star this property answer text <p>The E-7 Wedgetail is a military derivative based on the Boeing 737 NG civil aircraft and has always been produced by modifying that aircraft with a sophisticated radar and mission system suite along with other military systems. Wherever the E-7 is produced it involves the modification of the base aircraft and by undertaking this work at Marshall Aerospace and Defence in Cambridge we have ensured that several hundred highly-skilled jobs have been sustained in the United Kingdom.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>While the E-7 Wedgetail is a mature, proven technology, it is produced to order and there is not a constant production line for the aircraft. However, the production line for the base Boeing 737 NG aircraft is still fully operational and has confirmed orders that will see it continuing for several years to come. Work is currently underway to establish a line to undertake the conversion work of the base 737 NG into the E-7 Wedgetail at Marshall Defence and Aerospace in Cambridge in preparation for our first aircraft to enter the modification process in 2021.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The schedule for delivery of our aircraft was a key part of our contractual negotiations with Boeing and, as part of the due diligence process, it was subjected to scrutiny and a thorough risk assessment. Consequently, we are confident that the agreed average 24-month modification schedule accurately reflects the expected duration for a project of this nature and scope. Boeing has identified an experienced team to manage the modification programme to ensure it is successful. For this project, Boeing has recruited individuals with a wealth of experience from previous E-7 modification programmes from the US and Australia, who have been involved in all the previous customer programmes. Throughout the project there will, of course, be regular reviews to monitor progress and ensure that it remains on track.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The E-7 is based on the Boeing 737 NG aircraft and not the 737 MAX so is not affected by the current issues with that variant. Similarly, the E-7 project is independent of the KC-46. Boeing has identified an experienced team to manage the modification programme to ensure it is successful. For this project, Boeing has recruited individuals with a wealth of experience from previous E-7 modification programmes from the US and Australia, who have been involved in all the previous customer programmes. Throughout the project there will, of course, be regular reviews to monitor progress and ensure that it remains on track and is appropriately resourced. Boeing is a company of the size and scale to be able to flexibly manage its resources across multiple priorities from a wealth of available skills and experience.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>There has not been any deferral of contracting for these additional services. It is common in acquisition projects of this size and complexity to adopt an incremental procurement approach that enables a better alignment of the build-up of the aircraft fleet and capability with the points at which such additional services are actually required. An overriding consideration in any contract is, of course, to seek best value for money for defence, and there are a variety of mechanisms available to ensure this, including competition or the application of Single Source Contracts Regulations.</p> more like this

The profit rate for the contract has been agreed in accordance with the SSCR six-step calculation process which begins with the baseline profit rate applicable at the time of contract placement.</p> more like this

Any such companies were wholly-owned by the Defence Secretary and came under the umbrella of Admiralty Holdings Limited (AHL). Their scope and number varied from time to time according to the opportunities that presented themselves and any changes requiring approval from the owner. AHL was operated on the owner's behalf by UKHO. All companies are currently dormant are therefore no longer active.</p> more like this
