Safran subsidiary Snecma and Rolls-Royse have agreed to continue the development of the next generation of combat aircraft engines following approvals from their respective French and UK governments.
The two companies will continue their efforts to explore propulsion system concepts and technologies as part of the Anglo-French future combat air systems (FCAS) demonstration program preparation phase contract through the Rolls-Royce Snecma Ltd joint-venture which was established in 2001.
“We are pleased that our two governments have confirmed the continuation of this program,” Didier Desnoyer, Snecma VP and GM Military Engines said in a statement. “Our teams are focused on delivering the highest capabilities from France and UK in (the) defence propulsion domain and meeting the challenging expectations of this program both on technical aspects and affordability.”
