MLS and ASC eye Canadian DND SEV Kitting Programme
Marshall Land Systems (MLS) Cambridge UK and Armatec Survivability Corporation (ASC) have announced that jointly respond to the tender for the Special Equipment Vehicle (SEV) kitting contract for the Canadian Department of National Defence.
The SEV contract falls under Canada’s Medium Support Vehicle System programme that is seeking up to 1000 SEV kits to be transported on Militarized Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (MilCOTS) and Standard Military Pattern (SMP) vehicles. A Request for Proposals for ‘kitting’ of the baseline shelters was issued in 2010.Under the joint MLS and ASC response, a joint supply chain is being established, while the supply network will be based on Armatec’s existing suppliers and MLS’s discussions with potential Canadian based suppliers from all over Canada.
According to a joint statement, the aim is to provide a tender that stresses the team’s purpose of delivering stores and components to the right place at the right time so that the team can make a best value, on time, delivery to DND of approximately 800 shelters that have to be fitted out as part of any resulting contract the successful bidder will receive. The shelters are broken down into several distinct module groups depending on their role and requirements.
