Show close time for other time zones
Defence seeks to acquire an IASWTT that will provide a significant improvement to existing anti-submarine warfare training capabilities by providing a realistic, long endurance, recoverable, re-useable and programmable target in order to deliver effective force level procedural and tactical anti-submarine warfare training.
Defence also seeks to enter into an in-service support arrangement for the IASWTT for up to 10 years. Defence expects that the applicable support concept will be refined, but expects that it will require management of Services, provision of Operating Support Services, Engineering Services, Maintenance Services, Supply Services, Training Services, provision and support of Support Resources, Quality Management, and Healthy, Safety and Environmental Management.
Defence has released a linked ASDEFCON (Complex Materiel) Volume 1 Acquisition Contract with an ASDEFCON (Support Short) Contract to cover both the acquisition and support of the IASWTT capability. The purpose of linking the acquisition and support contracts is to ensure that Defence has an integrated and risk managed solution for the acquisition and support of the IASWTT capability.
