Period: July–September 2013

Background

The British Ministry of Defence was planning to invite tenders for new communication for CNS (Communication, Navigation, Surveillance) in all RAF bases. BAE in England was planning to respond to this call for tender together with Swedish LFV.

Scope

Replacing existing infrastructure for CNS in all 130 RAF bases “wordwide”.

Assignment

Clear Point’s assignment was to develop 15 type configurations including solution concepts for the hardware for CNS communication over IP.

Result

ClearPoint delivered the 15 approved type configurations ordered by BAE on time.

Challenges & dependencies

ClearPoint’s biggest challenge was the short time for the assignment and the uncertainty surrounding the details in BAE:s approach on the tender. Dependencies on existing network infrastructure at the RAF bases also had impact on the developed solutions.
