The Future of Combat Air

Team Tempest

Tempest concept model
Who, what and why?
Team Tempest is a co-funded technology initiative which has been launched by the RAF Rapid Capabilities Office and UK industry partners. This programme aims to ensure that the UK sustains and further develops the technological competence necessary to retain military freedom of action and keep the UK at the forefront of global Combat Air technology development.

Team Tempest brings together the UK’s world leading industry and sovereign capabilities across future combat air’s four key technology areas: advanced combat air systems and integration (BAE Systems); advanced power and propulsion systems (Rolls-Royce); advanced sensors, electronics and avionics (Leonardo); and advanced weapon systems (MBDA).

As part of the FCAS Delivery team we are actively delivering against a number of live work-streams including airframe and next generation technologies as well as concept and integration work.
Team Tempest was announced by UK Government alongside the launch of the UK’s Combat Air Strategy in July 2018.
