The purpose of this notice is to inform the Government & Defence Communications Information Systems (CIS) market of the TRINITY project’s Market Engagement Day which the Ministry of Defence (MOD) will host on 16 May 2018. The MOD is interested in seeking Potential Suppliers’ views on the current thinking behind the TRINITY requirement and on how this might best be met. The session will provide Potential Suppliers with background and detail on the TRINITY project, provide Potential Suppliers with the opportunity to ask questions, network & engage with other industry suppliers of direct and supporting services as well as to further inform the Authority’s thinking.
The BATCIS Delivery Team manages a diverse range of Battlefield Communication and Information System capabilities for defence. The bulk of these capabilities are part of the Land Equipment Tactical Communication Information Systems (LE TacCIS) programme.
Under the LE TacCIS programme, the TRINITY Project Team is developing the requirements for a system integrator, system design, equipment supply and support provision for a new Wide Area Network (WAN) capability for the Battlespace by 2020 – “Broadband in the Battlespace”.
