FRIMLEY, England, Sept. 14 (UPI) -- BAE Systems has announced its team to bid for Britain's Joint Military Air Traffic Management Service project.

Project Marshall is for terminal air traffic management, surveillance and communications and will be deployed to support British and coalition expeditionary forces worldwide.

BAE Systems said its team includes Indra, Altran Praxis and LFV Aviation Consulting AB.

BAE Systems will provide the overall leadership and governance for the team; Indraa, Europe's leading ATM Systems integrator, will provide the air traffic management and control systems; Altran will provide assurance that technical specifications meet U.K. national, international and British Ministry of Defense standards to enable subsequent approval from regulatory authorities; and LFV Aviation Consulting AB will be responsible for providing safe and cost-effective air navigation solutions while minimizing the environmental impact.

"The team is committed to developing a cost effective and innovative solution which meets the customer's needs and requirements," said Steve Timms, managing director, Defense Information, Training and Services at BAE Systems.

"This will include an innovative business solution modeling environment that provides realistic and verifiable evidence of operational capability, linked directly to improved working practices and technology upgrades.

"The BAE Systems-led team aims to procure equipment and services from a variety of sources from either existing providers or from within the wider supply chain.

"The team is confident that our combined capabilities and track record will provide a value for money and technically compliant solution and look forward to supporting the Ministry of Defense in this vital program," he said.
