SCISYS secures new MOD research contract

SCISYS has been awarded a contract by the Ministry of Defence to deliver further research and software development services to the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl).

The contract, awarded through the MOD’s Framework Agreement for Technical Support – Design and Engineering (FATS D&E), comprises an initial one-year phase of work valued at £1.2 million, with the potential for this to grow to £3 million as subsequent phases are commenced during the next two years.

The project will create and demonstrate a new decision support system for use by the Royal Navy. The new system will exploit emerging technologies and improved human factors designs to enable better tactical decision-making against increasingly complex air threats.

Andy Whitehead, Divisional Director of Enterprise Solutions and Defence for SCISYS, said: “I am immensely proud of this win, which adds to our reputation for the reliable delivery of innovative R&D for Dstl. This extends SCISYS’ reach into the area of tactical combat systems in surface warships.”
