Responding to today’s publication of Defence in a Competitive Age, ADS Chief Executive Paul Everitt said:

"Today’s Defence Command Paper provides industry with welcome clarity on future programmes and priorities.

“Industry wants to work closely with the MOD and front line commands to manage the modernisation; investing in innovation, technology and know-how to ensure our national security and maximise the economic impact across all regions and nations of the UK.

“ADS is keen to see further detail of the planned Defence and Security Industrial Strategy, working in partnership with the Government to deliver on further industrial capability for our Armed Forces in support of the UK’s national security.”
