‘One day we are partners and one day we are competitors.’

The Challenge of cooperation.

IOTICS is working with some of the key stakeholders in the defence sector to enable them to overcome some of the challenges faced by the industry when it come to the sharing of sensitive data across a muti-domain environment.


How can the defence industry work together securely to share insights and digital capabilities in a meaningful way to address their challenges and problems around sustainable aviation?

Louise Donaghey FRAeS, Services Programmes Director at Rolls-Royce, UK Aero Fleet, talks to Ali Nicholl on The IOTICS Podcast about the challenges and great opportunities in her net zero mission and initiative around Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF).

The podcast discusses how digital cooperation is a meaningful way to address challenges in the aviation industry when it comes to Net Zero and the mission of working toward Net Zero in both civil and military aviation, plus Louise discusses some of the initiative she is part of at Rolls Royce and the collaboration with organisations such as the UK Ministry of Defence, the Royal Air Force, Airbus and BP on its ground-breaking project to power the Typhoon by SAF alone.


Imagine a defence sector not held back by siloed and disparate systems but strengthened by a multi-domain, interoperable ecosystem.

The IOTICS team reflect on the need for change, and pace of change, the UK defence industry must make to meet the challenges it faces today, including those highlighted in the Defence Command Paper Refresh (DCP23) released in July and from the keynote speeches at recent defence sector events.

Our blog series focuses on interoperability within the Defence sector, demonstrating why it’s the key to unlocking potential innovation across a multi-domain landscape. Click here to learn more.
