Collins Aerospace continues to make progress on actuation capabilities for the U.K.’s Tempest program. Under a contract with BAE Systems, Collins will develop a number of demonstration components as part of continuing technology de-risking work on the program. Collins will support the program from its Actuation Systems headquarters in Wolverhampton, U.K.
Since announcing it had been selected to provide actuation systems for Tempest in 2020, Collins has begun producing components in preparation for testing later in the year.
“Our systems will help protect the Tempest’s aggressive program schedule and cost targets, to help ensure the continued success and timely development of this critical initiative for the U.K. aerospace and defense industry,” said Ed Dryden, Vice President, Actuation Systems for Collins Aerospace.Email Post to a Friend
