Elbit emerges as preferred bidder for UK’s Morpheus

10 September 2018

Elbit Systems UK has been selected as the preferred bidder for the UK’s Project Morpheus Battle Management Application (BMA) contract, Jane’s has learned.

The UK’s Defence Equipment and Support (DE&S) confirmed the decision, but was unable to comment further because the contract is still at the “standstill” stage, which allows an unsuccessful bidder 10 days (until 18 September) to challenge the contract award.

Morpheus is a major part of the Land Equipment Tactical Communication and Information Systems (LE TacCIS) programme and overall is worth GBP3.2 billion (USD4.1 billion). It will replace the current Bowman system and its ComBAT battle management system.
