Babcock International has secured a five-year, £150 million Logistic Support Contract (LSC) for the UK Ministry of Defence (MOD). The contract is part of the MOD’s £3.2 billion Battlefield and Tactical Communication Information Systems (BATCIS) programme, which will deliver the next generation tactical communications and information systems – including adjacent air & littoral assets and the dismounted close combat soldier – to the British military.

Babcock’s LSC solution will deliver an intelligent digital solution that provides cost effective, resilient support to the BATCIS programme, spanning four critical services to the British Armed Forces: inventory management, inventory modelling, information management and technical services. Babcock’s LSC solution also includes a unique network of industry experts and service providers brought together by Babcock Team Connect. The network supports industry-leading best practice and knowledge-sharing, ensuring effective and agile end-to-end supply chain operations across the full lifecycle of the programme.

Babcock Australasia CEO David Ruff said: “Being selected to deliver the Morpheus Logistic Support contract reinforces Babcock’s credentials in digital support solutions, industry-wide collaboration and partnership across the spectrum of the Armed Forces. Together with our partners, we will introduce a new level of logistic support that enables the customer to regain sovereignty over their critical communications systems. In Australia, we look forward to future opportunities where we can demonstrate how this approach can deliver improved outcomes for Capability Acquisition and Sustainment Group and the Australian Army.”
