Weapons Systems Integration

Weapons Systems Integration

The ADF required the integration of a new 2.75 Inch Laser Guided Rocket to the Tiger Armed Reconnaissance Helicopter (ARH) to increase the capability options for the ARH. The project required support to the ADF for the initial requirements definition through to the co-ordination of flight tests, test analysis, and the engineering and project management support to achieve service release of the rocket for use. The task required Nova engineers and flight test specialists to work closely with the Army Aviation Flight Test community to deliver this essential capability outcome.

The scope of the work was broad and Nova worked with the ADF to draft the requirement definitions for the integration of the Laser Guided Rockets on the Tiger ARH and then actively project managed and delivered the integration of the Laser Guided Rocket to the existing aircraft weapon system. The work included Explosive Ordnance (EO) Design Certification of the Laser Guided Rockets, drafting of weapons preparation/loading/unloading/misfire procedures, Ground Test Planning, Flight Test Planning for flight test firing of the rocket, post flight test analysis of and interpretation of the test results, and Design Acceptance Reviews in support of the Tiger ARH Design Acceptance Representative.

This task was supported by a team of 4 engineers including a flight test engineer specialist. Nova delivered on all key steps to support the certification of the Laser Guided Rockets and continues to provide ongoing support to the Commonwealth’s Design Acceptance and Service Release of this new capability.
