PHASA-35 briefed to Chief Scientific Adviser

PHASA-35 briefed to Chief Scientific Adviser

The UK’s Chief Scientific adviser, Dr. Patrick Vallance, visited the BAE stand at New Scientist Live and took the opportunity to hear about Prismatic’s PHASA-35 solar powered HALE UAV, of which two prototypes are now being built in collaboration with BAE. As part of the collaboration agreement between BAE and Prismatic, BAE are seconding a number of graduates and apprentices to Prismatic to ensure that the PHASA-35 system can be successfully transferred into BAE production and operations. New Scientist Live gave the ideal opportunity to see how new engineers are being encouraged and developed to support the UK’s high value manufacturing capability and how BAE are working with agile SMEs such as Prismatic to bring novel developments more effectively to the market.
