MORPHEUS is a Defence Project that will deliver the next generation of Tactical Communications and Information Services (TacCIS) capability. It will introduce a more agile TacCIS solution (both technical and business) that will enable emergent technology to be rapidly exploited for User benefit and be more responsive to changes in User need. It will also realise efficiencies in the way in which TacCIS capability is acquired, supported and critical system obsolescence is managed.

The legacy TacCIS systems have been incrementally improved over the past decade and in pure functional terms provide a capability that broadly satisfies military need. However, there are shortfalls in legacy system usability, training burden and other pan Defence Lines of Development (DLoD) areas that need to be addressed. Dismounted Situational Awareness (DSA) capability will be delivered through MORPHEUS. In addition the current prime contract and closed system inhibits the cost effective introduction of change and the rapid exploitation of technological advances.

MORPHEUS seeks ownership and control of a technically and commercially open architecture to deliver TacCIS, which is fully integrated with the wider enterprise architecture, and responsive to changing user needs and emerging technology, in line with the Defence Information Communication Technology (ICT) and Defence as a Platform (DaaP) strategies.

The CDO also provides resource to the Project Design and Delivery function to support the competitions for organisations (e.g. MORPHEUS Test and Reference Centre (MTRC)) to fulfil the future operating model and the competitions for supply of products (e.g. Battle Management Application (BMA)).

The Architect will be responsible for developing, managing and exploiting the TacCIS Segment Service Architecture and will report to the CDO Lead Architect.
