BAE Systems selects Collins actuation for the Tempest
Monday, 20 July 2020
Team Tempest now has Collins onboard, as the company is selected to provide actuation capabilities for the next-generation combat aircraft.

Collins Aerospace Systems has been awarded a contract by BAE Systems to provide advanced actuation capabilities, including for the U.K.'s Tempest next generation combat air system project. Collins Aerospace will support the program from its Actuation Systems facility in Wolverhampton, UK.

Team Tempest is a co-funded technology initiative launched by the Royal Air Force (RAF) Rapid Capabilities Office and U.K. industry partners, including BAE Systems, Rolls Royce, Leonardo and MBDA. The program is designed to ensure that the UK sustains and further develops the technological competencies necessary to retain military freedom of action and keep the UK at the forefront of global Combat Air technology development.

Team Tempest is working on a broad portfolio of more than 60 technology demonstrations spanning the breadth of combat air systems. Each demonstration will help develop UK industry skills, technologies and capabilities for the future.

"It's a great privilege to work with BAE Systems on the Tempest project," says Ed Dryden, vice president, Actuation Systems for Collins Aerospace. "We look forward to showcasing our actuation capabilities for a next generation combat air system while continuing to develop our future talent pipeline and deepening our collaboration with BAE Systems to ultimately support the aircraft itself."
