This RFT is an invitation to Tenderers to submit a Tender to the Crown for HMNZS Canterbury and the Offshore Patrol Vessels Communications Upgrade (CAN/OPV Comms Upgrade) contract opportunity. The opportunity is made up of three key phases: Preliminary Design; Design, Build and Install; and Through Life Support.
The CAN/OPV Comms Upgrade Project aims to deliver a replacement communications system for Canterbury and the OPVs that will be reliable, maintainable and have the communications capacity to support the conduct of independent and concurrent operations. It should also enable interoperability with NZDF, other agencies and partner nations to enable operations within both the New Zealand EEZ and the South Pacific, and be able to be adapted to accept additional capability as required.
The CAN/OPV Comms Upgrade Project and this opportunity are described further in paragraph 3.1 of section 3 of this Part One and in Part Two (Statement of Requirements).
