DEVELOPMENT OF TEST CONCEPT DOCUMENTS

DEVELOPMENT OF TEST CONCEPT DOCUMENTS

The SEA 1000 Future Submarine Program (FSP) continues planning to provide the Australian Defence Force with its next generation of submarine capability beyond the planned withdrawal of the Collins Class submarine. FSP had a requirement for the development of Test and Evaluation infrastructure and costs for SEA 1000 Future Submarine, which will be used to assist Naval Undersea Warfare Centre (NUWC) to provide a study on US Submarine T&E costs and infrastructure ensuring that the output of that study factors adequately support the Australian context and is sufficient in breadth and detail to develop a costed Test Concept Document (TCD) as recommended by the SEA1000 Strategic TCD.

Nova Systems was engaged to provide the FSP with Australian submarine T&E subject matter expertise to:

  • Ensure that the study covers the breadth of test capabilities intended by the TCD;
  • Engage with the appropriate authorities and experts in Australia to produce the required level of cost detail for a First Pass TCD; and
  • Plan and conduct a Workshop 4 in accordance with DCDM Pt 2 Ch 7. The output from this workshop will be used to update the SEA1000 TCD to First Pass maturity in readiness for submission to Government.

 

As an example of the depth and breadth of Nova Systems’ maritime knowledge and experience, Nova Systems assigned Steve Davies, a former Submarine Force Commander and Director General Submarine Capability with 30 years’ experience in the Royal Australian Navy, to the task. Steve successfully delivered the one-star endorsement TCD in June 2015.
