To ask the Secretary of State for Defence, what assessment he has made of whether the conclusion of Project Mosquito will impact Carrier Enabled Power Projection.
4 July 2022
Project MOSQUITO was a Technology Demonstration Project designed to examine ways to achieve cost and time reductions in developing future uncrewed Combat Aircraft. This decision to curtail the contract with Spirit AeroSystems at the design phase has no impact on broader future work, including Carrier Enabled Power Projection. The learning accrued within the design phase of the project has a useful read across to other Research and Development projects as part of the wider LANCA and FCAS portfolio.
