Use(s): Taranis is a UCAS advanced technology demonstrator. It aims to contribute to the understanding of strategic UCAS, through the demonstration of relevant technologies and their integration into a representative system. The project brings together UK industry (BAE Systems, Rolls-Royce, the Systems division of GE Aviation and QinetiQ) and the MoD. It is jointly funded and will provide experimental evidence on potential capabilities and help inform decisions on the future mix of manned and unmanned fast jet aircraft. It will also explore and demonstrate how emerging technologies and systems can deliver battle-winning capabilities for the UK armed forces incorporating both an autonomous and survivable UAV concept design Manufacturer: BAE Systems Status: work is continuing towards first flight after completion of initial ground trials in 2011
