Description: To sustain the UK's airborne electronic surveillance capability previously provided by the Nimrod R1 aircraft.
DCA (RAG): Amber/Green
DCA text: The AIRSEEKER Programme has continued to be highly successful, both in terms of the way in which it is being delivered but also in what is being achieved. Two of the 3 Rivet Joint aircraft have now been delivered and both have successfully deployed on operations during 2015. The infrastructure required to support the capability was completed on time and is now being fitted out to support operations from RAF Waddington. The remainder of the Programme, through to the Full Operating Capability milestone of 31 December 2017, will focus on completing the establishment of UK-based training facilities and on receiving the third aircraft: it is likely that this will all be completed ahead of the planned programme completion date.
Start date: 2010-03-18
End date: 2018-04-01
Schedule text: The Programme is on schedule and should complete ahead of the planned date for Full Operating Capability of 31 December 2017.
