Bryan Harkness

Head of Programmes (Mission Systems)

Bryan joined BAE Systems in 1989 working across a number of engineering disciplines including trials, avionic integration and system development, primarily on Tornado GR1/1a and the GR4/4a Midlife Update.

He continued his career in engineering with DRA at Boscombe Down forming part of the team responsible for integrating new displays, mission computers, sensors and weapons to enhance the capabilities of the Jaguar aircraft operated by the RAF and Royal Airforce of Oman, progressing to the role of technical lead for the integration team.

Bryan expanded his experience of delivering technically and commercially complex integration programmes by becoming the technical lead for the development, clearance and trials management of the BVRAAM alternative trials platform before joining Inzpire Mission Systems as the Head of Delivery in October 2013.

Bryan strives to fit some sort of sporting excursions into his busy schedule, outside of which he loves nothing more than spending time with friends and family.
