The Future Combat Air System Technology Initiative was announced as part of the 2015 Strategic Defence and Security Review and consists of three core strands of activity on developing Combat Air technologies: international projects, including our work with France; national projects; and an open mission system architecture project. We are working closely with UK Industry teams, who are on contract to develop key technologies for any future system. We are in discussion with industry and international partners to inform the Combat Air Strategy being developed following the announcement by the Secretary of State for Defence on 21 February 2018.
