MMX Communications Services are delighted to announce that the UK Ministry of Defence has awarded MMX the contract to provide the Post Design Services for the Clyde Radio Link System.

This five year contract is the first for MMX directly with the Ministry Of Defence, and was won against established major defence industry companies.

The Clyde Radio Link System is a microwave radio bearer system in South West Scotland, and the contract is for the maintenance and in-service support including 1st and 2nd line repair, system design authority post design services of the network based at 9 sites.

The bearer network also provides connectivity for the MOD’s IMM (international maritime mobile) VHF radio service in the locality and the maintenance and support of the IMM forms an integral part of the requirement. The contract is managed by the Networks Commercial Fixed Team IPT within DE&S, part of the Information Systems and Services group.
The scope of work includes maintaining a high level of system availability by providing a call-out service for the fault investigation and rectification in working hours and out-of-hours cover to support military operations and includes repair service for defective items and management of obsolescence

The contract also includes a significant technical refresh of the bearer network including the integration of existing dependant equipment and circuits onto the network which requires liaison with other MOD departments and service agencies plus a safety Case preparation and Annual safety case meetings.

Neil Bartlam (Managing Director, MMX) commented that “MMX is delighted to have The Ministry of Defence as a new customer and hope that this is the start of a long term partnership between the two organisations. It is particularly pleasing that as an SME recently acquired by the management and its employees, MMX has been recognised by the MOD as a company that can compete with established suppliers in terms of value and service capability.”
