AIR WARFARE DESTROYER ALLIANCE SUPPORT

AIR WARFARE DESTROYER ALLIANCE SUPPORT

The Australian Air Warfare Destroyer (AWD) project will deliver three world-class ships and their support systems to the Royal Australian Navy. In April 2005 the Australian Government selected Raytheon Australia Pty Ltd as the Combat System – Systems Engineer, and in May 2005 selected ASC AWD Shipbuilder Pty Ltd as the Shipbuilder. ASC and Raytheon Australia join CASG in forming the AWD Alliance which is now working hard to deliver this cutting edge capability to the Navy. On 20 June 2007, the Australian Government announced that the Navantia designed F100 had been selected as the basis for Australia’s Hobart Class AWDs.

The Commonwealth, Raytheon and ASC each engaged Nova to provide combat systems engineering, T&E, V&V, systems integration, integrated logistics support (ILS) and enterprise risk management support. Nova supported underwater sensors and underwater effectors engineering and test, mission system supportability T&E, hardware engineering, ships communication and information systems engineering, electronic warfare systems engineering, project management support, system safety engineering, dockyard and operational safety, as well as configuration management support services.

The support provided by Nova over many years has contributed to the successful launch of the first of the three AWD ships, Hobart, in May 2015. Work has continued apace on Hobart, now alongside at Techport in Adelaide, and Nova is continuing to provide high-end services in support of the ongoing integration and set to work activities, in addition to system safety and engineering support services.
