Aerospace and Defence Company Babcock International has secured a five-year, £150 million Logistic Support Contract (LSC) with the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD).
The deal forms part of the £3.2 billion Battlefield and Tactical Communication Information Systems (BATCIS) programme of opportunities to deliver the next-generation tactical communications and information systems, including adjacent air and littoral assets, and the dismounted close combat soldier.
Within the BATCIS programme, Babcock will deliver an intelligent digital solution that offers cost-effective, resilient support to the Land Equipment Tactical Communications Information Systems (LeTacCIS) equipment portfolio.
The provider will deliver four critical services: inventory management, inventory modelling, information management and technical services to the BATCIS team in support of their delivery to the wider Armed Forces.
David Lockwood, Babcock CEO said: “We will deliver a comprehensive programme with future-ready solutions for the MoD through the logistics support contract. Our extensive reach and capability harnesses innovation, building on our already successful support programmes and expertise across the defence industry.”
