Description

This ITT aims to procure up to 15 batches of first-person view racing quadcopter style drones, consisting of 20 drones each and potential associated options, capable of carrying varying payloads depending on their propeller size, which will be tested by the International Drone Capability Coalition. The intent is that, following testing, platforms that meet the requirements will be considered for a potential future production contract (up to circa 1000 drones per month).

The systems must be produced and dispatched for testing within 3 weeks of contract award (expected w/c 12 August 2024). Bidders are to ensure that their system meets all qualification questions & entry criteria prior to submitting their proposal.

Tenderers will submit proposals under this tender in order to secure funding to provide the requested number of drones, including ground-control station and ancillaries. These systems will then be tested and evaluated (up to a 3 month period). These findings will inform future requirements with the potential to lead to large-scale production contracts (subject to further contract).
