The AIC work in the RFT includes:

  • ISR systems engineering;
  • ISR systems integration;
  • Test;
  • Software maintenance support;
  • ILS;
  • Integration and operational support;

The JP 2096 Phase 1 project is a multi-phased program that will enable and support operations of military and intelligence force elements and organisations. JP 2096 Phase 1 will provide infrastructure and functionality to the Defence Secret Network (DSN) to create a unified dataset that enables users to discover, access, analyse, manipulate and publish ISR information and intelligence in a timely manner, regardless of location, organisation, activity or information source.

JP 2096 Phase 1 will deliver this functionality by providing the infrastructure on the DSN and Deployed DSN to store, manage and process large volumes of ISR information and intelligence.

Northrop Grumman is requesting a response no later than 13 April 2017 from Australian companies that have the above capabilities, preferably including a short capability summary or product specification.
