DCA (RAG): Amber/Red
DCA text: Gateway Review (Amber/Red) due to the number of dependencies and uncertainty, mainly information and infrastructure. Infrastructure recommendations and findings continue to be addressed with the Lossiemouth Development Programme (LDP) now progressing on a programme footing, and the build of the strategic facility progressing ahead of schedule. Integrating the P-8A into the UK information environment remains a challenge, the pending approval for the Information Systems and Services (ISS) will support this process.
