The latest phase in the Royal Navy Oasis project has gone to Systems Designers Plc of Fleet, Hampshire with Gould Computer Systems. Oasis System 4 is valued at UKP11.5m over five years and is for 62 ruggedised Gould PN6000s for administration on board Royal Navy aircraft carriers, submarines, frigates and destroyers. Software will be built around the Ingres relational database and fourth generation language, and ACE Microsystems’ Lex will be the word processor. Ethernets using TCP/IP will be installed in all craft by Spider Systems of Edinburgh. Systems Designers and Gould also won the Oasis 3 contract for shore-based systems back in June 1987; this time they are understood to have beaten competitive tenders from British Telecom and NCR Corp.
