Lockheed Martin were developing a proposal in response to an Invitation To Tender (ITT) from the UK Home Office for the upgrade to the Emergency Services Communications Network.

The Emergency Services Mobile Communications Programme (ESMCP) will provide the next generation communication systems for the 3 emergency services (police, fire and rescue, and ambulance) and other public safety users. This system will be called the Emergency Services Network (ESN). ESN will provide the next generation integrated critical voice and broadband data services for the 3 emergency services.

ESN will enable integrated critical voice and broadband data services that are:

  • Enhanced to provide integrated broadband data services

  • Flexible to better match and be responsive to user needs

  • Affordable to address financial pressures on central and user budgets

In addition to the 3 emergency services, over 300 other organisations are active users of the current emergency communication service. ESMCP is working with them to help manage their transition to ESN.

Xacom provided the following consulting services:

  • Initial review and recommendations on the proposed schedule for the bid submission

  • Formulate and develop the response to the ITT in all areas concerning Project Management and Project Controls

  • Develop and define project control architecture to support Schedule, Risk and earned Value Management requirements

  • Schedule Risk Analysis to generate confidence levels through Primavera Risk Analysis
