The Council is to undertake a soft market testing exercise to canvass external providers of digital screen advertising infrastructure to help us agree the most appropriate procurement route to facilitate a portfolio of large and small format outdoor digital screen advertising on Council owned land, at specified locations across the city centre. This exercise will enable us to finalise the future service specification and conduct an open and transparent tender process later this year.

Nottingham City Council's Neighbourhood Services are seeking to implement a private mobile radio network to support its objectives of increasing agility and productivity of its operations. Integral to this vision is a system that provides a real time overview of assets and resources and an effective communication method so that colleagues and equipment can be deployed efficiently and effectively. Neighbourhood Services reactive front line team consists of 50 vehicles and over 200 colleagues and respond to a variety of issues including fly tipping, graffiti and dog fouling. This is in addition to standard services such as bulky waste collection, garden assistance, hedge cutting and events management. With increasing cuts to funding year after year the requirement to deliver more for less is driving the Council to rethink its operations and a significant element of this is investment to save. The Council wishes to award a contract for the supply and installation of a radio network on a rental basis, including full maintenance, for a period of 5 years following implementation, commencing in February 2015.

To support the growing portfolio of research projects at the Centre for Aerospace Manufacturing (CAM) the University of Nottingham is making a strategic capability investment in the area of advanced informatics-enabled manufacturing. The aim is to develop a unique new research demonstrator of future automated aircraft assembly processes and systems. The demonstrator will have the capability to assemble at least 2 different aerospace products with scope to address other manufacturing domains in the future such as automotive, naval and energy. The scope of the research demonstrator has been defined in a partnership with strategic global industrial partners including Airbus, BAE Systems, GE Aviation and GKN. The demonstrator will be specifically focused on future reconfigurable assembly systems including automated drilling, bonding and fastening processes, highly flexible and adaptable tooling and fixtures and analytical data intensive component and process tracking and validation. The research demonstrator will include as a minimum the following key elements: A. Demonstrator IT Infrastructure. The demonstrator IT infrastructure consisting of Portal Interface, Component Data Monitor, is required to integrate robotic, human and tooling elements and provide key functions such as control, monitoring, communication, data processing and performance monitoring. B. Data Capture, Position Monitoring and Inspection Infrastructure. 1 of the critical components in the demonstrator is the data capture, monitoring and communication infrastructure. The required equipment includes novel devices to provide capability for accurate position tracking and measurement, and the means to present this to relevant users. C. Tooling Set. A selection of robot tools and auxiliary equipment has been requested to support a variety of applications ranging from drilling and machining heads to sealant dispensers and grippers. D. Robotic Equipment. Relevant robotics equipment will be integrated within the overall process and informatics infrastructure to deliver highly adaptive processes with enhanced precision and reliability. A carefully selected set of robots will be required to provide the capability to test new robotic concepts in cooperation, data exchange, human — robot interactions and hybrid decision making, teleportation, plug and produce integration, social learning, configuration and adaptation. Priority will be given to solutions offering next generation equipment that can demonstrate significant step changes in technology. As a guide the budget for Phase 1 of the Future Automated Aircraft Assembly Demonstrator is circa 1 000 000 GBP. Tenderers are invited to bid for all work packages (e.g. WP1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6), individual work packages (e.g. WP 2) or any number of sub-work packages (e.g. WP1.2). 19 of the total 27 sub-work packages (Phase 1) will be awarded now (subject to affordability limitations) and the remaining eight sub-work packages are intended to be awarded subject to further funding availability (Phase 2) at least circa. 12+ months.

To support the growing portfolio of research projects at the Centre for Aerospace Manufacturing (CAM) the University of Nottingham is making a strategic capability investment in the area of advanced informatics-enabled manufacturing. The aim is to develop a unique new research demonstrator of future automated aircraft assembly processes and systems. The demonstrator will have the capability to assemble at least 2 different aerospace products with scope to address other manufacturing domains in the future such as automotive, naval and energy. The scope of the research demonstrator has been defined in a partnership with strategic global industrial partners including Airbus, BAE Systems, GE Aviation and GKN. The demonstrator will be specifically focused on future reconfigurable assembly systems including automated drilling, bonding and fastening processes, highly flexible and adaptable tooling and fixtures and analytical data intensive component and process tracking and validation. The research demonstrator will include as a minimum the following key elements: A. Demonstrator IT Infrastructure The demonstrator IT infrastructure consisting of Portal Interface, Component Data Monitor, is required to integrate robotic, human and tooling elements and provide key functions such as control, monitoring, communication, data processing and performance monitoring. B. Data Capture, Position Monitoring and Inspection Infrastructure 1 of the critical components in the demonstrator is the data capture, monitoring and communication infrastructure. The required equipment includes novel devices to provide capability for accurate position tracking and measurement, and the means to present this to relevant users. C. Tooling Set A selection of robot tools and auxiliary equipment has been requested to support a variety of applications ranging from drilling and machining heads to sealant dispensers and grippers. D. Robotic Equipment Relevant robotics equipment will be integrated within the overall process and informatics infrastructure to deliver highly adaptive processes with enhanced precision and reliability. A carefully selected set of robots will be required to provide the capability to test new robotic concepts in cooperation, data exchange, human — robot interactions and hybrid decision making, teleportation, plug and produce integration, social learning, configuration and adaptation. Priority will be given to solutions offering next generation equipment that can demonstrate significant step changes in technology.
