Team Hersa, the MOD Centre of Excellence for Laser and RF Directed Energy Weapons, understand that industry will face difficulties during the challenging times generated by the Covid-19 outbreak.
Team Hersa has received business case approval for the portfolio of Capability Demonstrators and we currently intend to hold our existing milestones. Our expectation is to initiate the competitions in April and award contracts to successful bidders before the end of 2020.
We understand that this may create difficulties for industry and will look to understand the impact as the situation unfolds, considering, if necessary, an adjustment to the timelines but this would be applied to all bidders when the competitions are initiated.
More information will follow as the Covid-19 situation develops.
