THE Ministry of Defence has awarded BAE Systems a £22.5m, seven-year contract to support the Royal Navy’s Submarine and Mine Warfare Command Team training systems.

Under the IT contract, BAE Systems’ engineers will work with the Royal Navy’s teams at naval bases HMS Collingwood in Fareham, Clyde, Devonport to help ensure the submarine and mine warfare training systems are updated, ready and available to meet naval training schedules.

Mike Holstead, a team leader at the MoD, said the new contract ‘builds on the existing relationship we have with BAE Systems’ and will ‘enable continuation of high quality training delivery for the Royal Navy’.
