Radio, television, communication, telecommunication and related equipment. Radio beacons. Radio transmission apparatus with reception apparatus. The present procurement forms part of Calliope, a fleet wide capability update programme aiming to address communications equipment obsolescence within RN and RFA surface vessels. In particular the Authority is considering placing a contract for the replacement of current V/UHF radios, including future support, by delivering a single solution based on modern technology, enabling rationalisation as well as convergence and coherence of equipment along with their support arrangements.

The selected solution will be installed on 13 Type 23 Frigates, 6 shore sites and other training establishments. The contract will include options to install and support versions of the solution on fifteen MCMVs and OPVs. A further option will be included for future installations on Royal Fleet Auxiliary vessels and associated support. With the above in mind the total number of radios to be procured, installed and integrated might reach up to 300. Support for the solution will be required from Initial Operating Capability for an initial period of 5 years.

The Centre for Quantum Photonics (CQP) at the University of Bristol is conducting R&D in quantum communications networks as part of the GBP 24 000 000 EPSRC-funded Quantum Technologies Hub in Quantum Communications (QComms). CQP is a world leading quantum information research centre pursuing fundamental quantum information science and developing unique and novel quantum technologies pioneering the use of cutting-edge integrated quantum photonics. CQP is a key partner in the QComms Hub, part of a GBP 270 000 000 investment by the UK government into quantum technologies. In particular, it is focussed on bringing quantum communications technologies out of the lab and into the real world. The aim of the project is the study and application of quantum key distribution (QKD) networks, both across the city of Bristol and the wider UK. This project will involve combining QKD with traditional network systems, and extending both capabilities through the virtualisation of network resources such that they can be defined on the fly with software defined networks. We require quantum secured communication technology operable in fibre optic and/or free-space network settings, these include but are not limited to: quantum key distribution systems, quantum repeaters, quantum relays, quantum digital signature systems, multiple party quantum communication/secret sharing/cryptography systems, classical encryptors, and quantum random number generators. These devices will ultimately be used to encrypt classical data, so interoperability with standard telecommunications equipment is desirable. Proven operation of devices in real-world testbed and deployed network settings is desired. The contact will be made up fof 4 Lots: QKD Boxes, QKD Encryptors, QKD upgrades and Future Quantum Cryptography Technology. Call off from this Framework may be made by University of York and/or The Chancellor, Masters and Scholars of the University of Cambridge. This framework is non-exclusive and there will be no minimum purchases made.

Background Information. The Communication Systems and Network Group at the University of Bristol combines fundamental academic research with a strong level of industrial application in the area of wireless communications. The Group has well-equipped laboratories with state-of-the-art test and measurement equipment and first-class computational facilities. For more than 25 years the Group has worked alongside industry to develop and exploit key connectivity technologies. Examples include: Bandwidth efficient modulation and coding; Smart antenna solutions; Efficient linear power amplifiers; Flexible RF transceivers; High-throughput wireless LANs; Multiple antenna (MIMO) architectures & algorithms; Vehicular and Car-2-car communications, Green radio and mmWave communications. Funding has been awarded by the UK EPSRC (Engineering Physical Sciences Research Council) to replace our existing wireless channel emulator with state-of-the-art equipment and specifications aligned to waveforms for 5G and beyond (2020+) wireless connectivity. Reliable end-to-end, spectrum and energy efficient wireless access necessitates the co-design of the physical layer (PHY), medium access control (MAC) and the core network. Although computer simulation plays an important role in the design and optimisation of such systems, given the complexity of modern networks hardware-in-the-loop and the use of channel emulation provides a vital insight to system behaviour and allows rigorous testing of algorithms, real-time optimisation of parameters (including cross layer operations) and RF system components. Current Situation. The University of Bristol have made extensive use of a pair of Elektrobit C8 channel emulators purchased through SRIF SEMANTIC funding some 10 years ago. It is proposed here to replace this facility (16 x 33 MHz simplex channels with limited memory and Doppler processing) with a state-of-the-art multi-channel (8 x 8 FDD duplex) wideband (160MHz) wireless. This will support channel bandwidths commensurate with the evolving trends in communication system waveform design and is capable of reproducing highly dynamically varying channels (Doppler aka high speed trains). The Objective. The selected equipment should support communication networking research and address crosscutting challenges of transmission, switching, optimization and control of wireless access also within the context of SDN and vehicular communications. The specifc mandatory and desirable characteristics of the system required are detailed in the Invitation to Tender document. As set out in II.2, the estimated duration of the contract is a minimum of 12 months, and maximum of 60 months. The University of Bristol is carrying out the procurement on behalf of itself as principal and it is not envisaged that any other person(s) or body shall have access to the contract.

Telecommunications equipment. Telecommunications equipment. Air-sea rescue services. Defence Equipment and Support is seeking expressions of interest for a possible future Contract for the replacement and ongoing support of the UK Mission Control Centre (MCC). It is intended that this shall be provisioned through a Prime Contractor and utilise a COTS solution where possible. The MCC will be a suite of hardware, software and communication components which are COSPAS-SARSAT compliant. The MCC will require technical support during installation and subsequent operation. The MCC is to be available 24 hours per day, 365 days per year, and therefore system redundancy is required by design and implementation. The Contractor will be expected to ensure continuity of capability, via an alternate geographically-separated capability, which affords a robust and rapid changeover. The MCC coordinates the UK response to emergency beacon distress alerts and is an independent sub-element of the Aeronautical Rescue Coordination Centre (ARCC) at Kinloss Barracks. The ARCC's capability and function is planned to be subsumed into a system provided and supported by the Maritime Coastguard Agency (MCA). The MCA is currently undergoing a modernisation programme, pivotal to which is the establishment of the National Maritime Operating Centre (NMOC) at Fareham, which will coordinate, manage and support all SAR assets nationally. The incorporation of the ARCC's capability by the MCA will involve the ARCC's functionality relocating from Kinloss Barracks to the NMOC. It may be preferential that the MCC will need to operate at both the NMOC and Kinloss Barracks for an initial period. Useful information pertaining to MCC specifications, and the procedures for integration into the Cospas-Sarsat System, are available on the Cospas-Sarsat website.
