Support to MAN Military Vehicles

Support to MAN Military Vehicles

Nova Systems was contracted by Rheinmetall MAN Military Vehicles Australia (RMMVA) to provide EMC/EMI support to their Project Land 121 Phase 3B. Under Land 121 Phase 3B the Australian Defence Force (ADF) will acquire up to 2700 medium-weight, medium and heavy vehicles along with associated modules and trailers. The vehicle fleet will include both protected vehicles (for operational deployment and tactical training) and unprotected vehicles (primarily for tactical training). The new acquired fleet will replace the ADF’s current fleet of Unimog, Mack and S-Liner trucks.

Nova Systems was engaged to provide EMI/EMC support across all facets of the entire project. Input was sought at the various design stages (preliminary, detailed and critical) for all nine vehicles and all ten modules being delivered, with the emphasis on operational impact to and from the C4I (Command, Control, Communications, Computers and Intelligence) system. The actual integration of the C4I system was tasked to Thales Australia.

Nova’s engagement is essentially the embedment of a specialist staff into the existing RMMVA engineering support team. The support provided consists of writing and reviewing MSR (milestone review) documentation, performing DT&E (design, test and evaluation) activities, writing and reviewing test procedures and test reports, preparing ECPs (engineering change proposals) and CCPs (contract change proposals), and conducting AT&E (acceptance test and evaluation) activities. The role requires close cooperation between all parties involved – RMMVA, its head company in Europe (RMMV), its various subcontractors (module manufacturer and C4I integrator), and the Commonwealth of Australia.

To date, Nova’s support assisted two types of vehicles reaching the end of their respective AT&E phase, with the successful handover to ADF of the first batch of vehicles in early April.

The valued contribution by Nova System has resulted in an extension of the contract of EMI/EMC support until the end of the year, with the outlook of another year after that.
