Leading Consortium of Specialist Companies
SEA (Systems Engineering & Assessment), a Cohort company, has been awarded a contract by a UK government agency to lead a team in technology research and development in the soldier systems domain. With an initial value of £700,000 in 2018, work through 2021 could bring the total value of the contract to £3 million, the company stated.
SEA will lead a team of specialist companies to develop a weapon system that combines novel and emerging small arms technologies to produce an integrated system that will deliver greater efficacy for the individual soldier on the battlefield, the company announced on 30 January.
“This contract recognises our position at the forefront of soldier system research and development and our capability as a prime contractor. This contract award, together with other recent wins, enhances the visibility of future Group revenue,” commented Andy Thomis, Chief Executive of Cohort.
