In recent news, the UK MoD have signed a £100m contract to test the RAF’s Protector Aircraft.

The UK is replacing the current Reaper aircraft with the 16 Protector RG Mk1, a Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS). With the £100m contract from the Ministry of Defence, the Protector aircraft will be tested to report back on its performance before its introduction to the frontline. The Protector will be able to fly consistently for up to 40 hours and will be deployed across the full spectrum of operations, including ISTAR, search and rescue, flood prevention or disaster response missions.

With this in mind, the two-day agenda will include a presentation from Wing Commander Mark Jackson, Officer Commanding 13 Squadron, Royal Air Force on ‘Preparing for Protector: Challenges of developing for Ops, whilst simultaneously Delivering on Ops’, covering:

  • The future role of the Protector in RAF ISR
  • Managing the preparation of integrating new ISR assets into existing C2 infrastructure
  • The UK’s roadmap for operationalising the Protector and the future conduct of ISR operations
  • Wing Commander Mark Jackson, Officer Commanding 13 Squadron, Royal Air Force, RAF

The brochure with the two-day agenda and full speaker line-up is available at http://www.airborne-isr.net/defencetoday  

This year, Leonardo has been announced as a Gold Sponsor and their briefing will be on ‘Advanced ISR sensor capability for tactical platforms’ by Neil ‘Stan’ Hargreaves, Operational Capability Manager.
