Description: The Complex Weapons (CW) portfolio/pipeline meets the UK’s requirements through an innovative approach that enables delivery of 'world-class' CW capability within a significantly reduced (c£1Bn over 10 years) resource envelope. The key principle of the CW portfolio/pipeline approach is maximising system level commonality and sub-system/technology level modularity and re-use. This approach is enabled by a consistent pipeline of funding which provides stability to the UK's CW sector in return for greater flexibility to the MoD and sustainment of the industrial skills and capabilities required to safeguard Operational Advantage and Freedom of Action.

DCA text: A routine MPA Project Assessment Review (PAR) was carried out in Nov 12. This assessment confirmed that strategically the programme was on track to deliver the required outputs and outcomes, however noted that challenges associated with the programme's complex governance arrangements and manpower resourcing in critical areas required immediate attention. To address these issues the SRO has implemented new governance arrangements for capability planning and delivery. These new arrangements serve to provide greater levels of visibility and assurance to Front Line Command customers and wider stakeholders. This will evolve and be further embedded throughout 2013/14. Additional actions to address the additional recommendations of the PAR team are in place and being delivered.

Schedule text: One of the 27 projects within the CW Programme, the Selected Precision Effects at Range Capability 2 Block 1, was delayed by 23 months due to problems with rocket motor and warhead development. Design and configuration changes are being introduced and undergoing verification/validation and although Qualification is yet to be achieved, confidence is high that these fixes will address the technical issues.
