Long-range radars in Falklands require support, says MoD
The UK MoD announced on 11 November that it is seeking 30 months of contractual logistical support from industry for three Type 101 (BAE Systems Commander SL) mobile radars that are deployed in the Falkland Islands for long-range air surveillance.
Interested parties have until 10 December 2021 to respond.
