Delivering Solution for Air Support to Defence Operational Training Programme for British Military
Leonardo teamed with Discovery Air Defence Services, a wholly owned subsidiary of Discovery Air Inc., and Inzpire Ltd. to develop and deliver a customer centered, low-risk, live air training solution for the UK Ministry of Defence’s (MoD) Air Support to Defence Operational Training (ASDOT) programme. The companies will combine their capabilities, expertise and experience in live air aggressor training, air warfare training, Electronic Warfare and airborne systems integration to deliver a highly capable and scalable solution to support ASDOT’s live fly tactical training needs through the mid-2030s. DA Defence and Inzpire first announced a relationship in February 2017 to combine their capabilities to support ASDOT.
Solution capabilities will scale with the evolving operational and technological needs of live air training, operations, and simulation to support RAF TYPHOON and F-35 LIGHTNING II operational readiness through the mid-2030s.
