Japan's military is lagging in terms of its digitisation, but a smart base experiment could begin to turn the tide.
BAE Systems wins two RN support deals
BAE Systems has secured two contracts, worth up to £1.3 billion ($1.8 billion) over five years, from the UK MoD under the Future Maritime Support Programme.
The company will begin work at Portsmouth Naval Base on 1 October following a transition period from the legacy Maritime Support Delivery Framework contract.
BAE Systems will continue to deliver ship asset management, repair and maintenance for the entire Portsmouth flotilla under one £900 million contract.
It will also establish a JV with KBR (called KBS Maritime) to deliver ‘technology-led and data-driven facilities management and dockside services at the base’ under a separate £365 million contract.
