Commissioning & Test

Commissioning & Test

The successful introduction of a capability, whether it is a defence system or a complex commercial plant such as an unconventional gas field, depends on a thorough and rigorous process of testing and commissioning. The best-laid plans almost never survive the first contact with the enemy, and commissioning and test is the crucial risk reduction and operationalisation stage where the complex capability is put through its paces in a controlled environment before being made live.

Our people understand the technology and the operational environment, and most importantly, the need of testing complex capability in a gradual manner that eliminates the risks of introducing a complex capability into operational service. From developmental testing through to live field test, we provide the expertise from initial commissioning and test planning in the early project phases through to executing the tests and delivering capability to our customers.

With our global presence, we bring the best commissioning and test practices to our customers. Whether it is the latest fighter aircraft or the latest well head technology, we have our systematic test process to de-risk our customer’s program.

Our capabilities include:

  • Development Test and Evaluation
  • Acceptance Test and Evaluation
  • Operational Test and Evaluation
  • Systems-of-Systems Testing
  • Range Safety and Management
  • Validation of Operations Procedures
