Babcock and BAE Systems will be involved in four support development phase work-streams – Class Management, Design Management, Maintenance Management, and Information Knowledge Management.  Under these work-streams Babcock and BAE Systems will design technical services and maintenance solutions to ensure the carriers are available for their operational requirements.

Mike Whalley, Babcock Managing Director Warships said:  “We have a unique and timely opportunity to deliver an innovative support solution that is focussed not only on the successful transition of the Queen Elizabeth Class into Service but will also underpin and de-risk her operational support programme worldwide.  This is further testament to the benefits of operating in an enterprise with BAE Systems, Royal Navy and the Ministry of Defence to deliver optimised engineering support.”
