Racal/Marconi in Anglo-French defence bid
Richard Wilson
Defence firms Racal Electronics and Marconi have teamed up with Thomson-CSF of France in a joint bid for the ?100m contract to supply the Ministry of Defence with communications infrastructure for Britain’s joint rapid reaction force.
Racal Radio, a division of Racal Electronics, has confirmed that the three firms made a joint bid for the system demonstration phase of the ministry’s Theatre Wide Area Communications Network requirement, to provide communications for the reaction force’s headquarters and air, sea and land components.
The system demonstration would narrow the bidders down from four to two and the contract would be awarded in late 2000. British Aerospace and Daimler Chrysler’s Dasa unit are also expected to bid for the contract.
