HMS Vengeance and BAE Systems Business Partnership 

The Friends of HMS Vengeance to date is all about partnerships and a major player in the world's marine and aerospace industry, BAE SYSTEMS, has been discussing about joining us in saving the VENGEANCE and hopefully assisting in the Vengeance Naval Aviation Heritage Museum venture. It has already held meetings with the Vengeance Team and made visits to Brazil. Recognising the importance of, and need for, a showcase centre for British naval aviation and maritime heritage, the company is looking at options to assist in the project. Again by comparison they put recently £5 million into the Air Space project at Duxford. 

BAE SYSTEMS (British Aerospace (BAe) till 1999) and its predecessors have a strong heritage link with naval aviation, a relationship which dates back to manned flight and early wireless communications, and maintains a strong presence in Hampshire, Southampton and Portsmouth the county & local cities near where the Vengeance will be eventually berthed. The company continues to maintain a link to the name Vengeance. The last, HMS Vengeance, the Vanguard Class SSBN Trident II submarine, was ordered in 1992, and was constructed at what is now BAE Systems Marine, at Barrow-in-Furness. BAE SYSTEMS continues to be involved in aircraft development including the Sea Harrier FA2, Harrier II , Harrier II Plus, in service with the Royal Navy as a fleet defence fighter, and the T45 Goshawk which is the US Navy’s principle Carrier Qualification Training Aircraft developed for the US Navy from the BAE SYSTEMS Hawk. BAE SYSTEMS and Lockheed Martin are partners in the development of the X-35   Joint Strike Fighter (JSF), the next-generation multi-role fighter. Variants of the JSF are being developed for use by the Royal Navy.  In addition BAE SYSTEMS participates in various regional aircraft events, conferences and airshows throughout the year. 

BAE SYSTEMS will also contribute to the future heritage of naval aviation, taking part in the future aircraft carrier (CVF) project of the Royal Navy to build two new carriers. At 40-50,000 tonnes, the two new carriers will be twice the size of the existing Invincible-class carriers, and twice the size of the former HMS Vengeance. BAE Systems leads a team with Harland and Wolff and Rolls Royce which have been awarded contracts by the MoD defence procurement executive to study the three alternative configurations - CTOL, STOVL and STOBAR - and key ship technologies. The prime contractor selection will be made in 2004 with an in-service date of 2012. The second ship should enter service in 2015.

The potential for BAE SYSTEMS support for the Vengeance is high. BAE SYSTEMS had for some time been seeking a centre on which to focus their heritage activity and has already selected Duxford as one of its leaders in the field. Chairman Sir Richard Evans, CBE said he was impressed by the scale and quality of their operation and dynamic, hands-on approach to education. It is hoped that BAE Systems recognise that Vengeance Naval Aviation Heritage Museum will be central to preserving Britain's naval aviation and maritime heritage and educating the engineers of tomorrow as a project of national importance. A proposed special section on BAE SYSTEMS' own heritage will include exhibits tracing back its corporate predecessors involvement in Naval Aviation and Maritime History.
