The current fighter jets of the Finnish Air Force, the Hornets, will be retired by 2030 and replaced. In order to acquire security of supply, 30% of the value of the procurement is used for industrial participation. Industrial participation should focus on performance and technology areas that are critical to Finnish national defense. The project will last 10 to 15 years.

Almost a hundred research ideas have been collected from within the Allied ICT Finland network. This project will refine these ideas into executable projects, in co-operation with companies and research institutions. This will also lay the groundwork for an ecosystem of companies and research institutions.

Allied ICT Finland (AIF) is the largest research-to-business ICT network in the Nordic region. AIF is a collaboration network of Finnish ICT research institutes and their cities, national ecosystems both applying and enabling ICT, thousands of researchers and more than 1200 companies.
