MoD awards Frazer-Nash air defence contract

Engineering company Frazer-Nash has been awarded a contract by the Ministry of Defence (MoD) to support the upgrade and replacement programme for the UK static, deployable and overseas Air Command and Control (ACC) systems.

Working closely with the MoD’s ACC Systems Delivery Team (ACCS DT), Frazer-Nash will develop supportability requirements for the UK’s next-generation air defence systems as part of a programme that encompasses a number of key areas, including replacement of the UK-static air defence command system, Falklands Islands Remoting System (FRS) and current deployable air assets.

The work will see Frazer-Nash supporting the programme until early 2011 to provide a set of user requirements for the availability, supportability and training elements of the programme and to explore the through-life capability of potential replacement options.

Once the assessment is complete Frazer-Nash will present its findings and recommendations to the MoD, paving the way for a new system in 2015.
