MOD Launches Heavy Lift Challenge Competitive Procurement Framework
The MOD recently created the Heavy Lift Challenge (HLC) Procurement Framework in order to accelerate the development of a range of autonomous Heavy Lift Uncrewed Air Systems for use predominantly, but not exclusively, in the maritime domain.
The Authority is inviting tenders for this competitive framework which will facilitate an environment whereby suppliers are able to demonstrate current capabilities, set out product development and commercial exploitation roadmaps and work with both the Authority and potentially with other suppliers to accelerate pace of development and reduce time to market.
Suppliers are invited to respond to the procurement tender no later than 26 July 2021, 12:00pm
Details of the Procurement (Reference: 2021/S 000-014466) are available on the Gov website here.
