The Chief Systems Engineering Branch (CSEB) Capability Design Services (CDS) within CASG, required specialist systems engineering knowledge to support the development of Capability Design Documentation (CDD) across Australia’s portfolio of defence projects.
In 2016, following a successful three-year Capability Development Group contract, Nova Systems won the highly competitive bid and was engaged to deliver systems engineering support for CDS. Nova Systems provided Systems Engineers and Capability Development Document Developers to CDS for the project. Using their depth of expertise, the team developed a range of CDD including Operational Concept Documents, Function and Performance Specification and specialist trade studies across a vast array of projects.
Working collegiately with two other providers, the team collectively delivered over 3000 man-days of Level 4 technical specialist systems engineering support over the life of the project. Working with the projects early in the capability life cycle, Nova Systems successfully identified and reduced risks in their acquisition and in-service phases.
Nova Systems’ preeminent support to the branch resulted in a contract extension and follow-on engagement for CSEB Major Service Provider support in 2018. Nova’s repeat engagement with the branch is a testimony to the quality of work Nova provides for its clients.
