The MoU lays the framework for the two companies to work together on advanced aerospace technologies for both manned and unmanned air systems and platforms operating in a wide range of environments.
 
The MoU was signed on the Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group stand at the 2019 Defence Security Equipment International (DSEI) event in London by Marshall CEO Alistair McPhee and BAE Systems Air Sector Engineering Director Ian Muldowney.
 
Ian Muldowney said: “We are delighted to sign this agreement with Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group. Technology and innovation are central to BAE Systems’ strategy, underpinning the continued development of our products and services.

"We have a long and proud track record of successful collaboration across industry and academia in pursuit of fast paced technological advantage and we are now looking forward to further developing the relationship between our two companies.“
 
Alistair McPhee said: “BAE Systems is working on some truly innovative programmes which contribute to the UK Combat Air Strategy. We are very excited collaborating on specific advanced engineering activities that exploit the breadth and depth of our applied engineering skills, combining innovation and agility, across a wide range of next generation technology demonstrations.”
 
The collaboration will include high value design, hypersonics, advanced modelling and simulation. The two companies are seeking to exchange their specialist engineering resources for selected national and international programmes.
 
Both parties have stated that they will build on the MoU with a view to agreeing a more wide-ranging formal collaboration agreement once the full scope work streams have been ratified and agreed.
