Transformative Data Science Project Will Provide Lasting Benefit
Techmodal has won a two-year contract worth up to £8.3 million (€9.8 million) to become the Royal Navy’s Digital Services (NDS) Programme Partner for Data Science, and to deliver a scalable, agile data science capability to the service, the company announced on 21 October.
Techmodal will create a data science delivery cell with the NDS division, to help the RN become a fully digital organisation by 2023. The cell will work with NDS and Dstl data scientists to provide the RN with operational advantage, and will drive a digital culture, underpinned by support and knowledge transfer from industry experts Adarga, Capgemini, Geollect and Rebellion Defence.
This team is centred on Techmodal’s expertise and track record of delivery, creating a cutting-edge transformative data science provider that can be relied on to deliver at scale. It will offer NDS agile delivery, with specialist AI analytics, cyber expertise and geospatial intelligence knowledge.
“Winning this work is a fantastic outcome for the Techmodal team. We are looking forward to getting stuck into tasks that will rapidly deliver lasting benefit to the Royal Navy by unleashing the potential of their data,” stated Techmodal Managing Director, Gareth Vaughan.
