The NATO Eurofighter 2000 and Tornado Management Agency (NETMA) is the prime customer and management body for the four-nation Eurofighter Typhoon Weapon System programme.[1] Its offices are located in Hallbergmoos, Germany [2] and it is staffed by civilian and military secondees from the participating nations – the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy and Spain. Since February 2014 the General Manager has been Air Vice-Marshal Graham Farnell of the Royal Air Force.[3]

NETMA was established in 1996 to replace two former organisations – the NATO Multirole Combat Aircraft Development and Production Management Agency (NAMMA) and the NATO EFA Development Production and Logistics Management Agency (NEFMA). It is responsible for the joint development and production of both the Typhoon and the NATO Multi-Role Combat Aircraft, namely the Panavia Tornado.
