Ministry of Defence (MoD)
Development of a new MoD Business model within the CBRN domain
Frazer-Nash had both domain experience robust systems engineering processes to enable the development and selection of appropriate business models.
The Ministry of Defence is continually seeking ways to manage its military capability more effectively, whilst simultaneously reducing operational budgets. The Defence Industrial Strategy (DIS) cited future management of the Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) domain as a key area of military capability which would need to be addressed.
This required the evaluation of business models which would enable industry to deliver a larger element of CBRN Capability Management. CBRN Defence is a true ‘System of Systems’ that combines an appropriate mix of intelligence, detection, identification, decontamination and medical capabilities.
This complex system of systems must be managed through life and in considering a different business model, many hard and soft issues needed to be evaluated to determine the best way forward.
