The Ministry of Defence (MoD) is seeking provider for the Land Environment Air Picture Provision (LEAPP) framework. This contract is valued at up to £10 million.
The MoD is replacing the vehicle-based LEAPP capability due to a change of operational use and current obsolescence issues. The LEAPP system provides air situational awareness to LAND HQs. The MoD’s requirement for LEAPP to have a small form factor, which is essential to allow its continued deployment into LAND HQ’s.
The new small factor system must integrate Giraffe-AMB radars using an ASTERIX standard, a Link 16 Multifunctional Information Distribution System-Joint Tactical Radio System (MIDS-JTRS) tactical data link terminal and external systems using a Joint Range Extension Applications Protocol-C (JREAP-C) interface. The means to connect the Command and Control (C2) to multiple G-AMB’s via both wireless and wired links is required. The LEAPP requirement is for the provision of 5 sets, each comprising C2, Human Machine Interface (HMI), TDL and communication equipment. Each set should be provided in ruggedised cases allowing the system to be man-portable in its component form.
The required Initial Operating Capability (IOC) timeline of January 2022 needs COTS/MOTS candidate systems to already be at production standard, TRL7 or higher. Whilst MIDS-JTRS terminals are being procured separately by the MoD as Government Furnished Assets (GFA), the contractor will be required to provide MIDS-JTRS ancillaries and undertake system integration activities for TDL and G-AMB’s.
The duration of the framework is three years.
The deadline for the submission of tenders is 17 March.
