BAE Systems Air Sector engineering is responsible for the design and build of fixed wing military and training aircraft, unmanned air vehicles, as well as providing training, support and information services for the UK RAF and other customers worldwide.

Software is the critical enabling technology for modern platforms and network enabled capability.

Software accounts for around 20% of the UK defence procurement budget and a significant proportion of support costs.
Platforms such as Typhoon and F-35 Lightning II have 80-90% of their functions enabled by software.
Software acquisition and development often results in significant project risks that impact on budget, schedule or customer needs.
Software Engineering delivers technical solutions into Air Sector Products. Software forms an increasingly large and complex component in Air Sector Products and hence is a key implementation technology for the Air Sector business. The control of key risks associated with the acquisition of software components in Air Sector products is vital to their successful deployment and support through operational life.
