The total budget including optional items is £375,000.00 (excluding VAT). £125,000.00 for initial purchase of LIDAR Sensor System. £250,000.00 for the optional items. Navy X requires an LIDAR system, capable of enhancing the situational awareness and collision avoidance of USV’s. Any candidate LIDAR needs to be open interfacing and have the ability to be integrated into existing navigational and anti-collision algorithms/behaviours. The package should enhance the distance, accuracy or speed at which these behaviours can be executed. There should also be consideration for the relationship between data availability and the bandwidth between the ground control station and existing and future NavyX USV’s.
