From 2015 to 2020, BAE Systems CORDA delivered the ASC as prime contractor on behalf of Dstl. Each year tasks up to £20m flowed through the contract to members of the Supply Chain  delivering high impact analysis to decision makers across UK Defence & Security.
 
The ASC covered three broad areas:
  • Strategy, Policy and Enterprise Level Decision Support. Analysis to support the development of strategy and policy options and the cost-effective balance of capabilities required to robustly deliver Defence and Security objectives.
  • Capability and Investment Decision Support. Analysis to support capability generation, development, acquisition and use.
  • Development and maintenance of enduring analysis capabilities. The development of methods, models and tools to support analysis tasks.
Following the success of the ASC, Dstl created the Analysis for Science & Technology Research in Defence (ASTRID) framework, which BAE Systems CORDA is the prime contractor for.
