Team Tempest is a global network of international partners formed by the Royal Air Force Rapid Capability Office (RCO) along with BAE Systems, Rolls Royce, MBDA and Leonardo. SecureCloud+ is the only SME to be part of the team, which is collaborating to meet a vision outlined in the UK Government’s defence modernisation plans. Team Tempest has signed a contract to develop a Next Generation Combat Air System capable of operating in the 2040+ environment.
 
Peter Williamson, founder and CEO of SecureCloud+, said: “We have a proven track record of delivering defence contacts on time and on budget using modern technologies to promote better communications. Our innovation and agility are critical components to rapidly build and develop greater collaboration.

“We are pleased to support Team Tempest and the vision for the Future Combat Air System Technology Initiative.  This contract reinforces our commitment to innovation. And it is not just about secure collaboration – it is also about managing digital assets across industries to remove barriers to sharing and building trusted teamwork.”

Air Commodore Linc Taylor: “This is a critical programme that will deliver huge value for UK military defence capabilities. We have a long history of delivering world-class combat systems through collaboration with our best industries; this capability offers us the ability to fundamentally change the way we work and share information within and across our teams.”
