UK: CGI has been awarded a contract by the UK Ministry of Defence (MOD) to provide ongoing support services for the Fire Control Battlefield Information System Application (FC BISA) and the Fire Control Application (FCA) system. FC BISA is a distributed command and control application that helps the British Artillery and Infantry provide accurate and effective indirect fire support to the British Army during operations.
CGI will provide software applications support for FC BISA and the FCA as well as hardware support for the FCA handheld computer platform. The contract builds on CGI’s 12 years of experience in developing and supporting mission critical, operational systems that meet high integrity levels. The applications, which were developed by CGI, automate many operational functions to improve tempo, safety and accuracy and are a critical part of a long-term programme to modernise indirect fire support systems.
