expanded and different ministries were in charge. Recently it has been privatised to become QinetiQ with a small section still under MOD control called the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory.
