DSEI 2019: Athena C2 vehicle revealed
General Dynamics Land Systems-UK (GDLS-UK) presented the Athena command-and-control (C2) variant of the Ajax AFV family for the first time at the 2019 Defence and Security Equipment International (DSEI) exhibition in London, held on 10-13 September.

The Athena variant is designed to provide digital C2 for the UK's future Strike Brigades, which will consist of the tracked Ajax and wheeled Boxer AFV families.

The Ajax family will consist of six variants and "all variants are now in the initial production phase", GDLS-UK vice-president Carew Wilks told Jane's at DSEI.

The first Ares armoured personnel carriers (APCs) have already been delivered to the British Army for initial training and reliability growth trials ahead of the family's initial operational capability (IOC), which is expected by 2021, Wilks added.

Ajax deliveries to British Army delayed
Deliveries of production standard Ajax armoured vehicles to the British Army have been delayed, missing a key target to allow soldiers to start training to use their new vehicles.

The UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) confirmed to Jane’s on 15 January that a target for the manufacturer, General Dynamics Land Systems-UK (GDLS-UK), to deliver the first squadron set of vehicles by the end of 2019, had been missed.

The ministry told Jane's in March 2019 that the first squadron would begin receiving vehicles, comprised of a mix of all six variants, in mid-2019 and the first turret variant fitted with the CTA International 40 mm cannon would be delivered between July and September 2019. It was then intended that the Household Cavalry Regiment would begin training on the vehicles for a year before the declaration of an initial operational capability (IOC) in mid-2020.

To date only six Ares basic troop carrying vehicles, known as the mobility reconnaissance support variant, have been delivered to the British Army Armour Centre at Bovington in Dorset, according to an MoD source. "The seventh Ares vehicle has entered the final stages of testing and will be delivered to the Household Cavalry Regiment in the coming months," said the source. "No 40 mm turreted Ajax has yet been delivered to the army."

The first Ajax squadron is expected to require 20-25 Ajax family vehicles, including a mobility reconnaissance support, turreted reconnaissance, command, engineer, recovery, and repair variants before it can declare IOC.

An MoD spokesperson told Jane's on 15 January, "our target for Ajax initial operating capability remains July 2020".

Auf der Website von GDUK steht noch ein ganz alter Zeitplan:
What next for AJAX?
  • Further AJAX pre-production prototypes to be rolled-out through 2016
  • Completion of UK Ministry of Defence Armoured Fighting Vehicle trials for all seven prototypes to be completed through 2015-2018
  • 589 AJAX platforms to be delivered to the British Army through 2017-2024, along with the provision of in-service support and training
  • The training establishment and first squadron will be equipped by mid-2019 to allow conversion to begin with a brigade ready to deploy from the end of 2020.

United Kingdom-Bristol: Security, fire-fighting, police and defence equipment

2020/S 080-189826

Voluntary ex ante transparency notice

Supplies

II.1.1) Title:

Upgrade of Warrior 1 to Warrior 2 (WCSP)
II.1.4) Short description:

WCSP will upgrade the current Warrior Infantry Fighting Vehicle (IFV) to meet the requirements of the British Army and extend its scheduled Out of Service Date to 2040+.
II.1.7) Total value of the procurement (excluding VAT)

Value excluding VAT: 800 000 000.00 GBP
Explanation:

The Warrior Capability Sustainment Programme (WCSP) is part of the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) and intends to place a contract with Lockheed Martin UK Ampthill Ltd (LMUK) for the Manufacture and supply of Warrior 1 vehicle updated with WCSP Capability vehicles. WCSP will upgrade the current Warrior to meet the requirements of the British Army and extend its scheduled Out of service date to 2040. The programme is concentrated on improving lethality, fightability and survivability.

The contract will include the production and supply of Warrior vehicles with the WCSP upgrade (‘the Upgraded Vehicles’), provisioning of consumables and management of the repair asset loop and maintainer training in relation to the WCSP Upgrade and operator training in relation to the Upgraded Vehicles as an option. It is considered that this contract can be placed using the negotiated procedure without prior publication of a contract notice for technical reasons pursuant to Article 28(1)(e) of Directive 2009/81/EC (Regulation 16(1)(a)(ii) of the UK Defence and Security Public Contracts Regulations 2011.)

Reasons for single sourcing manufacture:

The design and manufacture of the Upgraded Vehicles was competed in 2009 and LMUK was the successful supplier in this competition. A contract for the design and demonstration of the Upgraded Vehicle, with options for manufacture, was granted to LMUK in 2011. The demonstration phase of that contract is approaching completion. During the design and demonstration phases, LMUK has generated a technical data pack relating to the Upgraded Vehicles (the technical data pack). MOD does not have the right to use the technical data pack. The technical data pack is necessary to perform the manufacture of the Upgraded Vehicles within a level of risk which is tolerable to MOD.

Reasons for single sourcing other scope as outlined below:

LMUK is the only contractor which will have access to the necessary technical information to enable it to provide:
  • provisioning of consumables and management of the repair asset loop for an initial 2-year period for the WCSP elements only;
  • technical and maintainer support for 14 vehicles only;
  • maintainer Train the Trainer (T3) package and provision of training equipment and course material in relation to the WCSP upgrade;
  • an option to provide training equipment and course material to enable an initial period of operator training in relation to the WCSP upgrade.
