The TCS Consortium which comprises Top Cover Solutions, 3SDL and Eagle Eye Innovations which owns RUSTA, has confirmed it has been awarded a MoD contract.
The group has been successful in the recent UK Air Command competition to provide simulator instructional support to front-line RAF MQ-9 Reaper squadrons.
The Consortium will be delivering training in tactics and procedures using the MALET-JSIL Aircrew Trainer (MJAT) simulator, embedded with XIII Sqn at RAF Waddington and 39 Sqn at Creech AFB.
The 12-month contract, with an option to extend, is due to commence from summer 2019.
All the TCS Consortium members, are SMEs that specialise in airborne ISTAR solutions and services.
The collaboration of SMEs, including RUSTA, is hoped to provide government, industry and MoD customers with access to expertise across the unmanned sector.
Through the MJAT contract, the TCS Consortium will be returning some of the most highly experienced MQ-9 Reaper Instructors and ISTAR practitioners to the RAF as part of the Whole Force.
Earlier this year, RUSTA revamped its course.
