The contract 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.

The contract is a new opportunity for Babcock to deliver world-class technical support and will allow its teams to embed robust ways for the MoD to perform critical operations. Babcock’s LSC solution, as part of BATCIS, enables the customer to provide assured Tactical Communication support to the end users, in the most efficient and effective manner.

Within the BATCIS Programme, Babcock will deliver an intelligent digital solution that provides cost effective, resilient support to the Land Equipment Tactical Communications Information Systems (LeTacCIS) equipment portfolio.

Working closely with the customer, Babcock 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.

Through a unique network of industry experts and service providers, Babcock has developed Team Connect to deliver all aspects of the LSC and utilise a wealth of expertise. The collaboration, building on similar principles from its successful Maritime System Support Partner programme, has established an effective and agile end-to-end supply chain to satisfy full lifecycle operations. The support chain will transition legacy arrangements and protocols and is focused on delivering a responsive and sustainable solution that offers value for money.

Babcock CEO David Lockwood said: “We will deliver a comprehensive programme with future ready solutions for the MoD through the Logistic Support Contract. Our extensive reach and capability harnesses innovation, building on our already successful support programmes and expertise across the defence industry. Our team is well placed to support our customer’s success and I’m delighted that Babcock is part of this solution.”
