At DSEI, Rear Admiral Russ Harding, assistant chief of the naval staff for aviation and carriers, told AIN that he is “trying to change that date back to 2014.” Meanwhile, the MoD’s Crows Nest procurement team has told LMUK and Thales to expect a downselect in early 2015 so that the system can be in service beginning in 2018.

General Dynamics has agreed to pay millions of pounds in compensation after it failed to stick to a timetable to provide a complete set of requirements to Lockheed Martin UK for the development of a turret to be built for a key new British Army scout vehicle program.
Sources familiar with the situation, who asked not to be identified, said at the DSEi defense show in London the two sides had settled their differences and agreed to a deal after months of wrangling over the issue.

Time to put it out of its misery?
