The Tempest is the next-generation combat aircraft, operating at the cutting edge of technological innovation to secure the UK's position as a global leader in air defence and combat.
The programme is set to deliver world firsts in advanced technical capabilities. The new aircraft is set to be a gamechanger and will eventually join the RAF in 2035 as a replacement for its Typhoon Eurofighter.
This seminar is part of a series in preparation for MACH 2022.
A recent report revealed the Tempest fighter jet will support 20,000 jobs every year from 2026-2050 and contribute more than £25.3 billion to the UK economy in its first 30 years.
The Tempest programme is being delivered by Team Tempest, a UK technology and defence partnership formed by BAE Systems, Leonardo UK, MBDA, Rolls-Royce and the RAF, and involving hundreds of high-tech companies, SMEs and academia across the UK.
It is one of the UK’s most ambitious technological endeavours, designed to deliver a highly advanced, adaptable and affordable military combat air system which will play a key role in the nation’s defence and security.
