Battle Management System - Verification & Validation Support

Battle Management System - Verification & Validation Support

Nova Systems was contracted by Elbit Systems of Australia to execute the Battle Management System (BMS) Verification and Validation (V&V) program to network the Australian Army Command and Control capability. This was Elbit Systems first major programme in Australia and required a highly capable partner to ensure they verified of all of the Army’s requirements.

Nova Systems planned managed and executed Elbit Systems’ Acceptance Test and Evaluation (AT&E) programme in consultation with the Defence Materiel Organisation (DMO) Project Office and the Land Engineering Agency. The AT&E program was a comprehensive verification of the BMS mounted system installed on six vehicle types and two dismounted systems requirements including communication, networking, application, interoperability, environmental, electrical, structural and human factors.

The BMS integrated platforms successfully achieved Design Acceptance and Certification. Elbit Systems and DMO were especially impressed with the BMS model developed to verify Electronic Environmental Effects (E3) saving over 800 planned hours in an E3 chamber. The DMO uses the AT&E documentation developed by Nova Systems as exemplars for other Land programmes. Elbit Systems directly credited Nova Systems AT&E programme as key to meeting its first critical milestone to provide the Army networked platforms for Operational Test & Evaluation at exercise Talisman Sabre 2011, seven months after Critical Design review.
