New projects following the DSR, are they starting to emerge? Following the DSR I met a lot of people who were quite pessamistic about business opportunities in 2011. However when looking at the defence and aerospace primes, whilst there are programme cuts there are also increases, for example Harrier support is gone but Hawk is re-emerging in overseas markets. On land both the Ocelot (Force Protection) and ASCOD SV ( General Dynamics) will be growing this year. And the increase in spend on Cyber threat will undoubtably create a variety of programmes that need support. In addition to this the overseas market is now gaining more focus from these same organisations, and they are winning business because the UK is still seen as a leading provider of defence and aerospace technology. So I guess my question is, am I alone in seeing the glass as half full and not half empty. What programmes do you think are going to grow in 2011?
