Roke has been awarded a competitive contract from the UK Ministry of Defence to improve the British Army’s training assessment capability by bringing new insights into the Radio Frequency (RF), Electro-Optic (EO) and Infra-red (IR) emissions associated with battlefield operations.

Under Project BESTLA, Roke will provide remote observation, surveillance and RF emission collection systems for the British Army’s Land Warfare Centre (LWC). 

This service from Roke will provide enhanced support to LWC’s Observer Mentors in their training assessment and feedback. Project BESTLA can be used wherever the British Army trains around the world. 

The solution builds upon Roke’s established Electronic Warfare as a Service (EWaaS) offering, exploiting the RESOLVE and PERCEIVE product lines, and combining with EO/IR surveillance capabilities delivered by Soteria Defence and Security Limited.

The contract has a value of £4.7 million for the initial three-years’ service with options to extend for a further two years.

“At Roke, we’re proud of our heritage of world-class innovation in support of the defense of our nation. Through Project BESTLA, we’ll build on the success of our Electronic Warfare products, RESOLVE and PERCEIVE, to develop new tactical communication solutions for The British Army. This will offer a real advantage to the eyes and ears of the troops in their global training missions,” said Paul MacGregor, Managing Director of Roke. “We’re also pleased to be working alongside Soteria Defence and Security Limited on this project. Soteria will provide ex-military personnel with extensive experience of army training exercises to deliver specialized and dynamic consultancy services to Project BESTLA.”
