AWACS: Procurement

Question for Ministry of Defence

UIN 177235, tabled on 9 October 2018

To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, pursuant to Written Statement of 9 October 2018, HCWS974 on Airborne Warning and Control System, if he will publish the market analysis undertaken by his Department in relation to that decision.

Answered on

15 October 2018

The analysis work relating to possible options to invest in and improve the United Kingdom's Airborne Warning and Control System capability considered a wide range of options available on the market, including a number of business jet-based solutions and also some more novel options, including unmanned aerial vehicles.

I am withholding market analysis information as its disclosure would, or would be likely to, prejudice the capability, effectiveness or security of our Armed Forces.
