FAC Heads west for unique UAV opportunities

Farnborough Aerospace Consortium : 30 October, 2007  (New Product)
Members of FAC, the Farnborough Aerospace Consortium will be heading West next month across the Atlantic to North East Canada as part of an international trade mission to promote UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles), a growing area of the UK Aerospace and Defence Market.

The trip comes as result of an invitation by the Atlantic Alliance of Aerospace & Defence Associations (AAADA) based in Nova Scotia, Canada. AAADA is the trade association representing the Aerospace and Defence industries in Canada and North East America with members including Raytheon, Sikorsky and Pratt & Witney.

The main objective of the trip has been to invite a select group of FAC members to explore business opportunities. Eight members including QinetiQ, Selex Sensors & Airborne Systems and VTOL Technologies will be heading out to Canada on 2 November for a week long tour of AAADA member companies as well as face to face meetings.

Leading the team from FAC will be Guy Horsley, UAV Sector Leader and MARVIN Facilitator who has been fundamental to the growth of this specialist sub-group within FAC over the last three years.

Commenting on the trip, Guy said, 'We were approached earlier this year as result of discussions between AAADA and SEEDA, the South East England Development Agency with regard to organising a trip to meet with UAV specialists in Canada. Our members will be attending a variety of meetings across the area including attending Canada's leading conference on Unmanned Vehicle Systems towards the end of the week. We hope that this will be a knowledge sharing exercise as well as generating real business for our members and the Canadian companies we will be meeting.

'The Canadians are very keen to do business with our UK members and we are seen as world leaders in UAV technologies. We see our role at FAC as being one of an enabler to encourage and develop business within our membership and the outside word.'
