Babcock receives SSDD contract
Babcock has received a configuration management contract to support the UK Royal Navy and the Royal Fleet Auxiliary surface ship fleet, the company announced on 4 February.
The four-year contract, awarded by the UK Ministry of Defence, also includes potential extension options.
Under the contract, Babcock will be responsible for the Surface Ship Definition Database, a tool used to manage platform related data.
The contract covers existing programmes as well as new projects including the Queen Elizabeth Class aircraft carriers, with Babcock embedding and, where necessary, upgrading existing data management systems to support through-life support programmes.
Operation of the Master Record Data Centre (MRDC) ships is the core facility for ship information configuration services and delivers activities including equipment ship fit configuration; ship datum document configuration; and defect report management via the Surface Ship Equipment Data Record.
The work of the MRDC (Ships) will ensure the availability of the necessary systems and equipment including the associated maintenance and spares information to meet navy demand.
