The Battlefield and Tactical Communications & Information Systems (BATCIS) Delivery Team (DT) within MOD is responsible for the through life management of Land Environment Tactical CIS (LE TacCIS). This includes the littoral and air components within that environment.
MORPHEUS is a Programme that will deliver the next generation of Tactical CIS (Tac-CIS) capability, addressing critical system obsolescence and introducing a more agile Tac-CIS solution (both technical and business) that will enable emergent technology to be rapidly exploited for User benefit, will be more responsive to changes in User need, and will realise efficiencies in the way in which Tac-CIS capability is acquired and supported
The role of the MORPHEUS Systems House is to generate high level technical architectures and business constructs against the MORPHEUS requirement and to provide corresponding performance, cost, time and risk data, with requirement impact assessment, to enable the Authority to assess Acquisition Options and identify requirement trades. In undertaking these responsibilities, the MORPHEUS Systems House will be required to engage with potential future suppliers of the MORPHEUS capability (Delivery Partners, OEMS, SMEs, technologists and others) in order to capture their views and inform the viability of each option from both a technical and business perspective.
Industry representatives who are able to contribute to the technical, commercial and business aspects are invited to register their interest in attending by the closing date of 28 January 2015.
