Cervus supports SEA- Soldier System Research

Continuing to support the UK’s Dismounted Close Combat capabilities.

SEA has been contracted by a UK government agency to lead a team in the area of Soldier System Research and Development. The contract has an initial value of £700,000 for 2018 but is likely to continue until 2021, with a potential total value in excess of £3m.

Under the contract, SEA will lead a team of specialist companies which includes Cervus to develop a weapon system that combines novel and emerging small arms technologies to produce an integrated system that will deliver greater efficacy for the individual soldier on the battlefield.

Andy Thomis, Chief Executive of Cohort, said:

This contract recognises our position at the forefront of Soldier System Research and Development and our capability as a prime contractor. This contract award, together with other recent wins, enhances the visibility of future Group revenue.

Paddy Little, Technical Director of Cervus , responded:

As a specialist company, we are hoping to bring a set of innovative experimentation, data capture and analysis techniques to support this important research, and very much look forward to working with SEA and the rest of the team.
