Description: To deliver a Maritime Patrol Aircraft (MPA) to provide persistent, responsive, effective and adaptive Military Capabilities in the Under Water, Above Water, Littoral and Land environments.
DCA (RAG): Amber/Red
DCA text: Delivery confidence has remained at Amber/Red this quarter, due to the significant number of dependencies within the MPA Programme, and to improve to Amber, assistance will be needed in a number of areas. Coordination of the infrastructure work at RAF Lossiemouth, which covers a number of different projects including P-8A, will be improved now that this work has been put onto a programme footing and with the appointment of a Senior Responsible Owner. Work to construct the P-8A strategic facility has now commenced, and very significant progress continues to be made on the other programme fundamentals, especially cooperation with other allies who are also acquiring the P-8A (US, Norway and Australia); these nations continue to offer staunch support to the UK.
