We are pleased to announce that Sweden’s Försvarets Materielverk (FMV) has selected our SPIRIT interoperability management process and tool set to support the integration and testing of a new Data Link Processor(DLP) and maintenance of existing Link 16 capability for the Swedish Air Force’s ASC-890 airborne early warning aircraft.
The ASC-890 (Airborne Surveillance and Control) is based on the Saab 340 airframe and Saab’s Erieye airborne early warning and control system. The DLP will help to sustain the platform’s Link 16 Tactical Data Link (TDL) operations.
The SPIRIT process and tool set supports comprehensive systems engineering-based testing, as well as compatibility with the iSMART TDL requirements management method. SPIRIT verifies the requirements through Unified Modelling Language (UML) models of the governing standards, ensuring a complete, consistent, and correct baseline against which testing can be carried out. The same models are used to define the minimum set of test cases necessary for comprehensive validation of the platform’s implementation against the standards and original requirements. The tool set, based on the IBM Rational range of software, provides full traceability of requirements from the governing standards, through the iSMART documentation set, to test cases, test scripts and test results.
John Hartas, SyntheSys Managing Director, commented ''the sale provides further confirmation of our investment in developing processes and tools that support a through-life management approach to TDL interoperability assurance''.
