Babcock International and Elbit Systems entered a partnership agreement to pursue UK Ministry of Defence’s Air Support to Defence Operational Training (ASDOT) program to create the next generation of aggressor air capabilities.

The two companies already work together in the training world, successfully delivering advanced flight training capabilities on time as part of UK Military Flying Training System program.

“This [program] will enable the UK’s Armed Forces to train against representative live airborne threats with innovation and flexibility, responding to the changing environment and changing defense requirements,” said Martin Fausset, CEO of Elbit Systems UK.
