In line with the Ministry of Defence (MOD)'s 'whole force concept' approach, the acquisition team will be a multidisciplinary organisation, drawing on talent from across Defence. Programmes of this nature necessarily need to evolve over time along with the size and composition of the Team, but the core leadership group to initiate the acquisition will comprise two Air Force officers and three civil servants. They will lead and draw on the significant expertise of the rest of the MOD's Strategic Programmes team, Head Office, Team Tempest, DSTL, Defence Equipment and Support, other Government Departments and industry.
