star this property answer text <p>Shipborne Rolling Vertical Landing (SRVL) is a unique technique which is being specifically developed for operations on board the Queen Elizabeth Class Carrier. Trials are under way to develop this technique, which is at an early stage of development, these trials have suggested that SRVL can be executed at acceptable levels of risk when required. SRVL will be used at the extremes of climatic temperatures and air pressures only when the aircraft is carrying heavy weapon loads and the Ministry of Defence has previously undertaken flight trials using a Harrier aircraft on a French carrier to demonstrate proof of concept. Simulator trials are continuing. Final flight trials will not be conducted until 2019.</p><p> </p> more like this

This includes regular events organised by Front Line Commands to share information with industry about future requirements such as the Air Environment Capability Strategy day held in May 2014.</p><p> </p><p>The MOD uses the MOD Defence Contracts Online portal and, where appropriate, the Contracts Finder portal, to advertise all its publishable tenders and contract opportunities valued in excess of £10,000.

star this property answer text <p>In June 2014, BAE Systems notified the Department of a manufacturing issue (de-burring) affecting Typhoon aircraft rear fuselages. Testing is currently under way to substantiate how this may affect the long-term fatigue life of the airframe, although we believe that there will be little impact on the lifespan of the aircraft. Deliveries of new aircraft will continue as planned.</p><p> </p><p>Typhoon remains safe and is continuing normal operations without any performance impact or limitations.
