Marshall ADG receives GEOINT follow-on contract

7th May 2014 - 13:25 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group (ADG) will deliver additional shelters to Lockheed Martin for the British Army's new battlefield Geospatial Intelligence (GEOINT) system, following the issue of a follow-on contract.

Lockheed Martin UK leads Team SOCRATES, the team under contract to deliver the GEOINT system to the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD). The new contract calls for additional Field Deployable GEOINT (FDG) systems including a Forward Map Distribution Point (FMDP), further Tactical Map Distribution Points (TMDP) and Tactical Information and Geospatial Analysis System (TIGAS).

Marshall ADG is responsible for the design, manufacture, fit out and integrated logistics for the shelters which house the TIGAS, TMDP or FMDP systems. The TIGAS units are mounted onto MOWAG Duro 6x6 vehicles, whilst the other units are carried on the back of the MoD’s Support Vehicle provided by Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles and fitted with load beds manufactured by Marshall ADG.

Steve Fitz-Gerald, chief executive, Marshall ADG, said: ‘This follow on contract comes on the heels of the successful delivery and achievement of Initial Operating Capability (IOC) and confirms Team SOCRATES and Marshall ADG’s capability to build and integrate complex shelter systems.

‘At the core of our solution for the team has been a common, modular design which can be easily expanded to meet future requirements.’

FDG delivers a data centric, GEOINT management, discovery, dissemination and exploitation capability that addresses the deployable requirements of the UK’s Joint Force Intelligence Group, including the provision of mobile and manoeuvrable working environments at the tactical level.
