The New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) has a requirement for HMNZS MATATAUA (MAT) to provide Military Hydrographic Capability in order to understand the underwater littoral environment, resulting in military or other vessels of strategic/operational importance being able to make use of sea areas that otherwise may be denied by lack of depth or underwater obstruction information.

The Royal New Zealand Navy (RNZN) Military Hydrographic Capability has primarily been meeting its requirements through the operation of shallow water (0-200m) Multi Beam Echo Sounder (MBES) systems from HMNZS RESOLUTION (RES), and Survey Motor Boat (SMB) ADVENTURE (ADV) in various forms since 1999.

The existing systems no longer meet NZDF operational requirements and NZDF is now seeking to equip the RNZN with portable MBES systems that have the ability to work from any RNZN boat and other small vessels, as required.

Interested parties can view and respond to this opportunity on the NZDF SmartProcure website portal at:
