DASA is seeking proposals that accurately account for, and track, personnel on board the aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth (QNLZ).
Award: Share of up to £250,000
Opens: 25th Jan 2019
Closes: 8th Mar 2019
HMS QNLZ currently uses a physical peg board (for core Ship’s Company) a T-card holder (for accredited visiting contractors/shore support staff) and a visitor log (for all other visitors) to account for the number of personnel on board.
This competition is seeking novel ideas for how to account for, and track, personnel on board the UK’s largest Royal Navy ship.
This competition has 2 challenges:
Your proposal must meet Challenge 1 (mandatory) but proposals that meet both Challenge 1 and Challenge 2 are welcomed.
Challenge 1: Accounting for personnel (mandatory)
This challenge is seeking prototype technologies with the ability to positively log personnel on and off the ship; including the ability to add ad-hoc visitors quickly and without additional staff resources. It must provide an accurate readout of the number of personnel on board in real time.
Challenge 2: Personnel tracking (optional)
This challenge is seeking prototype technologies that would, in an emergency situation, allow for the immediate positive location of all personnel on board. Whilst this does not have to be an exact location, it must significantly narrow the location of the person to a section of the ship.
The following are considered within scope for this competition:
The funding of at least £250k is expected to fund multiple proposals. Individual proposals must be lower than £125k including all costed options; any proposals received that are in excess of £125k will be automatically deemed non-compliant.
Contracts will be awarded for an initial duration of 3.5 months with further costed options included for up to a further 5.5 months trials and tests.
