FCAS: Future prosperity and ‘Generation Tempest’

15 Sep 2021
Aerospace Forum
Future Operational Requirements

An opportunity for discussion on the prosperity benefits of the programme, the impact it has across the four nations of the UK, the prospect of a ‘Generation Tempest’ and the ongoing efforts to ‘digitise the industry’.

  • What impact do you see the FCAS programme having on opportunities in the combat air sector over the next decade?
  • What kind of skills and roles do you think will become increasingly important for the programme?
  • The term ‘Generation Tempest’ has been used to refer to a whole generation of young people who will get opportunities and grow with this programme. How is the programme already benefitting young people across the industry?
  • What opportunities are there for the supply chain, and maybe even non-traditional defence suppliers, as a result of the programme?
  • How does this programme contribute to the regional ‘levelling up’ priority of the Government?
