TELECOMWORLDWIRE-23 July 2001-CDC wins contract to deliver new communications system for UK military (C)1994-2001 M2 COMMUNICATIONS LTD

The UK Ministry of Defence has chosen CDC Systems UK Ltd, a subsidiary of General Dynamics, to supply the Bowman communications system for Britain's Armed Forces.

Bowman, which will replace the existing Clansman family of radios, is designed to provide the Armed Forces with a secure tactical communications solution. The main features of the system are secure voice and data communications, situational awareness so that all users know their locations and the locations of friendly and opposition forces and protection against electronic warfare.

The selection of CDC as the preferred supplier of Bowman comes just twelve months after the Defence Ministry decided to reopen the competition for the contract. Financial terms were not disclosed.
