TECHNOLOGY BAE SYSTEMS’ TARANIS
In the first of a three-part series on aircraft designed and produced by BAE Systems, Mark Ayton provides an update on the unmanned Taranis technology demonstrator, one of the most advanced air vehicles ever flown
AIR International has previously covered the BAE Systems’ Taranis UAV on several occasions. Since the aircraft was last flown in 2015 not much has been reported on the system, though the story is by no means complete given its link with the UK Future Combat Air System (FCAS) ongoing with Team Tempest. Before reporting on the latest account of the Taranis programme it’s worth looking at the system one more time.
