The TCS Consortium, comprising Top Cover Solutions, 3SDL and Eagle Eye Innovations, has announced its success in the recent U.K. Air Command competition to provide simulator instructional support to front-line Royal Air Force (RAF) MQ-9 Reaper squadrons. TCS Consortium will be delivering training in tactics and procedures using the MALET-JSIL Aircrew Trainer (MJAT) simulator, embedded with XIII Squadron at RAF Waddington and 39 Squadron at Creech Air Force Base. The 12-month contract, with an option to extend, is due to commence from summer 2019.

All the TCS Consortium members are Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) that specialise in airborne ISTAR solutions and services. This unique collaboration of SMEs is providing government and industry customers with access to its 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.
