Description: Meteor is a 6-Nation Beyond Visual Range Air to Air Missile programme which the UK leads. The UK, along with the other Eurofighter development partners will integrate Meteor onto its Tranche 2 and 3 Typhoon aircraft as a replacement for the Advanced Medium Range Air-to-Air Missile (AMRAAM) C5 missile in the later part of the decade. Assessments are also being undertaken on the feasibility of integrating Meteor onto the UK's F-35 aircraft.
DCA (RAG): Green
DCA text: No Departmental Actions currently required.
Start date: 1995-10-20
End date: 2019-12-01
Schedule text: The project end date reflects the end of the production run for the UK's Meteor missiles, which is the last main outturn milestone. The programme will however continue by supporting the missile in-service throughout the planned life of the Typhoon platform. The production programme remains fully on track with Meteor's first missile expected to be delivered on time by December 2012.
Baseline: £60.87m
Forecast: £60.87m
Variance: 0.00%
Variance text: Not required as variance is with +/- 5%.
Whole Life Cost: £1,185.34m
WLCost text: The budgeted whole life costs are based on a combination of sunk costs, contractually agreed figures and estimates based on past metrics. They also assume that the in-service support of Meteor and any mid-life updates will continue to be undertaken collaboratively by the programme's development partners. Any change in the collaborative arrangements will impact on the UK's whole life costs.
