star this property answer text <p>The Ministry of Defence continues to sustain and deliver multiple intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition, and reconnaissance (ISTAR) programmes in line with our announcements during the Strategic Defence and Security Review 2015. These capabilities enable us to build our understanding across the five domains of Space, Maritime, Land, Air and Cyber. We also continue to benefit from significant investment in our ability to share intelligence across Government and with key Allies.</p><p> </p><p>During 2016, two major ISTAR programmes sponsored by Joint Forces Command and now in delivery with the Royal Air Force received approval to proceed to the demonstration and manufacture phases of the acquisition cycle. The P-8A Poseidon maritime patrol aircraft will be operated from RAF Lossiemouth and enhance our ability to counter an increasing submarine threat. Protector will replace Reaper as the UK's armed remotely piloted air system (RPAS) capability and will be equipped with UK precision-guided weapons.</p><p> </p><p>Our Signals Intelligence capability has been enhanced by improvements to Royal Navy platforms and by the recent delivery of the third Airseeker aircraft.</p><p> </p><p>We have also learned much from the investment in our ability to fuse open source intelligence with more traditional sources, and our ability to analyse this increasing amount of data will be improved by further investment in data science capabilities.</p><p> </p><p>Finally, in order to ensure the UK remains one step ahead of our adversaries, we continue to invest in science and technology to develop new sensors and improve our ability to exploit information.</p><p> </p><p> </p>

This means that there will always be a coroner investigation, including an inquest, into the death of a member of the Armed Forces on exercises or operations, or where a death has occurred as a result of suicide or an accident, even when the death has occurred overseas and the Service person is returned to England and Wales. In some limited circumstances, for example where a death is a result of natural causes, the coroner has no jurisdiction to investigate.</p><p>Section 17 of the 2009 Act also provides that the Chief Coroner must monitor investigations into the deaths of Service personnel and ensure that coroners are trained to deal with such deaths.</p><p>Policy as to when a Fatal Accident Inquiry would take place is a matter for the Scottish Government, as this is a devolved matter.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>
