Lincoln-based Inzpire Limited has been awarded a contract to provide subject matter expertise to support the development of training for the RAF's future ISR asset, the Protector Remotely Piloted Air System.



The contract will see Inzpire personnel involved in the development of the Training Needs Analysis and Synthetic requirements to support the full range of personnel needed to operate and maintain this state of the art system.

Paul Rolfe, Head of Inzpire’s Unmanned and ISTAR Division said: “We are delighted to have been selected to support this innovative programme.  The technological complexity, challenging timeline and shear range of advanced training requirements needed to bring this pioneering program into service is hugely exciting.

"In selecting Inzpire for this contract the MoD has demonstrated enormous trust and support to local Small to Medium Size Companies and we intend to provide the highest level of service over the next two years”.

Inzpire’s Unmanned and ISTAR Experts Division comprises a team of dedicated aircrew and training professionals with experience across the armed services. 

The division has thousands of hours’ military experience from years of operating tactical and strategic ISTAR platforms including unmanned and large fixed wing aircraft.
