The FCAS Program and the Future of European Air Combat Capabilities

The FCAS Program and the Future of European Air Combat Capabilities

The Future Combat Air System (FCAS), a collaborative project between Dassault and Airbus, aims to redefine air combat capabilities in Europe. Much more than a fighter aircraft, it is to be a system of systems, a fleet of manned and unmanned systems combined to dominate the airspace in the battlespace of the future.

Last Fall, we had the opportunity to gain exclusive insight about this project from Bruno Fichefeux, Head of Future Combat Air Systems at Airbus Defence and Space. He discusses the overall vision of the project to operate in a post2035 environment, its next key landmarks, how the system will operate with existing fleets and how industry collaboration will make this project a reality.
