The UK Ministry of Defence has issued an initial Invitation to Tender (ITT) for a replacement for the British Army’s vehicle-based Land Environment Air Picture Provision (LEAPP) capability, which was published on the Defence Contracts Online website on 5 March. The value of the contract is up to GBP10 million (USD12 million).
LEAPP provides air situational awareness to land formation headquarters.

The existing solution is based on Lockheed Martin UK’s (LMUK’s) SkyKeeper system and is truck-mounted.
