ATMS Specialist Systems Integration and Test

ATMS Specialist Systems Integration and Test

Lockheed Martin, in partnership with the Australian Rail Track Corporation (ARTC), have developed an Advanced Train Management System (ATMS) that will increase rail capacity, provide greater operational flexibility and will improve the safety of Australia’s rail freight network.

Advanced in-locomotive technology provides the precise real-time location of trains, allowing ARTC to significantly increase the amount of freight traffic that can travel on their existing rail network. Via the ATMS, train crews are advised of speed restrictions and are made aware of track work locations and the ATMS enforces movement and speed authorities, resulting in safer operations across the interstate network. Finally, the ATMS lowers operational and maintenance costs by eliminating trackside signalling and greatly reducing complex trackside infrastructure.

As part of the initial deployment of the ATMS, Lockheed Martin is required to undertake an extensive program of Systems Integration Testing (SIT), Factory Acceptance Testing (FAT) and Site Acceptance Testing (SAT) to demonstrate that all the safety and operationally critical requirements of the ATMS are being met.

Nova Systems has been engaged to support this program by providing specialist systems integration and test engineers who are able to quickly and seamlessly assimilate within the existing project team.  Nova Systems’ engineers are undertaking various activities including quality assurance oversight, executing defined test procedures, updating and revising test artefacts and various software assurance activities.

Nova Systems’ significant capabilities and flexibility in supporting this program of activities is highly valued by the client and has been critical in ensuring that key milestones have been met.
