据Janes defence-news网2月18日报道

2月17日,英国国防部授予英国Aralis公司三年合同,继续发展模块化喷气式飞机。

该合同将为英国皇家陆军“快速能力办公室” (RCO) 通过采用Aralis公司的商业驱动飞机设计提升陆军未来装备系统作战能力计划保障需求和设计评审程序,提供解决方案。

公司首席执行官特里斯坦·克劳福德向英国防部副参谋长空军元帅理查德·奈顿表示:“Aeralis将聚焦未来军用飞机开发和操作方式再创新,采用我在空战领域从未见过的创新方法。”

称“它对模块化的巧妙利用和创新应用,并吸纳商业部门的经验教训,突破了几代人面临的军用快速喷气机项目开发经费开支过高的难题。”

Aeralis 公司于2018年底宣布了通用高级喷气式教练机系列开发项目,并于2020年代初期向市场投放共享飞机机身、座舱和发动机系统的基本和高级喷气教练机系列产品。

公司正在研发拥有进攻、特技飞行、地面攻击等其他功能的未来新概念Aeralis-X飞机。


RAF supporting Aeralis to continue development of modular jet aircraft

Aeralis has been awarded a three-year contract by the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) to continue development of its modular jet aircraft.

Announced by the UK-based company on 17 February, the award will see the Royal Air Force (RAF) Rapid Capabilities Office (RCO) support the requirements and design review process to gain an understanding of how Aeralis’s commercially-driven aircraft design could support the RAF’s ambition to rationalise its future fleet.

“Aeralis is focused on re-inventing how future military aircraft are developed and operated,” CEO Tristan Crawford said, with the Deputy Chief of Defence Staff, Air Marshal Richard Knighton, adding, “This private aircraft company is adopting an innovative approach that I have not seen before in the combat air sector. Its ingenious and innovative use of modularity, together with applying lessons learnt from the commercial sector offers the potential to break the capability cost curve that has dogged military fast jet programmes for many generations.”

While Aeralis did not provide a contract value, The Times newspaper reported it to be GBP200,000 (USD278,000).

Aeralis announced its common family of advanced jet trainer aircraft in late 2018, at which time it noted its aim of offering to the market in the early 2020s a basic and advanced jet trainer aircraft that share airframe, cockpit, and engine systems. A further concept aircraft, Aeralis-X, is being developed for other possible roles, such as aggressor, aerobatics, and ground attack.
