Babcock Partners With RAF to Progress Towards a Sustainable Aviation Future

Babcock has been selected to work with the RAF’s Rapid Capability Office (RCO), as it takes another significant step towards a sustainable aviation future.

Project MONET is set to progress the application of a range of sustainable aviation technologies, including the potential for synthetic fuelled internal combustion engines, hydrogen cell, and hybrid.

As part of Project MONET, Babcock, in partnership with UK-based SMEs: CFS Aero, Zero Petroleum, Delta Cosworth and Uplift 360 will be exploring emerging technologies that could minimise the environmental impact of light aircraft flying training.

Jon Russell, Babcock’s UK Aviation Engineering Director, said “Sustainability is an increasingly important factor for the aviation industry and an integral part of our strategy to support our customers. By working with the RCO, we will be advancing the technology that can be used to address environmental challenges, as well supporting the RAF’s goal to be net zero by 2040.”

Through this work, the hope is that Project MONET will provide a means by which the Ministry of Defence can gain important information that can be readily transferred to other environmentally conscious capability projects and developments.
