Babcock Australasia (Babcock) will host virtual engagement events for interested suppliers on Tuesday 08 February and Thursday 10 February in a call for industry to highlight their capabilities and offerings in support of the Australian Army’s LAND 125 Phase 4 Integrated Soldier System (ISS) program.
Each session will communicate how industry can contribute to Babcock’s approach to delivering a ‘best of breed’ soldier system that is threat-informed and evolutionary in nature. The sessions will also provide participants with an opportunity to submit feedback on how Babcock can better enable their participation and success over the life of the program.
Babcock’s Head of Customer Solutions (Defence & Security), Craig Schwartz encourages suppliers of current and future soldier systems technologies and solutions to join Babcock’s supplier network and register for the industry roadshows.
“As a candidate industry partner, Babcock’s approach to LAND 125 Phase 4 places Australian industry participation at the core of its offer,” Mr Schwartz said.
“Our industry engagement roadshows will communicate our vision, plans and timeline to deliver an ISS that provides Australian soldiers with a tactical advantage today and into the future.
“We want to engage with future suppliers and solution providers to further our understanding of their offerings and ensure the Australian warfighter remains capable and effective in the face of changing operational requirements and emerging threats.
“To help us better enable future partners and suppliers, we will also release an industry questionnaire at the conclusion of the roadshow, providing participants with a platform to communicate their perspectives on LAND 125 Phase 4 and what they need from the Prime Contractor in the delivery of an ISS for Army.”
Babcock’s industry engagement builds on the company’s long-standing commitment to Sovereign Industry Capability through an independent and objective approach to the exploration, procurement, integration and delivery of capability to meet operational requirements.
“Babcock’s model enables freedom and flexibility as we’re not tied to a single Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM). This allow us to solely focus on customer requirements, free from any bias or risk of binding the Commonwealth to pre-determined capability solutions,” Mr Schwartz said.
