UK has produced a prototype Unmanned Combat Aerial Vehicle named Taranis. A collaboration of BAE Systems, Roll-Royce, QinetiQ & GE Aviation with MoD and millions of man hours in 3 years has made a giant step forwards in UK's unmanned fast-jet capability. Its stealth ability allows the UCAV to engage in intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance & possibly long-range attack. Trials will begin next year. This technology is key to sustaining a strong industrial base and to maintain the UK's leading position as a centre for engineering excellence and innovation.
