MOD are bringing a new RPAS (UAV) into service. It needs to be controlled and send information through the Defence Network. The Defence Network consists of satellites, ground stations, fixed networks and mobile networks. These need to be utilised as required to meet user need and the RPAS then needs to be integrated into the overall network so it can be operated. High-level Target Architectures have already been developed by the Defence Digital and they have provided cost estimates to deliver the integrated services. Additional work is required to develop more detailed solution, service and technical architectures and to integrate systems to support the delivery of the required end to end services. All individuals will require SC Security Clearance.
