Alexandria, VA -- Radian Inc, an Engineered Support Services Inc. (ESSI) company, has been chosen by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Supreme Allied Command-Transformation to perform a study of new concepts and existing technologies for the design, construction, and maintenance of NATO base camps. These base camps would be used by a deployed joint task force and the headquarters of the NATO Response Force. The study is worth $170,000 and will last six months.
The base camp study is Radianís second study award from NATO in as many months. The first was for a water generation and distribution study, which is currently underway. Both projects will provide market surveys of existing and emerging technologies; recommend a system that best suits NATOís needs; and include an equipment demonstration in an exercise.
The end result of the base camp study will be a fully deployable camp that will be adaptable to all different terrains, and usable in weather conditions from sub-arctic to tropical. Radianís proposed solution for producing, purifying, and distributing water on-site will provide NATO and coalition forces with an alternative to the current method of importing and delivering bottled or tanked water to remote locations. This will result in safer, more cost-effective operations, as well as reduce the amount of logistical planning and cost required to execute such endeavors.
The water generation and distribution study and the base camp study are part of an organization-wide transformation effort to improve NATOís ability to uphold its global security commitments. NATOís ultimate goal is to support the NATO Response Force (NRF) with the technology and expertise necessary to meet its needs in a worldwide expeditionary environment.
