Equipment should have a weight low enough to be comfortably manoeuvred in single handed operation whilst in full combat / protective dress. It is an essential requirement that this probe will be rugged enough to survive in a frontline operations environment with no or minimal repair required for the duration of extended missions.
The requirement is for an estimated quantity of 600 units to be provided to the MOD in batches over a the next 3 to 24 month period. It is envisaged that the probe will be in-service for a minimum duration of 10 years, with preferred solutions providing In-service support provided by the contractor for the same period.
The Authority invites expressions of interest from industry for the supply of a probe that can meet the capability defined above.
