The RAF’s Force Protection Force (FP Fce) are looking for suppliers to attend a trade show on 29 September 2020 at RAF Henlow.

The aspiration of the day is to inform FP Fce commanders, what next generation air force protection could look like. The future will undoubtedly draw more deeply on technology, artificial intelligence and unmanned air systems, and we are currently trying to understand how that can be integrated into the Complex Air Ground Environment. Commanders from across all elements of the FP Fce, be that RAF Regiment or RAF Police, and at all ranks, will have a chance to look at the propositions for the future and feed their thoughts back to the Capability desk in the HQ.

The day will comprise a number of people looking at the stands, with members of the RAF’s senior leadership team being invited along with our own FP Force Elements. Explanations and demonstrations of all capabilities are encouraged in order to truly bring all aspects to life.
