Technology Partnership in Aeronautics

The DTI supports the aerospace and defence sector on a wide range of technology activity, for example: Environmental Impact Of Aviation.

The DTI ensures the international regulations and standards that are developed to minimise the impact of civil aviation are adequate, fair, contribute to the aviation industrys sustainability and are not in conflict with the legitimate interests of UK aerospace industries.

This requires policy development, co-ordination of research activities, environmental model development, project environmental assessment and environmental forecasts and scenarios. Close co-operation takes place with the Department for Transport, which takes technical advice from us. We co-operate with the International Civil Aviation Organization, European Civil Aviation Conference expert panel on the Abatement of Nuisances Caused by Air Transport (ECAC/ANCAT), United Nations Economic Commission For Europe (UNECE), and the Intergovernmental Panel On Climate Change (IPCC).

The National Defence And Aerospace Systems Panel (NDASP)

The panel brings together government, industry, academia and trade associations and aims to prepare the UK defence and aerospace sectors for the challenges of the future.
