Air and Space Power Publication

The aim of the annual RAF Air and Space Power publication is to explain and promote the role of the RAF to policy makers, industry partners, academics and interested stakeholders both at home and internationally. As well as highlighting vital partnerships with industry, each issue also focuses on the key procurement activities, taskings and operations that the RAF has recently undertaken and shines a light on technology trends within the air sector. Along with articles by expert defence journalists, the publication also includes articles by senior RAF officers, international air chiefs and industry leaders.
