Inzpire & Discovery Air team up for ASDOT bid

Discovery Air Defence Services - Discovery Air Defence and Inzpire Join Forces to Deliver Air Support to Defence Operational Training Programme to the British Armed Forces

I know there is another thread on the Thales / Scorpionjet but this is coming in from a different angle and never know could have more promise?


Cheers

Inzpire is a proudly British company and was founded in 2005. As a joint-services organisation with more than 1,000 years of military experience...
The author was obviously feeling very inzpired when writing that!

'Inzpire'?! Is it really too much to ask for companies to just simply spell words correctly, instead of trying to come up with stupid sounding (and looking) buzzwords all the time?

Sounds better if you say it with a Cornish accent, just like Jethro.

RP,

You mean like QinitiQ? The first time I saw that, I thought "Why would anybody choose a name like Quinity Cue?"

How much did they pay someone for the "re-branding?

What was wrong with Kinetic?

I always thought the name "100 Sqn" was quite good. It's a shame this sort of thing seems to be falling out of vogue.

Really! Is that it? You don't like the name Inzpire? Get a life.

Or maybe all the normally spelt words are already trademarked companies ?

All this emphasis on the 'z'. You would wonder whether someone who was in the MAA is involved.

[For those not in the know, some in the MAA are fanatical about the use of the 'z' in words such as 'specialization' etc.]

Great, glad to hear it! I still don't see the need for the continuing trend of, er, trendy, stupid sounding/looking buzzwords as an excuse for a company name, India Four Two's mention of 'QinetiQ' is another good example!
I know it's all pretty irrelevant in the grand scheme of things, it's just something that irritates me though, I wonder if there's a cream for it?

And might be due to the fact that 'Inspire' is also the name of the in-house magazine of Dae'sh/IS.

At least that new word is easily pronounced in English; many of these made up words are not.

On made up names that have been around for decades, how about Kraft?

57, I'll allow you that one. How about amalgamated words then? Serco or Unilever.
