IT business SciSys has entered into an agreement with Lockheed Martin UK to contribute to the British Army’s development programme of upgrading its Warrior armed fighting vehicle fleet.
The Chippenham-based company said the work on the Warrior Capability Sustainment Programme (WCSP) is set to be worth £5.78m to the business.
Lockheed Martin UK is responsible under the programme to upgrade and improve the fleet and as part of this SciSys is to supply an electronics architecture system known as the platform management software.
The software integrates and controls the systems on the Warrior upgrading its effectiveness. SciSys provided a prototype software system for an earlier phase of the programme and also provides similar systems to other customers including the RNLI.
Dr Mike Love, chairman of SciSys, said: “We are proud to be making a significant contribution to the WCSP programme that will support and help protect UK forces for years to come. For SCISYS, this is another key contract in the ‘electronic architecture’ niche that we have been investing and leading in over recent years. It also pays testament to the strength of our relationship with Lockheed Martin.”
SciSys also has an office in Bristol.
