The Multi-Role Ocean Surveillance Ship (MROS) programme will provide several capabilities, including those currently provided by HMS SCOTT.

Funding was provided for that programme in the Integrated Review as part of the uplift to the Royal Navy's shipbuilding pipeline; the nature of the shipping and systems that will deliver the capabilities are being developed, along with the timeline for implementation.
