ADS Scotland and our partners on the Scottish Government Aerospace Response Group are delighted to announce this new event for Scottish companies, with registration open immediately for what is sure to be a very popular virtual event.

Tempest is the next-generation combat aircraft, operating at the cutting edge of technological innovation and securing the UK's position as a global leader in combat air. Team Tempest is delivering world firsts in advanced technical capabilities. The Tempest aircraft will deploy new, game-changing technology and is set to join the RAF fleet from 2035, replacing the Typhoon.

Team Tempest is made up of a group of industry partners: BAE Systems, Rolls Royce, Leonardo and MBDA. These partners are working with the RAF’s Rapid Capabilities Office and the Ministry of Defence to develop the technologies needed for the next generation of combat air.

This event will provide Scottish companies with the ideal introduction to Tempest and the industry partners within Team Tempest, a detailed understanding of the work ongoing across the Tempest endeavour and the wider UK Combat Air Sector. Crucially the event will also outline how Scottish companies may develop their own engagement with the programme and its partners.

PLEASE NOTE - Registration will close at close of business 14 January 2021.

A full agenda and virtual meeting joining details will be provided prior to the event.
