BAS is currently carrying out a major programme of Antarctic infrastructure and logistics modernisation. This programme includes the introduction into service of the new polar ship, the RRS Sir David Attenborough, re-development of the science research station at Rothera, Antarctica, facility upgrades at Sub-Antarctica research stations and the commissioning of a new air capability to support science into the future. Collectively the programme is referred to as the Antarctic Infrastructure Modernisation Programme (AIMP).

Osprey will provide a range of services from the definition of user requirements and specifications, to airworthiness, aircraft operating procedures, safety cases, regulatory support and the production of industry standard manuals. In addition, the Osprey team will provide specialist technical input to various BAS Working Groups and other project related forums.

Paul Roberts, Principal Consultant at Osprey said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be working with BAS on such an interesting and challenging project.  We have partnered with Nova Systems to deliver this contract, which will ultimately provide BAS with an exceptional team of technical specialists with both defence and civil aviation experience. We look forward to working with BAS to deliver an air capability that will safely, effectively and economically support their mission.”
