UK Defence Drone Strategy launched at Malloy Aeronautics

February 22, 2024 - Malloy Aeronautics welcomed Minister for Defence Procurement, James Cartlidge and Commander of Strategic Command, General Sir Jim Hockenhull as they announced a new government strategy to support the development and deployment of uncrewed systems to the UK Armed Forces.

The UK Defence Drone Strategy will create a unified approach across all three military services and industry to enable the rapid experimentation, testing, evaluation and procurement of uncrewed platforms.

BAE Systems who recently announced the acquisition of Malloy Aeronautics have invested in uncrewed systems across land, sea and air domains for many years and the new strategy is an important next step.

The strategy will help academia and industry to build on the UK’s already world-renowned leadership in this technology and increase the pace at which we can identify opportunities and collaborate to deliver new capabilities across all domains.
