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.
