    Saw photos somewhere recently - may be the glossy book with all the photos - the "A Life In the Defence Forces" style book - have one at home, but can't think of the title...

    Odd combination of unit/requirement. Possibly the Army want to learn about beach landings without requiring the NS to assist them every time.

    Fort Davis anyone?

    Could be for the SSG (?) Special Search Group (?) down there. Don't they have a crew in Cork specially trained for mountain rescue, diving, going into deep caves, for rescue?

    10x FLEXIBLE & 10x RIGID ENDOSCOPE VISUAL SEARCH KITS for the Engineers

    The Endoscopes should provide visual access to inaccessible areas of buildings, ships, vehicles, cases, packages etc through small apertures with the minimum of disturbance using fibre-optic technology. They will be portable and battery powered.

    This bit is of interest:
    "The equipment must be designed for use by military forces and preference will be given to equipment with a current NATO military equipment stock number in order to meet the Defence Force¿s requirements on interoperability of equipment. The equipment manufacturer must be accredited to IS 9001.

    The manufacturer (not the supplier) of the equipment will be obliged to provide a complete set of their equipment and demonstrate its capabilities during a series of standard tests at the Military Engineering School, DFTC, or at a mutually agreed location, in advance of any tender being considered. Failure to comply with these conditions will result in any subsequent tender being rejected."

    Maintenance is included in the contract - faulty equipment will be returned to the manufacturer who will return in within 6 weeks.

    I'm quoting the tender documentation, ISO 9001 implementation means that specific policies and procedures are in place that is all.
